Wireless RF chips for mobile devices…
M4S is a R&D center developing an exciting, fresh approach to multi-standard wireless RF chips for mobile devices. Whereas multi-standard communication has increasingly become a must in today's converged devices, its implementation implies a multitude of challenges for mobile device manufacturers. M4S addresses these challenges based on the unique combination of disruptive IMEC technology, access to proven solutions for the relevant standards and a total solution based approach.


In a young company…
In 2007, M4S spun out of IMEC, with goal of delivering single chip RF transceivers for the cellular market. In 2010 M4S was acquired by Huawei, a leading telecom solutions provider. The company is known for its telecom network infrastructure products that have been deployed in over 100 countries and have served 45 of the world's top 50 telecom operators, as well as one third of the world's population.

Developing single chip multi-standard cellular RF transceivers…
M4S offers single chip multi-standard cellular RF transceivers that support a wide range of standards, such as GSM, EDGE, W-CDMA, HSPA+, LTE. In combination with Huawei's baseband chips, next generation mobile devices that use M4S' RF transceivers will handle higher data rates, be more cost effective, consume less power and can be deployed globally.

Through the force of Huawei …
In 2008, M4S attracted the core RF transceiver development team of Freescale in Cork, Ireland. This team has been instrumental in turning the leading edge RF circuit concepts from IMEC into industry grade products. After its incubation by Option Wireless Technologies, a well-respected innovator of cellular data modems, M4S is now part of the Huawei family and is in an excellent position to deliver its products on a global scale.

Will the internet go mobile …
M4S' entire team is proud to contribute to the 'Internet goes mobile' revolution by turning the results of iMEC's world class researchers into competitive products that can be applied globally by its parent company in next-generation mobile devices.
