Fujitsu Microelectronics America, Inc. (FMA) will feature its WiMAX reference
design kit at the WiMAX World Conference and Exposition 2005 at Boston's Seaport
Hotel and World Trade Center, October 26 through 28.
FMA will demonstrate a base station communicating with a subscriber station,
featuring data communications, web browsing, video streaming, and file transfer
(using FTP) over systems built using the industry-leading Fujitsu WiMAX SoC, the
Fujitsu introduced its WiMAX reference design kit and WiMAX SoC in April
2005. The design kit incorporates all the necessary hardware and software
features required for designers to time-efficiently develop WiMAX-compliant base
station and subscriber station equipment, according to George Wu, director of
marketing for Fujitsu Microelectronics America.
"The deployment schedule for technology and systems based on the WiMAX
standard is on track, with significant progress in product development,
compliance testing, and early-stage trials," he said. "Our
proof-of-concept reference design kit provides system designers with all the
tools and capabilities they need to move quickly and efficiently to the
The WiMAX World Conference and Exposition will feature the largest exhibition

New Application Note from Fujitsu Designed for Multi-sector Base Station
Fujitsu also is issuing a new application note to assist equipment
manufacturers who are working with the MB87M3400. Entitled "Design of a
Multi-sector Base Station Using the Fujitsu WiMAX SoC," the application
note defines the basic requirements for a base station that can serve multiple
cell sites, with details about how to build one using the Fujitsu WiMAX SoC
reference board design. The document also includes information on Fujitsu's TDD
and FDD mode reference designs for base stations.
