 Bangalore: Intel has announced the availability of XMM 2138 platform for Dual-SIM and Dual-Standby (DSDS) operation.

The platform is based on X-GOLD 213 EDGE baseband chip, which being a low-cost single chip solution, offers cost-effective solution for the dual-SIM market. The X-GOLD 213 EDGE for mobile internet brings in integration of GSM baseband, RF transceiver, mixed signal, power management, SRAM and FM radio in 65nm CMOS technology. The 8x8 mm eWLB-217 lead-free package of the X-GOLD 213 allows compact and slim feature rich designs. According to Dr. Hermann Eul, President, Intel Mobile Communications, with the cost-effective platform, Intel has shown its commitment towards providing solutions to all the market segments ranging from smartphones to low-cost models.
