TARRYTOWN, N.Y., Dec. 11 /PRNewswire/ -- Sandbridge Technologies, a cutting edge fabless semiconductor company developing multimode baseband/multimedia processors for low-cost advanced mobile devices, announced today that it has signed agreements with independent 4G software developers, mimoOn and 4M Wireless for LTE solutions, and Seasolve for its mobile WiMAX solution. Under the agreements the software solutions will be available for integration on Sandbridge's Sandblaster®-based SB3500 platform, taking full advantage of its reprogrammability, and flexibility.
"Partnerships with independent software companies demonstrate the ease of programmability and robustness of the Sandblaster® integrated development environment and enables us to build an ecosystem of third party software around the SB3500 platform," said Tanuj Raja, VP business development for the company. We are now positioned to offer fully compliant, comprehensive 4G and legacy solutions to OEM's developing advanced multimode, multifunction devices."
Sandbridge Technologies' 4G capable, dynamically reprogrammable, SB3500 multimode baseband processor, signifies the beginning of a new era that will transition wireless devices from the rigid limitations of fixed function hardware, to a flexible software-based architecture similar to PC's. Based on Sandbridge's proprietary multi-threaded Sandblaster® architecture, the SB3500 boasts more than 30 Gmacs of re-usable compute power to easily support broadband data transfer rates specified by the LTE and mobile WiMAX protocols, as well as legacy 3G and 2G systems. Further, the SB3500 is uniquely capable of performing uninterrupted, switchable operations - to deliver complete user profiles for voice, broadband, Bluetooth, GPS and mp3 or video simultaneously.
The software-based design of the SB3500 represents a true paradigm shift for the mobile industry - a future proof platform that will accelerate the cost efficient development of ultra-mobile-devices with the capacity for operating any and all 4G and legacy communications protocols, as well as all multimedia applications. For OEMs and carriers, this means significant cost and time-to-market reductions. For consumers, it means Smartphones at mass market pricing.
