Fujitsu Microelectronics Asia Pte Ltd announced that Fujitsu Microelectronics America Inc. (FMA) is now shipping its 5.8GHz WiMAX baseband SoC to ODM partners and customers worldwide.

The Fujitsu SoC, which supports 2-11GHz frequencies in both licensed and unlicensed bands, is now being used in the industry's first commercially available fixed WiMAX CPE supporting the 5.8GHz band.

"Shipping these market-leading WiMAX SoCs in the 5.8GHz bands to one of the strongest fleets of customers in the industry continues to fulfill our commitment to deliver innovation and momentum to the fixed WiMAX access markets worldwide," said George Wu, director of marketing, FMA. "We look forward to customer adoption and network deployments that can serve millions of underserved subscribers in North and South America, as well as all markets where our partners deliver BWA/WiMAX systems, service and support."

At present, Texas Instruments, Orza Networks and Sun Create Electronics Co. Ltd have used the Fujitsu SoC in their networking solutions.
