Press release; Meiling Chen, DIGITIMES [Monday 14 September 2009]
VIA Technologies has announced the availability of the new VIA eNote turnkey solution, a thin and light notebook that adopts Sequans Communications' mobile WIMAX chip and strikes the balance between netbook ultra-portability and notebook performance and functionality.
The mobile WiMAX chip provided by Sequans delivers high throughput with low power consumption using Sequans mimoMAX technology, which combines a maximum likelihood decoder on the downlink with two transmitters (2Tx) on the uplink - a unique feature that can significantly improve link budget and greatly enhance coverage and capacity.
"The VIA eNote Turnkey Solution incorporates all the features one would expect in an ultra mobile product, plus all the connectivity options that users need to experience truly high speed connectivity anywhere they go," said Georges Karam, Sequans CEO.
The 11.6-inch design incorporates both WiMAX and Wi-Fi connectivity, will be demonstrated from September 15-18 at 4G World in Chicago in Sequans' booth, number 423.
