Fujitsu Microelectronics America Inc. (FMA), Fujitsu Microelectronics Europe (FME) and Hopling Technologies have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) on the mutual goal of enabling faster and smoother integration of the WiMAX baseband SoC into a Linux-based wireless equipment environment.

Under the terms of the agreement, Hopling and Fujitsu will utilize Hopling's Linux software expertise and Fujitsu's WiMAX reference design kit to create a Linux-based Hopling board support package, which will help accelerate deployment of Linux-based WiMAX solutions among equipment manufacturers.

The Hopling board support package is designed to streamline the WiMAX development process and reduce costs for equipment manufacturers. And since it is Linux based, added the companies, the board support package will make it easier for equipment manufacturers to add innovative applications to the standards-based Fujitsu solution.

"This collaboration will provide excellent software and hardware for equipment manufacturers, and allow a smoother transition to Linux-based systems for all parties," said Hopling CEO Frank Koopman in a statement.

Hopling and Fujitsu plan ongoing, comprehensive support for current and future WiMAX standards, as the WiMAX Forum and its member companies work to deliver IEEE 802.16e to serve mobile wireless broadband applications.
