Fujitsu Microelectronics Europe (FME) will exhibit its WiMAX devices, demonstrate its WiMAX solutions and unveil its WiMAX SoC roadmap on Stand 2.1C50 at the 2007 3GSM World Congress in Barcelona next month.

The 3GSM World Congress is one of the biggest mobile technology exhibitions in the world attracting over 50,000 visitors during the four days and is uniquely fully endorsed by the GSM Association. Fujitsu is one of the founding and board members of the WiMAX Forum and will use the event to showcase its highly integrated one-chip MAC and PHY mixed-signal baseband SoC, designed to optimise performance and power consumption using 90nm low-leakage process technology, and well suited for PC cards and mobile devices.

Visitors to the Fujitsu stand at 3GSM will enjoy the very first public demonstration of its mobile WiMAX SoC targeting WiMAX Forum Wave 2 certification, showing how it is possible to enjoy all the advantages of home broadband, particularly video, via mobile multimedia applications.

The demonstration will show how video clips stored in the server are sent as a stream to the PC via the prototype Fujitsu mobile basestation with the baseband SoC used in a mobile station.

This mobile WiMAX SoC fully complies with IEEE802.16e-2005, and incorporates highly integrated, scalable1024 FFT OFDMA PHY and full MAC processors; adaptive modulation schemes including 64QAM, 16QAM, QPSK and BPSK; interface for MIMO RF modules, in a small-footprint FBGA package.

Engineering samples will be available Q1 2007.

Systems using the SoC will be submitted to the WiMAX Forum for certification in Q3 2007.

Fujitsu's Product Roadmap of WiMAX devices will match customers' needs.

Its initial release will provide the broadband SoC to deliver MIMO Wave 2 certification compliance.

Members of Fujitsu's technical, marketing and sales-support teams from Japan, Europe, China and the USA will be available on the stand to answer questions.
