Fujitsu offers chip similar to Intel, hot on its heels: In the wake of Intel’s announcement that it has WiMax chips ready to hit manufacturers, Fujitsu’s news shows the market is finally starting to roll over the big hump of silicon. Certification is still months away, but at least there will be multiple chip vendors in the market, a general requirement for interoperability testing and certification of new networking standards like Wi-Fi and Bluetooth.
Fujitsu is claiming a higher level of integration in their chips than Intel offers, and WirelessNewsFactor agrees. Aperto will use both chipsets, however. The chip can be configured for either base station or consumer premises equipment use.
