    IEEE802.16 "WiMAX" Software Reference Designs

    The industry-standard for WiMAX infrastructure. picoChip’s WiMAX architecture is used by more OEMs and more carriers than any other, including the “golden modem” for WiMAX certification. The solution scales from femtocells through microcells to sophisticated multi-sector basestations, with full support for mobility, MIMO and beam-forming. What’s more, it is completely software upgradeable, from certified 16d to 16e, Wave 2 and MIMO — and with a roadmap to 16j and 16m.

    Because picoChip’s Reference Designs are fully-tested, fully-integrated, system-level solutions which implement the complete WiMAX PHY, customers using them benefit from dramatically accelerated time-to-market and reduced development cost. The dramatic performance advantages of the picoArray over conventional architectures means these systems also have reduced bill-of-materials and lower power dissipation.

    picoChip-developed algorithms meet or exceed all the performance requirements of the IEEE802.16 standard in static, multipath and co-channel interference conditions for all modulation schemes. This increased performance translates directly into increased range, more coverage and better network economics for carriers. (More details).

    picoChip's compelling PC8520 PHY solution is widely deployed in systems that have achieved certification. The software upgrade to support OFDMA (16e-2005) is sampling now and will be amongst the first solutions to enter WiMAX interoperability testing.

    picoChip is committed to supporting the standards roadmap and providing customers with a seamless upgrade path to new capabilities, including AAS, MIMO and .16j mobile relay.

    16j: Mobile Relay

    802.16J is a task group, looking at relay station architecture for OFDMA 802.16e-2005 based systems. This will enable small cell coverage beyond the initial macro-cell deployment, and to specify the architecture such that the price and complexity of relay stations is greatly reduced. The standard is expected to be ratified in the 2nd half of 2007 clearing the way for standardized equipment to be deployed.

    picoChip is developing a reference design for 802.16j.

    16m: Next Generation

    IEEE has recently approved the PAR for 802.16m, extending the WiMAX architecture for even higher data-rates as a 4G system.

    The performance of the picoChip architecture makes it ideally suited to this application.
