Japan's WILLCOM names 4G chipset supplier

04 Jun 2008

Israel's Altair Semiconductor will supply Japan's WILLCOM with wireless chipsets for wireless devices running on the fourth-generation XG-PHS mobile standard.

Altair will supply its ALTx150 series ultra-low power and high performance chipsets to WILLCOM's partner handset and device makers for the latter's XG-PHS-based Personal Handyphone System.

WILLCOM, one of only two licensees of 2.5GHz mobile broadband spectrum in Japan, will deploy its next generation PHS network using

(OFDMA) technology.

XG-PHS is touted to achieve higher capacity and lower cost per bit compared to traditional 3 and 3.5G cellular technologies.

Altair's XG-PHS chipset for WILLCOM will be distributed through its

agent in Japan, Internix Inc.
