SoCs Promote WiMAX Adoption

Debuting as the company's first system-on-chip (SoC) devices, the SQN1010 and SQN2010 target WiMAX subscriber station and basestation designers, respectively. Both devices are based on the IEEE 802.16-2004 standard and are said to enable equipment manufacturers to build high-performance, cost-effective, standards-based broadband wireless access systems. Space-time coding, diversity combining, full sub-channelization and automatic repeat request are a few of the features built into the SoCs to enable the deployment of low power pico-base stations and self-install terminals. They support full duplex frequency division duplexing and channel widths up to 28 MHz. Both employ S-Cube, an 802.16 software stack that includes hardware drivers, all MAC and scheduling functions for WiMAX certification, and application software. SEQUANS COMMUNICATIONS, Cupertino, CA.
