Altair Semiconductor (www.altair-semi.com), a developer of high performance, single-mode LTE chipsets, announced the launch ofa new family of chipsets, which includes two new baseband processors – the FourGee™-3800 and FourGee™-3802 – and a new radio chip – the FourGee™-6300.
Anite, a global leader in wireless testing technology, announced that, by working in close collaboration with leading chipset manufacturers, it has achieved peak data rates with commercial devices for LTE-Advanced (LTE-A) carrier aggregation.
ABI Research finds that Mediatek has delivered the world’s smallest multimode transceiver. Coming just a week after Qualcomm announced its intentions to produce RF front ends for high tier LTE smartphones, Mediatek releases the world’s smallest RF transceiver which is also the world’s first 40 nm transceiver.
Azimuth Systems Inc., a provider of automated, real-world mobile performance test solutions, announced the availability of AzMapper 2.5, the latest version of its mapping and analysis application for real world performance testing. AzMapper, a critical component of Azimuth’s Field-to-Lab™ solution, enables raw data collected with drive test scanners to be thoroughly analyzed and used to recreate that same radio environment through intelligent mapping of the logged field conditions to the available lab testbed.
Linear Technology Corp. introduces the LTC4290/LTC4271 isolated 8-port power source equipment (PSE) controller chipset designed for use in IEEE 802.3at (PoE+) Type 1- and Type 2-compliant Power-over-Ethernet (PoE) systems. The LTC4290/4271 provides 8 independent PSE channels for simpler lower component count designs, reduced board space and ultimately reduced total solution costs.
The use of Wi-Fi functionality in small-cell base stations will be a game changer for cellphone service providers, easing heavily congested data pipes while linking together billions of devices into a single network architecture, according to the IHS iSuppli Mobile & Wireless Communications Service at information and analytics provider IHS.
