Fujitsu Microelectronics announced its Mobile WiMAX System-on-Chip (SoC) solution and roadmap at the Annual Wireless Communications Association Conference 2006. This highly integrated one-chip MAC and PHY mixed signal baseband SoC is designed to optimize both performance and power consumption using Fujitsu’s 90nm process technology, and is especially well-suited for PC cards and mobile devices. The Fujitsu mobile WiMAX SoC is fully compliant with the IEEE 802.16e-2005 Mobile WiMAX standard.
“As the broadband wireless market continues to gain momentum, we’ll see fixed and mobile WiMAX networks co-exist throughout the world,” said Keith Horn, senior vice president of sales and marketing for Fujitsu Microelectronics America. “To continue the effort from fixed to mobility, Fujitsu has developed a highly integrated baseband processor for mobile WiMAX applications. We believe the time is now right to open a new window of opportunity for our systems customers and new prospects in the WiMAX mobility market.”
Fujitsu has built a worldwide base of WiMAX systems customers for its powerful fixed broadband wireless SoC, as well as a growing deployment footprint. Its delivery has been on time, on target and on specification. Continue>>
