GCT Semiconductor’s mobile WiMAX single chip powers Yota’s portable WiMAX/WiFi router

To enables users connect to WiMAX network without USB dongle

By CBR Staff Writer

GCT Semiconductor said that Yota Egg, a portable WiMAX/WiFi router launched by Yota, is powered by its mobile WiMAX 2.5GHz wave 2 single-chip GDM7205. Yota Egg, manufactured by Korea-based Interbro, allows users of WiFi-enabled devices such as notebooks, iPhones and VoIP phones, to connect to a WiMAX network instantly, without the use of a WiMAX USB dongle or modem.

The company claims that the GCT’s offering provides an integrated, low-power transceiver which minimises the number of external RF front-end components, simplifying PCB design complexity.

Based on CMOS technology, the single-chip satisfies the demands of multimedia data processing and wireless connectivity, and increases battery life for the longest run time, the company claims.

Igor Torgov, sales director of Yota, said: “The stylish and compact Yota Egg allows users to instantly connect via Wi-Fi to our Yota Mobile WiMAX network which is available in Moscow, St. Petersburg and Ufa. Working closely with GCT and Interbro, we were able to develop this small high-performance router, which is easy to use and carry, and includes a separate power source.”
