TD-LTE chipset to be ready for China Mobile large-scale trial


WiththecomingdeploymentofChinaMobileTDLTElargescaletrial network,moreandmoreterminalchipsetvendorsspeeduptheirproduct developmentplanstocatchupwithotherlinksinTDLTEindustrychain. Qualcomm,theworldslargestfabless semiconductorproducerandthe largestwirelessproviderofchipset,hasjustprovideditsfirstTDLTEUSB dongle(FFA)basedonMDM9200withbandwidthof10MHz.MIMOspatial multiplexingfunctionwasalsoimplementedinthisFFA.Thephotobelow demonstratedhighdefinitionvideowall(simultaneous24videostreams ) withtheQualcommUSBdongle. Duringthesameperiod,AltairhasalsoreleaseditsfirstTDLTE/LTEFDDdata cardbasedonFourGeeTM 3100,which iscurrentlyunderverification. Sequans hascompletedthe2ndtapeout andachievedmorestableTDLTE basebandchipsetcomparedwiththefirstversion.
