ALLENTOWN, Pa., June 1 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ --

Agere Systems (NYSE: AGR - News) today announced that it will provide a new, advanced system-on-a-chip (SoC) chip set to manufacturers of SIRIUS radios. Agere's announcement coincides with next week's Computex conference and exhibition in Taiwan.
SIRIUS products that will use this new Agere SoC include satellite radio receivers used in automotive, home, portable and navigation applications. These receivers are scheduled for delivery to consumers next year.

Compared with previous-generation technology, Agere's chip set features significant SoC integration, feature enhancements and size reduction. The chip set also offers lower power consumption, improved audio performance and other features.

"Demand for SIRIUS products and programming is growing rapidly," said Jim Meyer, president of operations and sales for SIRIUS. "Agere continues to be a valued supplier, as we introduce new and innovative features in our next-generation products that, we believe, will attract additional subscribers."
