DesignArt Networks Announces Fully Integrated WiMAX Femtocell SoC

CHICAGO—(BUSINESS WIRE)—September 22, 2008— DesignArt Networks (DAN), a fabless semiconductor company, unveils the DAN2200 WiMAX femtocell SoC at WiMAX World 2008. The industrys only complete single-chip femtocell SoC, the DAN2200 allows equipment vendors to shatter the unit price barrier of $100. Complete femtocell designs consume less than 5W of total power, while providing plenty of spare processing power to run embedded high-capacity networking and media streaming applications; they can easily be integrated with home gateway equipment to facilitate the delivery of high-definition media to fixed and mobile wireless broadband devices. This results in faster adoption of WiMAX femtocells in residential, business, and hot-spot applications.

The $100 price point has been an elusive target for femtocell vendors, inhibiting mobile operators to effectively implement subsidized business models to serve the demand for indoor wireless broadband coverage, said Adlane Fellah, CEO and Founder, Maravedis. The DesignArt SoC platform integrates several application CPUs, a network processor, and robust synchronization options, thus eliminating costly components required for Femtocell and Home Gateway applications. The resulting low design costs could accelerate deployment of affordable femtocells into small businesses and residential homes alike, added Fellah.

Certified for IEEE 802.16e Wave 2, the DAN2200 delivers non-blocking WiMAX performance for up to 25 simultaneous subscribers. The DAN2200 is the second SoC in a family of WiMAX infrastructure products from DesignArt Networks. Based on the companys open 4G SoC platform, the software-centric multi-core architecture features many advanced and patented capabilities, including plug-and-play installation, robust embedded synchronization options and fully automated installation and operation of WiMAX femtocell clusters.

The industry is really gearing up for extensive deployment of femtocells in mobile broadband networks, said Oz Barak, CEO of DesignArt Networks. But the lack of cost-effective solutions is slowing down initial adoption cycles. Our DAN2200 SoC is specifically designed to accelerate this process, overcoming critical barriers regarding cost, size and power consumption of WiMAX femtocells. Based on the DAN open 4G SoC architecture, the DAN2200 enables deployment of dense femtocell clusters, providing advanced self-organizing network mechanisms, generally eliminating interference between femtocells, as well as with the outdoor RAN infrastructure. Femtocell reference designs are available today, and we expect production shipment of the DAN2200 in the first quarter of 2009.
