Comsys Communication and Signal Processing's reference designs for converged cellular and mobile WiMAX terminals include full integration of communication and application chipsets, with the company's ecosystem partners
Each of the platforms is built around Comsys' ComMAX multimode baseband processors.
The first is a modular platform that gives developers the flexibility to utilize the full capabilities of the ComMAX processor by integration with various RF and application processors.
The second provides a rapid development with a fully operational multimode mobile WiMAX/cellular reference design solution.
Both platforms offer complete hardware and software integration, including the capability for the handset vendor to use a single reference design platform to operate with Bluetooth, WiFi and GPS modules.
This integration includes compatibility with a number of the world's leading vendors of WiMAX RF, GSM/EDGE RF, application processor, memory and software applications for mobile terminals, who participate as partners in the ComMAX Ecosystem.
"By providing these platforms we enable our customers to focus on their handset differentiation, as well go fast to the market while saving design, integration and certification costs," said Comsys product manager Avi Sharon. "We invite chipset and software vendors for handset and mobile terminal to join our ComMAX Ecosystem."
The ComMAX chipset is a flexible multimode OFDMA baseband processor that enables service continuity between cellular and Mobile WiMAX (IEEE 802.16e) networks. It is fully compliant with WiMAX Forum Wave 2 requirements.
