Mobile World Congress 2012, BARCELONA, SPAIN: Seowon Intech, a Korean manufacturer of consumer electronics devices, has produced three LTE end user devices based on Sequans’ new generation LTE semiconductor solutions.
The three new devices – a USB modem, an indoor CPE, and a mobile router – are based on Sequans’ SQN3120 baseband SOC and SQN3140 RFIC. The new Seowon devices combine all the benefits of Sequans’ SQN3120 chip, including high LTE throughput and low power consumption, with Seowon’s unique design elements, resulting in highly functional LTE end user devices.
“We used Sequans’ LTE chips for these new products because they are very efficient and compact,” said JY Kim, CEO, Seowon Intech. “We were able to add LTE connectivity to these new devices quickly and cost-effectively.”
Sequans’ SQN3120 is the baseband plus applications processor chipset at the heart of Sequans’ second generation LTE platform, Mont Blanc, which is specifically optimized for the design of hostless USB modems, CPE, and mobile routers or hotspots. SQN3140 is Sequans’ companion RF chip that operates in the TDD LTE bands, 38, 40, 41, 42, and 43, and combines with the SQN3120 to provide a total baseband plus RF LTE solution. Mont Blanc comprises baseband and RF chips supporting global FDD and/or TDD LTE networks, reference designs, and comprehensive software for a truly universal LTE semiconductor solution.
