Motorola To Develop Mobile WiMax Chipsets

MANHASSET, N.Y. — Motorola Inc. has announced a strategic initiative to develop mobile WiMax chipsets for the company's next-generation WiMax devices.

Motorola's initial chipset will focus on core 802.16e mobile WiMax functionality supporting voice, video, and data for low power mobile applications in handsets and modules. These first chipsets are scheduled to support commercial Motorola WiMax devices in 2008 for carriers in North America, Japan and around the world including Sprint and others.

Motorola is working with its silicon vendors on the overall fabrication of the chipsets.
