broadening the scope of its potential applications to
other uses such as optical coating on glasses and win-
dows. The team is currently pursuing the commer-
cialization of this technology.
t the Mobile World Congress 2010 Infineon
Technologies (FSE: IFX / OTCQX: IFNNY),
Germany, announced the availability of XMM™6260,
the latest platform in its 3G slim-modem family. The
XMM 6260 platform is optimized as a slim-modem
for smart phone architectures coupled with an appli-
cation processor or as a standalone solution for PC
modems and data cards. This advanced HSPA+ plat-
form is based on two new highly integrated Infineon pared to competitor solutions typically using between
devices: the X-GOLD™626 baseband processor and six and ten passives.
the SMARTi™UE2 Radio Frequency (RF) transceiver.
Together with the Infineon 3GPP Release 7 protocol Furthermore Infineon has filed a complaint with the
stack, the XMM 6260 platform comprises a fully inte- U.S. International Trade Commission (ITC) against

complaint asserts that Elpida has engaged in unfair
