KT, picoChip Team Up for Development of WiBro / WiMAX Access Points
July 28, 2006
Korea's WiBro (Wireless Broadband) operator KT has signed a partnership agreement with picoChip to develop WiBro/WiMAX access points based on picoChip's multi-core DSP (Digital Signal Processor) architecture. Also called femtocells, picoChip's small, low-cost WiMAX basestations can be installed in residential or corporate environments where coverage is otherwise limited. KT and picoChip's joint development will focus on picoChip's newly introduced PC20x range of signal processors.
