Altair Semiconductor Breaks TD-LTE Speed Record

HOD HASHARON, ISRAEL -- Altair Semiconductor (www.altair-semi.com), the world's leading developer of ultra-low power, small footprint and high performance 4G LTE chipsets, announced today that its TD-LTE chipset, integrated in a commercial USB dongle, achieved download speeds of more than 100Mbps in a live over-the-air demonstration.

This achievement means the promise of LTE – that the user experience will be enhanced significantly by providing fast download times and data-intensive applications – is now a reality.

"We are very proud of this achievement, which allows our customers to strongly differentiate their products in the market," said Eran Eshed, Co-Founder and VP of Marketing and Business Development at Altair Semiconductor. "It is important to understand that this figure is achievable on any of the tens of thousands of Altair-based commercial terminals in the market, in most practical TD-LTE field deployment scenarios globally. This unique capability substantially upgrades the service offerings of TDD carriers and allows them to offer similar user experiences as FDD carriers."
