Altair Semiconductor (News - Alert) and Yota Devices have entered a new strategic partnership, under which Yota Devices is using Altair's FourGee technology to power the new generation of Yota Devices’ USB dongle that will be deployed on Yota Russia’s LTE (News - Alert) network.
It’s a win-win for both companies.
Altair Semiconductor is a developer of ultra-low power, small footprint and high-performance 4G LTE chipsets. Altair’s chipsets can be found in approximately 30 end-user devices – from USB dongles to smartphones.
This versatile chipset also covers any LTE frequency band between 700-2700MHz. The company also offers baseband processors, multi-band RF transceivers for both FDD and TDD bands, and a range of reference hardware and product level protocol stack software.
Yota Devices is a Russian company that has sold three million connectivity devices since 2009, including modems and routers, and has 6 percent of the global LTE devices market. The company launched its first modem, the Yota Egg in 2009.
“We are excited to help Yota Devices deliver innovative and ultra-fast wireless broadband devices to their fast-growing customer base,” said Eran Eshed, cofounder and VP of Marketing at Altair Semiconductor. “We look forward to continue working closely with Yota Devices as they introduce new and innovative LTE products to the market.”
Yota Devices’ USB dongle devices are designed to support on-the-go and home-based Internet connectivity over LTE Wireless Broadband Networks. These also feature an Altair-based modem that works in up to two LTE Frequency bands: the 800MHz Digital Dividend and the 2600MHz FDD frequency bands.
The modem runs on Altair’s FourGee-3100/6202 chipset, which supports LTE throughputs of 100Mbps/50Mbps on both FDD and TDD variants, using a single software platform.
The versatile chipset covers any LTE frequency band between 700-2700MHz.
