Qualcomm announced it will be offering Femtocell Station Modem chipsets--the indsutry's first to utilize 3GPP HSPA+ and CDMA2000, including 1X and EVDO Rev. A. and Rev. B.

Qualcomm Incorporated announced that it has added 3G femtocell chipsets to its product roadmap. The Company will be offering Femtocell Station Modem™ (FSM™) chipsets that will be the industry's first to utilize the broadband speeds of 3GPP HSPA+, in addition to utilizing CDMA2000®, including 1X and EVDO Rev. A and Rev. B. The chipsets will include baseband functions, network listen and integrated RF capabilities for all major wireless bands. The chipsets also will feature innovative techniques addressing the issue of interference between femtocells and the macro network. Sampling is currently scheduled for the second quarter of 2010.

“Femtocell technology holds great promise for the mobile industry by delivering better 3G coverage to subscribers and increasing data throughput,” said Ed Knapp, senior vice president of marketing for Qualcomm Flarion Technologies. “Femtocell technology will enhance the overall experience for end users while operators will benefit from the enhanced capacity femtocells will provide. Qualcomm is combining its industry leadership in silicon integration and power-efficiency with its mobile device and base station chipset experience to now add FSM chipsets to its technology roadmap.”

Femtocells are cellular access points that use DSL, fiber or cable broadband connections to extend the reach of cellular service within a small area. Qualcomm will offer FSM chipsets for both residential and enterprise applications to its OEM customers. Extensive performance analysis, simulations and field tests indicate the issue of interference can be effectively addressed with the Company's interference mitigation techniques. More details on these techniques are available on the Femto Forum's website at
