BARCELONA, Spain, March 2, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- MOBILE WORLD CONGRESS -- Imagination Technologies (IMG.L) announces that its MIPS CPU IP cores continue to gain traction in LTE devices through the latest designs from 4G chipmaker Sequans Communications. MIPS CPUs are at the heart of Sequans' new Colibri and Calliope platforms for the LTE-enabled Internet of Things (IoT). In addition, Sequans' chipsets and modules with MIPS inside are finding their way into an increasing number of end products.
Recent Sequans wins include the following new products, all certified for the Verizon Wireless network:
Says Craig Miller, VP worldwide marketing, Sequans: "We use MIPS in many of our LTE chipset platforms. With significant differentiators like hardware multi-threading, MIPS enables Sequans to provide a range of LTE solutions, from the world's first Cat 1 Calliope platform for IoT, to our highest performing Cassiopeia Cat 6 LTE-Advanced platform. As LTE finds its way into a huge range of new types of devices, companies are looking to Sequans' pre-integrated, pre-tested, and pre-certified MIPS-based LTE platforms and modules to significantly reduce development risk and time."
Says Tony King-Smith, EVP marketing, Imagination: "We're proud of our long-standing collaboration with Sequans in LTE. Using unique MIPS features such as hardware multi-threading has helped Sequans create innovative platforms that are gaining traction in the market, illustrating the competitive advantages of the MIPS architecture. With its new Calliope and Colibri IoT platforms, as well as its other chipsets and modules, Sequans is driving our high-performance, power-efficient MIPS CPUs into an exciting new generation of LTE solutions."
Sequans uses a range of MIPS CPUs across its existing product line. Sequans' StreamliteLTE and StreamrichLTE chipset solutions all use MIPS CPUs running Sequans' carrier-proven LTE protocol stack:
In addition, Sequans leverages MIPS CPUs in its EZLinkLTE family of all-in-one LTE connectivity modules, which are designed to significantly reduce development cost and time by giving device makers plug-and-play LTE connectivity solutions. This includes the VZ20Q for consumer electronics and M2M devices, the VZ20M for notebooks, laptops, tablets and other portable computers, and the VZ21M for designs with GPS capability – all of which are certified by Verizon.
