Guillaume d'Eyssautier, President and CEO of picoChip, commented, "We see Asia as a region of major importance to picoChip's global development strategy, and we are very pleased to be able to appoint someone who possesses such a wealth of knowledge and experience in sales and marketing into the wireless comms industry in Asia as Steve clearly does."
Steve Lu has a BS in Computer Science and Electrical Engineering from Tsinghua University, Beijing, China, and also holds MS degrees from both Tsinghua University and New York University, USA, and a MBA from MIT Sloan School of Management, USA. He has held a variety of senior management posts in the telecom and wireless industries in the USA and Asia, including Lucent Technologies and Agere Systems.
picoChip has developed the world's highest performance DSP tuned for wireless, and is a supplier of complete reference designs for WiMAX and HSDPA. It recently announced the launch of the first commercially available WiMAX basestations (Airspan Networks' AS.MAX family) using its technology, and the company has secured more than ten design wins with key strategic players, including Tier One manufacturers. picoChip is fast becoming the industry standard for next-generation wireless infrastructure.
picoChip, located in Bath, England, is dedicated to providing innovative, flexible wireless solutions to help equipment makers minimize time-to-market, costs, and system power consumption.
The heart of the company's offering is a scaleable, multi-processor baseband IC that combines the computational density of a dedicated ASIC with the programmability of a traditional high end Digital Signal Processor. This radically reduces both development time and materials cost and enables the strategic goal of the "Software Defined Radio". The company has the most comprehensive reference designs in the industry, with complete, standard-compliant solutions for both UMTS (including HSDPA) and WiMAX (802.16d upgradeable to 802.16e).
