Complete reference platform provides unparalleled performance & integration reducing costs and time to market for handset manufacturersMarch 25, 2009 -- Herzliya, Israel and Las Vegas
– Comsys Communication & Signal Processing Ltd. has announced the launch of their latest ComMAX™ reference design platform, the CM1125RD - an optimized multimode mobile WiMAX/GSM EDGE smartphone reference design platform. Based on the ComMAX CM1125 baseband processor and integrating market-leading solutions from Comsys Mobile's Ecosystem partners, it incorporates all the features and functionalities required of smartphones, from antennae up to application processor.
OEM/ODMs can now receive a complete pre-integrated form-factor solution enabling maximum optimization and reduced time to market.
In addition to multimode mobile WiMAX/GSM-EDGE, the CM1125RD integrates WLAN, BT, FM radio and GPS connectivity, enabling coexistence of radios for all usage scenarios. The solution complies with WiMAX Forum mobile WiMAX requirements and 3GPP GSM/EDGE standards, and supports multimode mobile WiMAX/GSM-EDGE voice call continuity between WiMAX VoIP and GSM CS voice based on a standard IMS platform.
CM1125RD comes with a dedicated debug support unit incorporating Comsys Mobile's proprietary testing software toolset including the CMon™ & SoCLogger Acquirer™ applications - for easing certification, IOT and WiMAX/GSM-EDGE field trial testing of clients' manufactured devices.
"With numerous real network rollouts of WiMAX technology this year, the availability of dual mode devices will be very important," said Randall Schwartz, Principal Consultant of Wireless 20/20. "Not only operators with both GSM and WiMAX operations, but WiMAX operators in countries with significant GSM coverage will need dual mode devices to provide advanced data and voice services in both their initial coverage areas and traditional coverage areas. The Comsys solution has the performance and long battery life to enable interesting form factors for end user devices."
Comsys Mobile's Director for WiMAX Product Marketing, Ehud Reshef, stated: "Comsys Mobile is committed to providing a complete solution around the ComMAX line of baseband processors. CM1125RD is the latest in a series of platforms developed for OEM/ODMs, following our ComMAX Evaluation Board and ExpressCard/34 reference design. The platform will facilitate OEM/ODMs efforts in meeting the market's increasing demands for handsets and smartphones supporting mobile WiMAX/GSM-EDGE."
CM1125RD will be presented at Comsys Mobile booth #5750-E in WiMAX Pavilion, CTIA Las Vegas, on April 1-3. About Comsys Mobile
