IBM on Monday said it has developed new chips for quickly transmitting data over wireless networks.

The chips use a portion of the radio spectrum that can carry more data at faster speeds, IBM said.

That could make them useful for sending high-definition video from a DVD player to a television or downloading digital photos through a wireless connection, the company said.

Several electronics companies are considering whether to use the chips in their products, but the company did not name

The worldwide WiFi VoIP phone market jumped 76% to reach $102.5 million in revenue this year, according to a report by Infonetics.

The market is projected to more than double in the next year, as enterprises continue to deploy VoIP. By 2009, the phone revenue should hit $1.9 billion. Roughly two-thirds of WiFi phone revenue came from single-mode WiFi VoIP handsets in 2005, and 1/3 from dual-mode handsets. By 2009, dual-mode handsets are predicted to make up threee-quarters of total revenue. The

LONDON — Quorum Systems, Inc., TTPCom Ltd and Analog Devices Inc. have collaborated on a GSM/Voice-over-Wi-Fi dual-mode handset reference design.

Dubbed the Sereno UM-1 and housed in a small form-factor clam-shell design, the reference design incorporates Quorum’s QS2000 single-chip bulk-CMOS multi-mode transceiver, ADI’s Blackfin SoftFone EDGE chipset and TTPCom’s protocol stack and architecture.

The companies suggest phones that support Wi-Fi and cellular will become one of the fastest growing market segments, and would reach over 100 million units by 2010.
