Wavesat Introduces Smallest Package for WiMAX Chip: Evolutive'TM' WiMAX DM256 BGA Package Targets Mini-PCI and PCMCIA Applications

MONTREAL—(BUSINESS WIRE)—June 29, 2005— Wavesat, a leading developer of WiMAX silicon, introduces a 208 pin BGA (ball grid array) package option for its Evolutive(TM) WiMAX DM256 Family of Products, the smallest package currently available for 802.16-2004 compliant chips. The DM256 BGA package significantly reduces area size, providing OEM's & ODM's with an ideal WiMAX tool for small form-factor applications.

The small (15 x 15mm) DM256 BGA package, also available lead-free, offers the same low power consumption as the plastic quad package, but reduces the circuit board mounting space by 75 percent.. The DM256 BGA packaging is designed to be the ideal solution for a wide variety of power and space constrained WiMAX applications that require modular, small size and high reliability form-factors, such as mini-PCI and PCMCIA.

"With the smallest footprint in the marketplace, the DM256 BGA package sets the stage for our customers to offer next generation WiMAX solutions using mini-PCI and PCMCIA formats," said Vijay Dube, VP Marketing and Business Development. "These compact platforms will lead the way to low cost subscriber units by offering flexibility, reducing NRE costs and shortening time to market."
