Wavesat, a supplier of Broadband Wireless semiconductor products, will launch its Odyssey 9000 family of LTE chipsets at 4G World in Chicago.

The first LTE chipset features Cat-3 performance (100Mb/s downlink, 50Mb/s uplink) for mobile devices including USB dongles, data cards, mobile handsets and MIDs.

The Odyssey 9000 is a highly integrated SOC with industry beating performance and power consumption, along with a highly flexible and programmable architecture to easily adapt to LTE’s evolving requirements.

Wavesat’s award winning multi-protocol architecture also allows the Odyssey 9000 to support 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 (150Mb/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.

Wavesat is exhibiting at the 4G World show in Chicago (booth 717) and senior executives are participating this week at LTE events in Hong Kong (LTE Asia) and Amsterdam (LTE Focus).
