WinHDP 802.16e base station development platform from Wintegra

Wintegra Inc. recently introduced a complete fixed and mobile 802.16e upper and lower MAC with integrated network interface and transport functions, and announced it is now shipping the WinHDP 802.16e base station development platform to WiMAX customers.

The WinHDP development platform provides direct connectivity between the Wintegra MAC and picoChip PHY, and RF and antenna subsystems, which together create a demonstrable WiMAX base station that has successfully interoperated with multiple CPE solutions, the company said.

Fully tested software and vendor independent APIs are available for rapid system integration of these components, as well as optional licensing of tools and source code for OEMs to customize and differentiate their systems. This platform is modular and scalable, and is capable of supporting any base station size from pico-cell to multisector, multiprotocol macro base station designs. WinHDP gives OEMs the capability to realize the benefits of reduced time to market as well as field upgradeability, Wintegra said.

The 802.16e MAC is a full featured and fully programmable lower and upper MAC implementation that supports both mobile and fixed WiMAX operation. Key features include: FDD and TDD mode support; Point-to-Multipoint topology; multizone support; support for 512 subscribers; numerous queues per connection; and enhanced statistics support.

Wintegra said the MAC is highly modular and flexible, allowing rapid adaptation to standards changes as well as integration of proprietary customer modules and features. The code is fully integrated with Wintegra production quality wireless data path software packages, all of which can run on the WinHDP and are shipping to customers worldwide.
