WiMAX Chip Availability - Wavesat

 Wavesat and Atmel to develop compatible WiMAX chipset solution

Baseband and RF Chips Will Simplify WiMAX System Developments

Montreal, Canada – May 3, 2005 -

Wavesat Inc., a leading developer of WiMAX silicon, and Atmel Corporation (Nasdaq: ATML), a worldwide leader in the development, fabrication and sale of advanced semiconductors, announced they are leveraging their current manufacturing relationship of the world’s first WiMAX compliant PHY to develop compatible Baseband and RF chips for the 802.16 market as early as Q4/ 2005.

This proactive teamwork agreement for a WiMAX chipset will feature Wavesat’s EvolutiveTM DM256 WiMAX baseband ASIC and Atmel’s WiMAX compliant radio. Atmel’s radio, under development now, will have variants covering the 2.5/3.5 GHz licensed bands. These two chips are designed to interface seamlessly with Wavesat’s PHY solution to simplify WiMAX system designs by providing a fully compatible WiMAX solution that includes the PHY layer as well as the radio transceiver.

“This Wavesat/Atmel WiMAX chipset solution is a clear advantage,” said Jeff Leasure, Marketing Manager for Atmel’s WiMAX radio solutions. “Our customers will benefit from a low risk, low-cost, fast time to market and high performance solution based on years of baseband and radio expertise. By creating a variant of our WiMAX compliant radio architecture to specifically interface with the Wavesat baseband solution, we can simplify system communication issues in a reference design.”

“The decision to move forward with greater technical and marketing collaboration with Atmel will provide additional tools, for both our organizations, to better serve our customers and considerably lower their systems costs,” said Michel Guay, President and CEO of Wavesat. “Our customers will have access to a complete chipset solution as well as Wavesat’s user-friendly development platform and support.”
