Wavesat Odyssey 9000 Family of LTE Chipset

The Wavesat Odyssey 9000 family of LTE chipsets features CAT-3 performance (100 Mb/s downlink, 50 Mb/s uplink) for mobile devices including USB dongles, data cards, mobile handsets, and MIDs. The Odyssey 9000 is a highly integrated SOC with excellent performance and power consumption, along with a highly flexible and programmable architecture to easily adapt to LTE’s evolving requirements. The Odyssey 9000 supports other 4G technologies including WiMAX and Japan’s XGP standard.

The Odyssey 9000 family of chipsets incorporates a unique hybrid architecture with a combination of highly efficient DSPs and hardware acceleration blocks, easily scaling to support CAT-4 (150 Mb/s downlink) devices. The first LTE baseband processor in the Odyssey 9000 family, the OD9010, will sample in October 2009, and will come complete with an LTE protocol stack including MAC, RLC, PDCP, RRC and NAS layers, as well as a ready to manufacture reference design. A follow-on dual-mode chip, the OD9050, is scheduled to sample by mid-2010 and will offer both 3G and LTE on the same chipset.
