Telephony takes a look at Fujitsu’s WiMax chip: I’m not totally sure why the magazine is running this news story now when Fujitsu introduced the chip about a month ago. Regardless, the story offers some good details about the chip, including that it includes its own Media Access Control and a radio that can be tuned anywhere between 1.75 MHz and 20 MHz. The chip incorporates a wide range of capabilities, which Fujitsu thinks may allow a wider range of companies to enter the WiMax market. Aperto and Terabeam are two companies that say they’ll use the chips.

I think that the statement that the chip has "...a radio that can be tuned anywhere between 1.75 and 20MHz..." could be a little confusing. The chip itself (I believe) is capable of generating different WiMax signals that are 1.75-20MHz wide, and the 'radio' hardware is external to the chip itself.
