November 2011:- Altair Semiconductor, a leading developer of 4G LTE modem chipsets and baseband processors, has developed FourGee-3100/6200 3GPP LTE chipset that supports LTE throughputs in excess of 100Mbps/50Mbps Download/Upload respectively. FourGee-3100/6200 3GPP LTE chipsets are now being used in AsiaTelco’s 4G LTE Mobile Hotspot product, named ALM-F190. AsiaTelco is a leading supplier of 4G products, including LTE USB dongles, wireless data modules and indoor and outdoor CPEs, covering several frequency bands.

Long Term Evolution (LTE) LogoThe FourGee-3100/6200 is a 3GPP LTE chipset that implements a high performance MIMO receiver and is based on a proprietary O²P Software Defined Radio (SDR) processor, offering performance which significantly exceeds traditional communications DSP cores, yet consumes a fraction of the power. The FourGee-3100/6200 supports both FDD and TDD variants using single software, and covers any LTE frequency band in the range between 700-2700MHz. The combined chipset offers terminal manufacturers a true global solution. Altair Semiconductor successfully demonstrated its LTE Chipset speeds and service for China Mobile Executives in November 2011.

ALM-F190 is the first 4G LTE Mobile Hotspot product designed for both TDD-LTE and FDD-LTE, capable of delivering 100Mbps downlink and 50Mbps uplink. The product enables users to experience applications such as high-definition video streaming, online gaming and high speed Internet browsing using multiple connected WiFi devices over a single 4G LTE connection. The product features long usage and standby times.
