Fabless firm PicoChip Ltd has teamed up with MIMO design services provider Systems4Silicon Ltd for PHY chip support.

Systems4Silicon has worked on HSDPA/HSUPA, WiMAX and 802.11n Wi-Fi. Two areas of particular expertise are MIMO and PA linearization with adaptive predistortionboth critical for the sophisticated air-interfaces such as 802.16m and 3G-LTE.

PicoChip delivers reference designs for HSDPA, upgradeable to HSUPA and WiMAX/WiBro (both 802.16d and 802.16e, with support for MIMO). Systems4Silicon is experienced in interpreting complex systems such as HSPA and WiMAX 802.16e.

"Their understanding of these standards, together with comprehensive knowledge of our architecture, enables Systems4Silicon to offer clear time-to-market advantages to our customers," said Guillaume d'Eyssautier, CEO and president at PicoChip, in a statement.
