Nokia today announced that it is introducing a licensing and multisourcing model for its chipset strategy. The mobile phone maker also announced a new deeper relationship with STMicroelectronics for developing 3G technologies.

Under this renewed strategy Nokia will discontinue parts of its own chipset development and expand its use of commercially available chipsets.
Nokia will however continue to develop its leading modem technology, which includes protocol software and related digital design for WCDMA/GSM and its evolution.Based on this renewed strategy, Nokia is now working with four chipset suppliers. Texas Instruments continues to be a broad scope supplier across all protocols, Broadcom has been chosen as a supplier in EDGE, Infineon Technologies as a supplier in GSM, and STMicroelectronics as a supplier in 3G.

Nokia and STMicroelectronics are negotiating a plan relating to transferring a part of Nokia's Integrated Circuit (IC) operations to STMicroelectronics.
The multifaceted agreement will enable STMicroelectronics to design and manufacture 3G chipsets based on Nokia's modem technologies, energy management and RF (radio frequency) technology and deliver complete solutions to Nokia and the open market.
