PCCHIPS Uses SiS761GX as The Core of Its A31G Motherboard

SiS announced today that SiS761GX will be used in another motherboard PCCHIPS A31G.

PCCHIPS applies SiS761GX and SiS965L as the Northbridge and Southbridge chipsets of the A31G motherboard. As you already know, SiS761FX offers Mirage 1 Graphic Engine (there's a graphics PCI Express interface as well). SiS965L, in its turn, provides 2 x SATA ports with 150MB/sec data transmission rate, 2 PCI Express x1 ports, 8 x USB 2.0, and AC'97 audio.

Agilent Releases First Signal Creation Capability For WiMAX

Agilent announced the first release of signal creation capability for mobile WiMAX and WiBro applications. WiMAX is intended to make point-to-multipoint broadband network access widely available without the expense and distance limitations associated with wired options. WiBro is a broadband wireless Internet service for the Korean market, based on the 802.16e standard.

Agilent N7615A Signal Studio for 802.16 OFDMA software creates waveforms that comply with the WirelessMAN-OFDMA physical layer in the IEEE 802.16-2004, 802.16-2004/Cor1/D2 or D3, and 802.16e/D9 standards. Its ability to create downlink or uplink subframes in TDD or FDD makes it suitable for engineers testing base station and subscriber station equipment.

The software's intuitive GUI grants engineers convenient access to the physical and basic MAC layer parameters, including bandwidth, cyclic prefix ratio (G), sampling factor (n), Fast Fourier Transform (FFT) size (512, 1024 or 2048) and frame length.

Using the software's frame setup parameters, engineers can generate high peak-to-average power ratio downlink or uplink signals to test transmission chain components, such as amplifiers. Generating signals for receiver test is simplified with automatic generation of correct FCH, DL-MAP and UL-MAP data.

The Agilent N7615A Signal Studio for 802.16 OFDMA can create up to 16 incrementally numbered frames per waveform and can configure frames for downlink, uplink or both. A flexible frame configuration provides for zone and burst allocations. Supported zone types include DL-PUSC, DL-FUSC, UL-PUSC and UL-OPUSC. The software can control signal generator functions remotely through the user interface.

The Agilent N7615A Signal Studio for 802.16 OFDMA is available now at a starting price of $7,500. A free, 14-day trial license of the software can be downloaded at www.agilent.com/find/signalstudio.
