Israel’s Altair Semiconductor, a developer of high-performance, single-mode LTE chipsets, announced that its FourGee-3800/6300 Category 4 chipset has successfully achieved Verizon Wireless chipset certification. The certification means that Altair’s customers can get their products to the market faster by integrating the chipset into their devices, reducing the amount of testing required pre-launch.

Altair Semiconductor produces high-performance, single-mode LTE chipsets. The company boasts that by focusing 100% on LTE solutions, Altair enables the introduction of competitively priced connected devices to the market. The company’s chips have been qualified by the world’s top LTE carriers. More than 30 original design manufacturers around the world have selected Altair to connect more than 80 end-user devices such as tablets, netbooks, USB dongles, portable hotspots, fixed routers and modems, and M2M applications

The FourGee-3800/6300 is the successor of the Category 3 FourGee-3100/6200 chipset, which Altair says it has shipped in millions of devices to date, including the Verizon Ellipsis 7 tablet, the HP Chromebook 11″ LTE, and the ASUS Chromebook 13.3″ LTE.

“This Verizon Wireless certification of our newest chipset is an important milestone in our market expansion strategy, ” said Eran Eshed, Co-Founder and Vice President of Marketing and Business Development at Altair Semiconductor. “It provides our existing customers a smooth migration path to faster and more advanced LTE technology, maintaining the level of maturity and ease of integration they are accustomed to.”

Altair states that its FourGee-3800/6300 chipset features state of the art modem performance with download speeds of 150Mbps and upload speeds of 50Mbps, and supports advanced features such as VoLTE and eMBMS. The chipset is already designed into multiple modules and end user devices and is deployed commercially in leading carrier markets.

Verizon Wireless operates the world’s largest 4G LTE wireless network, available in more than 500 U.S. markets. It is the latest carrier to certify this chipset, joining leading carriers in Japan, Europe, India, and other key markets, Altair declared.
