Communications S.A was incorporated under the laws of the French Republic on October 7, 2003. The Company is a fabless designer, developer and supplier of 4G semiconductor solutions for wireless broadband applications. The Company’s solutions incorporate baseband processor and RF transceiver ICs along with our proprietary signal processing techniques, algorithms and software stacks. The Company’s high performance ICs deliver high throughput, low latency, strong signal reach, low power consumption and high reliability in a small form factor and at a low cost. The Company’s solutions serve as the core wireless broadband communications platform in these devices, including smartphones; USB dongles; portable routers; embedded wireless modems for laptops, netbooks, tablets, and other consumer multimedia and industrial devices; consumer premises equipment, or CPE, such as residential gateways; and basestations. The Company’s semiconductor solutions support the two commonly accepted wireless broadband 4G protocols, Worldwide Interoperability for Microwave Access, or WiMAX, and Long-Term Evolution, or LTE. The Company’s products have been deployed by many wireless carriers worldwide, including 7 of the 10 largest WiMAX carriers globally by number of subscribers according to BWA Research UK. The Company’s LTE solutions are currently in trials with wireless carriers in the United States and China, where China Mobile has successfully demonstrated its LTE capabilities using its solution at the World Expo in Shanghai and at the Asian Games in Guangzhou, which were both held in 2010. The Company’s solutions are incorporated into devices sold by many original equipment manufacturers, or OEMs, and original design manufacturers, or ODMs, including HTC, Huawei, MitraStar Technology (a spin-off of Zyxel), Gemtek, Sagemcom, Teltonika, Accton Wireless Broadband and ZTE. It has developed a portfolio of 4G semiconductor solutions to address a variety of applications and market segments. It offers baseband solutions used to encode and decode data based on 4G protocols that serve as the core wireless processing platform for a 4G device; RF transceivers used to transmit and receive wireless transmissions; and highly integrated SoC and SiP solutions that combine these and other functions into a single die or package. The Company’s SoC solutions integrate the baseband and RF transceiver functions, in some cases with an applications processor and memory. This advanced integration reduces the size, cost, design complexity and power consumption of the 4G solution. The Company’s SiP solutions incorporate additional components that are typically required to build a wireless device, including the radio front-end and power management components from third party suppliers, and integrates them along with its SoC into a single package.
