Posted by JenThorpe at 11:20 PM on February 17, 2013

AltairAltair Semiconductor is a start up company that is based in Israel, near Tel Aviv. The company has been around for seven years, and has offices around the world. They develop LTE single mode chipsets. The market is quickly moving towards LTE, and Altair Semiconductor is ready to meet that need.

The LTE chipsets made by Altair Semiconductor are in phones right now. They are the first LTE chipsets to be certified by Verizon for use on the Verizon network, and are in the process of certifying with AT&T as well. Altair also makes LTE chipsets that can be used in tablets and LTE USB dongles. Their “sweet spot” is in MTM applications, where a machine communicates directly with another machine and needs to send data from one to the other. Altair Semiconductor has products that are available in the USA, Europe, Asia, and India.

Altair Semiconductor Powers 4G and LTE

Posted by Andrew at 10:43 PM on February 4, 2012

Altair Semiconductor logoThe Altair Semiconductor Company specialises in 4G and LTE wireless chipsets for the mobile telecoms industry. Andy and Courtney chat to the CEO of Altair to find out more more about the transition to the latest wireless standards.

4G, LTE and mobile broadband were all key technologies at CES this year, with products incorporating 4G announced from Motorola, Samsung, Nokia and LG, to name but a few. When compared to the relatively slow penetration of 3G, 4G uptake is happening much faster and it’s even surprising the industry. Verizon is expected to have most of the USA covered by the end of 2012. China and India are not far behind with major deployments.

Tablets and smartphones are driving the market but Altair’s chipsets are included in 4G dongles, MiFi-type units and wireless broadband routers.
