San Jose, CA. and Eindhoven, Netherlands. -- February 7 , 2008
-- SeaSolve Software Inc., a leading US-based IP Core and T&M provider in the RF and wireless domain and Silicon Hive B.V., a company known for their expertise in programmable parallel processing technology for consumer electronics markets, announced a strategic partnership. The two companies are jointly developing a MIMO WiMAX solution using Silicon Hive’s programmable HiveFlex CSP processor core.
“The WiMAX solution consists of a programmable baseband with MIMO support. The most important advantage of this solution is the flexibility it will provide to users over hardwired solutions. The reconfigurable solution, a result of our WIMAX expertise combined with the high performance HiveFlex CSP processor cores will enhance performance and increase efficiency, thereby reducing time-to-market for products aiming to conform to evolving standards like Mobile WiMAX and MIMO” said SeaSolve CTO Mehraj Lanker.
“We’re excited about working with SeaSolve Software as they have tremendous WiMax systems and application domain knowledge. Together we plan on introducing a flexible drop in vertical solution that will rival any hardwired products in the marketplace now. The programmable solution will help semiconductor and OEM customers manage the risks associated with testing, certifying and introducing WiMax products around the world,” said Dr. Geoff Burns, VP Product Management Silicon Hive.
