PARIS — August 2, 2011 — 4G chipmaker Sequans Communications S.A.

These devices include Sequans’ 4G WiMAX technology and the advanced capabilities of the Android™ operating system.

The WiMAX chip inside the HTC devices is Sequans’ SQN1210, one of the most highly integrated semiconductor solutions in the industry. The SQN1210 is highly optimized for mobile handsets, delivering baseband and triple band RF integrated in a single, 65 nm die for ultra low power consumption and ultra high performance at a very low cost.  These innovations enable users to enjoy faster web browsing and smoother streaming media playback.  The chip also features Sequans’ patented dual transmit uplink technology, a technology pioneered by Sequans that can greatly improve coverage and performance.
