Applied Wave Research Inc. (AWR) recently announced a Mobile WiMAX solution for the company's Visual System Simulator (VSS) design suite. The software meets the specification defined in the wireless metropolitan area network (WirelessMAN) orthogonal frequency-division multiple access (OFDMA) PHY of the IEEE 802.16e air interface for fixed and mobile broadband wireless access systems standard. In addition, it complements the IEEE 802.16d WirelessMAN-OFDM PHY fixed-wireless capability previously released by AWR.

The VSS Mobile WiMAX technology enables radio-frequency and baseband SoC designers, component suppliers, original equipment manufacturers, user equipment companies, and infrastructure and network equipment providers to design and verify WiMAX-certified products. The software contains all bit-level processing defined in the 802.16e specifications, as well as the receiver functionality and the ability to incorporate circuit and RF interactions.

"The VSS WiMAX solution enables engineers to capture the specifications and accurately simulate their designs to ensure they meet the conformance tests specified in the 802.16 standard," said Dr. George Chrisikos, engineering director of systems development at AWR.

A beta version of the VSS Mobile WiMAX software is available immediately and full production release of the software is available Q1 2007.
