IP from Dorfour Ltd. enables maximum likelihood performance at 4X efficiency

PARIS, France and CUPERTINO, Calif. — December 29, 2009 — Sequans Communications has licensed unique LTE IP from Dorfour Ltd., a Tel-Aviv-based 4G IC company. The IP enables maximum likelihood performance at four times the efficiency in size and power consumption of competing solutions, contributing a key component to Sequans’ LTE solution. Sequans, world-leading supplier of WiMAX semiconductor solutions, recently announced the launch of its LTE development program.

“Our cooperation with Dorfour accelerates our LTE development and supports the high performance and low cost development objectives we have for our LTE product line,” said Georges Karam, Sequans CEO. “Dorfour technology also supports both 2X2 and 4X2 transmission schemes.”

Engineers from leading semiconductor company Texas Instruments and leading WiMAX systems provider Alvarion founded Dorfour. The team has been working on LTE technology development for more than two years.

“Sequans’ leadership in semiconductor solutions is evident in their LTE development and we are pleased to contribute to it,” said Amit Lubovsky, one of Dorfour’s founders. “Dorfour’s focus on high efficiency and low power consumption mirrors Sequans focus on the same, and our combined technologies will yield a powerful LTE solution.”

Sequans is on track to demonstrate its first LTE solutions in early 2010, in support of pre-commercial operator trials.
