Spreadtrum TD-LTE Modem To Ship In Hisense Datacard









SHANGHAI, Nov. 27, 2012 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Spreadtrum Communications, Inc. (NASDAQ: SPRD; "Spreadtrum" or the "Company"), a leading fabless semiconductor provider in China with advanced technology in 2G, 3G and 4G wireless communications standards, today announced that its single-chip multi-mode TD-LTE modem, the SC9610, will be shipping in a Hisense datacard that was awarded a portion of China Mobile's recent 4G procurement tender.

Hisense's datacard is designed with Spreadtrum's 40nm single-chip TD-LTE modem, the SC9610, and SR3500 RF transceiver, and operates in TD-LTE, TD-SCDMA and GSM mode. The device supports UE category 3 as well as the ZUC encryption algorithm, a requirement for devices shipping in China.  

"We are pleased to work with Hisense on TD-LTE devices as China Mobile increases the scale of its TD-LTE infrastructure rollout and testing in the coming year," said Dr. Leo Li, president and CEO of Spreadtrum. "Our deep experience and market leadership in TD-SCDMA products combined with early participation in China's 4G network evolution positions Spreadtrum well for growth within the China 3G and 4G ecosystem."  

TD-LTE or "Time-Division Long-Term Evolution" is a 4G standard and the evolution path from 3G TD-SCDMA for China Mobile, China's largest domestic operator with more than 700 million subscribers as of October 2012. TD-LTE products are required to be backward compatible with TD-SCDMA. Hisense was one of several vendors that China Mobile recently selected in its first phase of 4G procurement to collectively supply close to 35,000 TD-LTE terminal devices. "We expect the 4G terminals of Hisense to do well," said Mr. Qingya Lu, vice manager of Hisense.

Hisense's 4G terminals are designed to address the increasing data and network speed demand resulting from the popularization of multimedia application on wireless terminals, such as HD video, music and a large variety of interactive applications. Hisense recently demonstrated its TD-LTE datacard at the Shenzhen Hi-Tech Fair, where the device received the "Outstanding Product Award."
