Amtel Rolling out Wimax Chipset

Amtel is releasing a single-chip WiMAX transceiver for mass production in 2Q 2006. It works only with WaveSat’s baseband, but another version compatible with industry-standard baseband is in the works. Power consumption is not optimized and it’s therefore intended only for fixed equipment. However, they are working on a miniPCI version.

It will be interesting to see if the solutions coming out later are adopted by Taiwanese broadband equipment makers.
