chipmaker Sequans is teaming up with Sumitomo Electric Networks to develop an "ultra small CPE" called the SWiM WS2000/2001.

Suminet is targeting the home security, M2M, and automotive markets with the new device, which will be used for video applications, remote-controlled cameras, home controllers, and tracking devices for the home market, and in-car navigation, remote diagnostics, and security for the automotive market.

Suminet's SWiM WS2000 is an embedded module,  which is 2.7 cm  by 4.3 cm  by 0.6cm and SWiM WS2001 is a standalone module which is 10.8cm by 4.0cm by 2.6cm. They include both an Ethernet PHY and USB 2.0 interface and a complete networking software suite. Takashi Suzuki, director, Suminet said the technology has enabled us to build a state-of-the art solution with very high performance, providing unique value for our particular applications," said  "Sequans offers the most advanced and powerful WiMAX chip solutions available today.

Sequans recently introduced its new generation of 65 nm chips that integrate baseband and triple band RF in a single die. Based on state-of-the-art 65 nm technology and five years of Sequans proven field experience, the chips deliver the highest level of integration yet achieved, resulting in dramatically reduced cost, power consumption and size.

Sequans technology delivers maximum throughput of greater than 40 Mbps with extremely low power consumption of less than 350 mW in active mode (with fully loaded MIMO traffic) and less than 0.5 mW in standby. The integrated RF covers all three global WiMAX bands, 2.3, 2.5, and 3.5 GHz and supports both TDD and H-FDD. All of Sequans' mobile station solutions support 2 Tx and uplink MIMO, a feature unique to Sequans that can nearly double cell coverage.

No word on when anything is going to hit the shops.
