South Korean developer of WiMAX products POSDATA has licensed IP from Silicon Hive for the design of a baseband chip that will be embedded in mobile WiMAX terminal chips.

POSDATA is using the Dutch company's AVISPA-CH1 processor IP for the development. Silicon Hive, a subsidiary of Royal Philips Electronics, is a specialist in IP for programmable embedded signal processor technology targeted at media and mobile communications products.

The AVISPA-CH1 processor, which is optimized for OFDM applications, will form the core of the South Korean group's range of mobile WiMAX chips.

POSDATA plans to release the SoC, dubbed the PSSM1001, during the second half of this year. In February, the company signed a Memorandum of Understanding with ReignCom for the mobile WiMAX chip, and is in negotiations with other terminal manufacturers worldwide to deploy the device.

The PSSM1001 SoC is said to minimize battery power consumption, while also using software-based design for flexibility. The company says the chip would support diverse application profiles and a wide range of user terminals of mobile WiMAX.
