|MiTAC Technology Chooses the Fujitsu WiMAX SoC to Design and
Manufacture Cost-Efficient WiMAX Customer Premise Equipment|
Washington, D.C. — Fujitsu
Microelectronics America, Inc. (FMA) and MiTAC Technology Corporation (MTC) announced that MiTAC will use the
Fujitsu WiMAX System-on-Chip (SoC) to develop and manufacture MiTAC's WiMAX Customer Premise Equipment (CPE).
Fujitsu has shipped its WiMAX SoCs, the MB87M3400, to MiTAC to incorporate them into MiTAC's CPEs.
MB87M3400 uses an OFDM 256 (Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing) PHY that supports all the available channel
bandwidths from 1.75MHz to 20MHz, and can operate in TDD or FDD mode. A programmable frequency selection function
generates the sample clock for any desirable bandwidth. When implementing the 64QAM modulation in a 20MHz channel
and using all 192 sub-carriers, the SoC's data rate can potentially go up to 75Mbps. Uplink sub-channelization is
The Fujitsu WiMAX SoC incorporates sophisticated processing power, including a
powerful main RISC engine that implements the 802.16 upper-layer MAC functions, scheduler, drivers, protocol stacks,
and user application software. A secondary RISC/DSP functions as a co-processor, which executes the lower-layer MAC
functions, offloading processing from the upper-layer MAC and enhancing the total SoC performance. A multi-channel
DMA controller handles high-speed transactions among agents on a high-performance bus.
is a recognized leader in wireless communication, and this WiMAX SoC is the industry's most integrated, modular and
cost-efficient solution," said Joseph Huang, general manager of MiTAC USA (L.A). "We will use the Fujitsu WiMAX SoC
and customize the WiMAX solution by adding the features required to meet various market needs."
"MiTAC is a world leader in the electronics manufacturing industry, having strong design and cost-efficient
manufacturing capabilities. We are confident that MiTAC's efficiency and expertise will bring the cost down to make
WiMAX CPEs more affordable and available," said Keith Horn, senior vice president of Fujitsu Microelectronics
America. "Our collaboration with MiTAC will help produce products that fully utilize the performance-driven Fujitsu
