Next Steps in WiMAX Development to be the Focus of Standards Panel Presentation on April 6

Fujitsu Semiconductor America Inc.

Sunnyvale, CA, March 29, 2006

Fujitsu Microelectronics America, Inc. (FMA) will feature its new product and technologies including its 8-bit and 32-bit microcontrollers, FlexRay™ ASSPs, 1394 evaluation boards, biometric sensor ICs and graphics display controllers at the annual Embedded Systems Conference in San Jose April 3-7.

Fujitsu will also present an update on its leading-edge WiMAX™ technology, focused on the next steps in the development, certification, and implementation of WiMAX base-station and subscriber-station systems. Reza Golshan, director of System ASIC Development at FMA, will speak on the future of WiMAX at the Wi-Fi and WiMAX Standards Updates Panel session on Thursday, April 6, from 3:30 to 5:30 p.m.

At booth 1618, Fujitsu will introduce the latest in its F²MC family of low-power, high-speed MCUs for the consumer electronics and appliance markets. The MCUs include the 8-bit MB95F146 for power supply and remote-control A/V device management, and the MB95F156H for portable devices and household equipment such as air conditioners. Fujitsu will also demonstrate the latest FR series 32-bit RISC MCUs, including the MB91F479 for household appliances that require energy efficiency and low-noise operation. In addition, Fujitsu is announcing that the popular µC/OS-II real-time operating system from Micrium has been ported to the Fujitsu MB9140x family of 32-bit network security ICs.

New MCUs, GDCs, FlexRay Development Kit for the Automotive Industry

The company will showcase new products developed for the automotive market, including the following:

  • The newly announced two-dimensional graphics display controller, the MB86276, targeted to meet the needs of North American automotive suppliers, with OS support from industry leaders;
  • Fujitsu’s innovative FlexRay ASSP board, designed to assist companies who are beginning product development using the FlexRay communications protocol;
  • A new development kit built for customers designing in-vehicle entertainment systems based on the industry’s first IDB-1394b IC single-chip solution, which Fujitsu introduced in late 2005.

Two of Fujitsu’s fingerprint sensor ICs will be demonstrated at the conference: the MBF200 USB single- touch sensor for physical access applications, and the MBF310 Sweep Sensor, which delivers very high resolution for computer and peripheral applications. Fujitsu’s easily integrated biometric sensor ICs feature ultra-low-power operation and advanced algorithms that support product development.
