Sequans Powers New AAEON WiMAX Tablet For KDDI In Japan

4G chipmaker Sequans Communications S.A. (NYSE: SQNS) announced that it is the provider of the WiMAX chip inside the new AAEON (an Asus company) TOUGH tablet PC recently unveiled by KDDI. The TOUGH business tablet, which recently became available to KDDI customers, is dual-mode, WiMAX and EVDO, incorporating AAEON’s advanced technology, Google’s Android 3.2 (Honeycomb) operating system and featuring a seven-inch display. The tablet is dust, water, and impact-resistant, suitable for the tough business environment. AAEON, an Asus company, is a leading manufacturer of industrial PCs.

“AAEON has delivered a powerful WiMAX tablet and we are very pleased to collaborate with them on this project,” said Georges Karam, Sequans CEO. “The TOUGH tablet gives KDDI customers super high speed internet access with a beautiful display in a strong and sleek package.”

“We chose to integrate Sequans’ WiMAX chip in the TOUGH tablet because of Sequans’ excellent track record in WiMAX semiconductor technology,” said Dr. I.J. Lee, vice chairman, AAEON. “Sequans is inside some of the world’s leading WiMAX devices and Sequans’ chip is highly optimized for mobile tablets and handsets.”

The WiMAX chip inside the AAEON TOUGH tablet is Sequans’ SQN1210, one of the most highly integrated semiconductor solutions in the industry. The SQN1210 delivers baseband and triple band RF integrated in a single, 65 nm die for ultra low power consumption and ultra high performance at a very low cost. These innovations enable users to enjoy faster web browsing and smoother streaming media playback. The chip also features Sequans’ patented dual transmit uplink technology, a technology pioneered by Sequans that can greatly improve coverage and performance.

The TOUGH tablet is the third Sequans-powered WiMAX device to launch on KDDI’s network.
