Taiwanese PC maker ASUS has unveiled notebooks equipped with mobile Wimax chips from GCT Semiconductor.
GCT's GDM7205 Wimax single-chip are integrated into ASUS F8 notebook series and EeePC mobile Internet device.
Based on CMOS RF technologies, GDM7205 implements MIMO, and all PHY and MAC features required for Wimax Forum Wave 2 Certification.
The chip contains a highly integrated, low-power transceiver which minimizes the number of external RF front-end components.
It also includes a mobile Wimax baseband with high performance dual-processors, and an array of peripherals for connectivity, according to GCT.
The notebooks are being demonstrated at the ongoing Wimax Expo in Taipei.
