picoChip expands presence in USA with opening of Boston office

6 June 2006 -- picoChip announced today that it is expanding its technical support network with the establishment of a new office in Boston, Massachusetts. The company already has a Sales Office in San Jose, California, and the new Boston office will act as a technical support center for North America. picoChip’s multicore DSP has established it as the leading architecture for WiMAX infrastructure (16d upgradeable to 16e), and a key supplier to the emerging segment of HSDPA femtocells.

“North America is continuing to play a pivotal role in the development of our customer base. picoChip’s East Coast technical center will balance our sales efforts by providing technical support on new opportunities as well as dedicated local support for existing customers on both WiMAX and 3G,” commented Tom McQuade, VP Sales North America.

“We’re hiring a small team of engineers to help us work with customers in North America. This will allow us to work closely with individual customers taking our reference designs to market and helping them to achieve the best results with picoChip’s advanced development environment. We are proud of the depth of expertise delivered by our support team, and being in the same region is a clear advantage. Our customers have already responded very positively to the new office, which they see as confirming picoChip’s commitment to providing them with the best support possible,” concluded McQuade.

picoChip provides software defined radio solutions to the key challenges of cost, development time and flexibility for the next generation of wireless systems. The company’s multi-core processors deliver a world-beating price/performance combination. Uniquely, the company also delivers complete, standard-compliant reference designs for UMTS (HSDPA, upgradeable to HSUPA) and WiMAX/WiBRO (both 802.16d and 802.16e, with support for AAS and MIMO). WiMAX systems using picoChip are available from Airspan, Intel, Ericsson, Nortel, Marconi and a number of other manufacturers. picoChip technology is also being used to develop other advanced wireless protocols such as UMTS-LTE, 802.20 and TD-SCDMA, and in 4G research.
