San Jose, CA --December 11, 2008
- SeaSolve Software Inc
, a leading supplier of wireless IP cores, Test and Measurement solutions, and Sandbridge Technologies
, a fabless semiconductor company providing advanced reprogrammable processors for wireless OEM’s, announced a joint development effort to build cost effective and highly integrated mobile WiMAX (802.16e) based products.
The mobile WiMAX development effort leverages SeaSolve’s IP Cores (IEEE 802.16e PHY and MAC IP) and Sandbridge’s SB3500 reprogrammable baseband processor to allow manufacturers to design highly integrated and cost effective devices such as WiMAX enabled Smart phones and CPE’s for a multiplicity of target markets.
“We are very excited to be partnering with Sandbridge on this new reference platform which reduces the design effort and time our customers need to bring high performance, cost effective, state-of-the-art WiMAX solutions to market.” said Mehraj Lanker, CTO SeaSolve Software Inc.
The SeaSolve/Sandbridge design departs radically from traditional fixed-function hardware designs, that require multiple processors to support mobile communication standards and applications such as, mobile WiMAX, VoIP, and multimedia codecs, etc., increasing the size, cost and power consumption of devices. The Sandbridge/SeaSolve reference design produces a single chip, low cost, low power solution that substantively reduces product development effort and time to market, while enabling complete flexibility and programmability. The solution combines SeaSolve’s mobile WiMAX PHY and MAC IP cores on Sandbridge’s SB3500 board for a complete CPE reference design.
“Leveraging the ease of programmability of the SB3500 and integration of SeaSolve’s mobile WiMAX software enables us to provide a fully compliant reference design solution to customers,” said Tanuj Raja, Vice President of Business Development for the company. “We are excited to have SeaSolve as a partner for our mobile WiMAX solution; the partnership combines SeaSolve’s software expertise with our processor to produce a truly unique and highly optimized solution.
