Four Million WiMax Chipsets To Ship This Year
|19 ноября 2009|
New research predicts that WiMax chipset shipments will hit four million by the year’s end. Currently, there are fourteen WiMax chipset manufacturers targeting the market.
Adlane Fellah, Maravedis CEO said “ With only fourteen WiMax chipset manufacturers this will put some pressure on manufacturers with insufficient customer traction, lacking funding or scale, or offering only partial chipset solutions”
The new research from Reveal Wireless and Maravedis was released recently. For more details about the report see foot of page.
The key players which entered the WiMax market early on having fixed or Wave1 WiMax mobile devices are in a position to ship Wave2 compliant WiMax chipsets which consist of a companion RF transceiver IC and a base band chip.
“However, most of the available chipsets are not highly optimized because they were compelled to cover a broad range of application segments,” noted Pascal Deriot, Senior Analyst and co-author of the report.
“We believe that WiMAX mass market adoption requires ubiquitous coverage and IOT mature, sub US$10 chipsets that are power and performance optimized for each application-specific segment,” he added.
Report Summary Findings
The WiMAX market is not large enough to support 14 chipset vendors. Consolidations, exits and transitions toward LTE are expected in the next two years.
Three chipset vendors are best positioned to achieve the $10 price target through base-band and RF monolithic die integration in 65-nm.
Mixed process technologies and packaging approach have been launched in 2009, from monolithic solutions to System-In-Package implementations to save cost and space.
Shipments of mobile WiMAX chipsets will reach 4 million by the end of 2009 according to the latest research by Maravedis, who in partnership with Reveal Wireless released its new report “WiMAX Wave2 Subscriber Station Chipset Vendors Competitive Analysis.”
