About Intel Mobile Communications


Intel Mobile Communications (IMC), is the mobile research and development division of Intel Corporation. It was only recently formed after Intel Corporation completed the acquisition of the Wireless Solutions (WLS) division of Infineon in February 2011. The company has approximately 4,000 employees all over the world. Intel Mobile Communications is represented in altogether 17 countries around the world and has a strong presence in the Asian growth markets.

Product Portfolio

IMC develops, manufactures and markets semiconductor products and solutions for wireless communications. It targets the fast growing market segments of smart phones, connected devices (i.e. tablets, mobile PCs, M2M), and ultra-low-cost/entry phones. Its roadmap is focused on providing cost-effective 2G/3G single-chip platforms for ULC phones up to entry-level smart phones and 3G/4G slim modem and RF solutions for mid-to high-end smart phones and connected devices.


Vision - "Networking the world – with innovative mobile phone solutions"

The world is witnessing a convergence of computing and telecommunications technologies. Today, many notebooks offer Internet access at anywhere and any time, increasingly via an integrated modem. Every smart phone these days provides an array of functions that were formerly the province of the classical computer. The borders between computing and telecommunications technologies are disappearing. New devices such as tablets are emerging. In a few years we may see further, entirely new devices – but one thing is for sure: They will all be connected to the Internet – no matter when, no matter where.

The number of these devices is growing rapidly. Market researchers anticipate that in three years’ time some six billion people on Earth will own a mobile phone. For many of them it will be the only device with which they have Internet access. The number of smart phones is set to increase by 2.7 billion in the next five years, the number of tablets by several hundreds of millions.

At Intel Mobile Communications, the vision is to pave the way towards this networked world by providing innovative, fine-tuned mobile communications solutions. Joining forces with the parent company Intel means that in future Intel Mobile Communications will be in a position to integrate mobile communications technology and application processors in intelligent solutions.

In 2006, Intel Corporation and Micron Technology, Inc. announced a joint venture on the development of the NAND flash memory named IM Flash Technologies. The Singapore joint venture’s facility which has come online in late 2008 uses the 50nm process technology on 300mm wafers. To test-bed new products, Intel has also partnered Changi General Hospital to develop its Mobile Clinical Assistant, a lightweight mobile device that provides information on patients’ conditions and test results to caregivers who are on the move.
