Icera Launches Espresso® 300 Mobile Broadband Device Platform with Programmable Feature Set

Bristol, UK, 2 May 2008. Icera Inc., the leader in software defined wireless modem chipsets, has today announced the Espresso® 300 software defined, mobile broadband device platform. Espresso® 300 delivers a complete reference design for high performance mobile broadband devices such as USB dongles and embedded PCI minicard modules for laptops and mobile internet devices.

The Espresso® 300 platform is unique in offering a software defined feature set that allows three different performance level products to be produced by device manufacturers. Based on the Icera Livanto® ICE8040 chipset, the platform can be configured with three different Icera Adaptive WirelessTM firmware solutions to support different feature sets and performance levels all from a common platform.
