Open standard for wireless applications

Monday, 13 January, 2003

STMicroelectronics and Texas Instruments have teamed up to define and promote an open standard for wireless application processor interfaces.

The Omapi standard provides the Open Mobile Application Processsor Interfaces for application processors targeting 2.5G and 3G mobile phones, PDAs and other portable and multimedia products.

The standard comprises a set of software interfaces to the operating system and a set of hardware interfaces defining common application peripherals.

It is claimed to benefit OS vendors because it will enable them to define common software APIs (application program interfaces) and device drivers for different application processors, maximising re-use and commonality in the OS port.

Software developers will have a common standard set of hardware interfaces to write applications that may reduce development resources.
