Fujitsu to exhibit at WiMAX Forum Global Congress 2008


Come and meet Fujitsu on Stand 3.47

Langen, Germany,May 2008 — Fujitsu Microelectronics Europe (FME) will showcase its range of WiMAX™ solutions on Stand 3.47 at the WiMAX Forum Global Congress, 17-18 June 2008, RAI, Amsterdam.

FME’s WiMAX offerings include silicon for fixed WiMAX base stations and CPEs, low power, high-performance mobile terminal solutions as well as femto/pico base stations for mobile WiMAX networks.

The company‘s latest mobile WiMAX solution, the MB86K21, supports full MIMO matrix B and mandatory Wave 2-compliant features. These are part of a large-scale programme dedicated to WiMAX that provides customers with a clear vision of future-proof products. The MB86K21 is a highly integrated baseband SoC that utilises Fujitsu’s leading low-leakage process technology well-suited for PC cards and other media-rich mobile applications.

The mobile WiMAX SoC incorporates highly integrated scalable1024 FFT OFDMA PHY and full MAC processors; adaptive modulation schemes including 64QAM, 16QAM and QPSK; and an interface for MIMO RF modules, in a small-footprint FBGA package. System development Kits for the MB86K21, and PC card reference design kits are also available.

Other key features of the device include:

Support for 5MHz and 10MHz channel bandwidths
Security implementation based on AES-CCM
Antenna diversity support
USB 2.0 and card bus/PCI host interface support
Complete reference design with software and radio solution
Dual RISC processors for implementing upper and lower MAC layers
IEEE 802.16e-2005 compliance
Fujitsu’s new WiMAX Dual-Band USB Dongle reference design will also be featured on the stand. This brings together FME’s Mobile WiMAX system development kit, its MB86K21-SK1 SoC and Infineon’s WiMAX RF Transceiver SMARTi™ WiMAX. Fujitsu’s recently announced co-operation with Infineon gives its Mobile WiMAX™ customers the option to address the 3.5GHz-licensed band up to 3.8GHz, in addition to the 2.5GHz band. This means that the vast majority of all licensed bands worldwide can be supported with one highly integrated and flexible front-end.

The WiMAX Dual-Band USB Dongle reference design connects to Fujitsu’s base-band interface, which is fully MIMO-compliant. It supports hand-over within both bands and has a performance of up to and beyond 20Mbit/s. The reference kit will include all the appropriate software and tools, Gerber files, schematics and BOM. Fujistu will also assist customers with the development of their own commercial products based on this reference design.
