SAN MATEO, Calif. -- Wavesat Inc., a leading supplier of Broadband Wireless semiconductor solutions, today announced that Alpha Networks of Hsinchu, ROC has sampled the Odyssey 9010, the first in Wavesat’s “9000” series of LTE chipsets, and has selected it for inclusion in a forthcoming line of USB dongles, CPEs (consumer premises equipment), and other consumer broadband devices.

Wavesat’s award winning multi-protocol architecture allows the Odyssey 9010 to support multiple 4G technologies, including LTE and WiMAX, on the same silicon. One of the first LTE chipsets to feature CAT-3 performance (100 Mb/s downlink, 50 Mb/s uplink) for mobile devices including USB dongles, data cards, mobile handsets and MIDs, the Odyssey 9010 is a highly integrated SOC with industry leading performance and low power consumption that also features a highly flexible and programmable architecture capable of easy adaptation to LTE’s evolving requirements.

The Odyssey 9010 presents an innovative approach to 4G solutions and has been sampling since 4Q 2009. This exciting new chipset supports both FDD and TDD duplex schemes and comes complete with an LTE protocol stack including MAC, RLC, PDCP, RRC and NAS layers, as well as reference design kits for manufacturing dongles and CPE.

“We are very excited by the latest milestone in the market penetration of the Odyssey 9010, the next generation of multi-protocol baseband processors,” said Raj Singh, President and CEO of Wavesat. “We have had exceptional take-up from OEMs as well as carriers for this product and are seeing significant demand for both trials and deployment."
