Wavesat has announced that Compal Communications Inc. has selected Wavesat to co-develop products for its mobile WiMAX product line, starting with a USB dongle. The collaboration between the two companies will leverage Wavesat's multimode Odyssey 8500 4G broadband chipset, providing access to multiple broadband wireless technologies including WiMAX Wave2, XG-PHS, Wi-Fi and seamless migration to LTE.

The Odyssey 8500 chipset from Wavesat employs a 4G multicore architecture incorporating multiple ultralow power DSPs. The SOC manufactured using advanced Embedded DRAM technology requires no external memory, thus saving customers valuable real estate, cost and power consumption for very small form-factor portable and mobile applications such as wireless USB dongle, mobile handsets and other consumer electronic devices, says Wavesat.

"We are pleased to be working with Wavesat to deliver WiMAX Wave 2 solutions with advanced functionality and low power consumption", said Marketson Ma, chief product manager for Compal Communications. "Wavesat's multimode architecture meets our goals for being the leader in providing innovative 4G broadband wireless terminal solutions to the market".

"Compal Communications is a company that can turn innovations into wireless reality very rapidly and we are extremely happy to have been chosen as a Mobile WiMAX technology partner and chipset supplier," said Raj Singh, president and CEO for Wavesat. "Our Odyssey family of products offers unique multimode capabilities which can easily be adapted to support today's broadband wireless technologies, and offer a seamless migration path to future 4G standards."
