About Optimum Semiconductor
With headquarter in Tarrytown, NY, and Asian operation in Wuxi, China, Optimum Semiconductor Technologies (OST) is a fabless semiconductor company, aiming to deliver ubiquitous wireless connectivity at the highest-integration level and lowest-cost.
To support its product design, OST is building a large scale of engineering team which includes product reference design group, hardware engineering group, application and software group, and software tool group. In Feb. 2010, while Optimum Semiconductor licensed Sandbridge's advantage technologies, it also retained 2/3 of previous Sandbridge engineering team, who are veterans of IBM, Philips and Lucent.
OST's mission is to develop radically innovative baseband processor that is a flexible alternative to dedicated hardware for next generation, multi-mode mobile handsets. Optimum Semiconductor’s unique solution will start a prolific new era of innovation benefiting the entire mobile ecosystem by delivering unprecedented compute performance that will accelerate the creation and distribution of pioneering mobile features and applications with low power consumption.
Optimum Semiconductor’s core technology is a revolutionary multi-threaded DSP architecture with the capacity to perform flexible baseband processing for all wireless protocols including LTE and WiMAX–as well as all multimedia functions–without compromising battery consumption.
For mobile handset designers, Optimum Semiconductor’s processors offer the ability to develop the communication software, and creating unique multi-mode combinations for specific geographic markets in parallel with the hardware design to optimize the development cycles while reducing cost, complexity and time-to-market. In addition, Optimum Semiconductor’s processors are ideal for development of communication devices such as USB dongles, CPE’s and Femto-stations where cost, low power and high compute performance are necessary.
