Small and efficient WiMAX

Altair Semiconductors have developed what they claim is the world’s smallest and most power-efficient mobile WiMAX processor. The ALT2150 uses 142mW for a 1Mbps FTP upload, 125mW for a Streaming H.264 video, 81mW – VoIP call and 98mW in standby mode which is about half the power that is used by the competition. The chip implements full Wave-2 physical and Media Access Control (MAC) functionality. Altair’s product strategy exclusively focuses on battery operated devices and this is the reason for its excellent efficiency. Check out their webpage for more information.
