Icera Q4 revenues four times higher than 2008

Mobile broadband semiconductor company, Icera, has announced Q4 2009 revenues four times higher than the same quarter in 2008. This represents the company's sixth successive quarter of growth.

The Bristol based company's chipsets are used in high speed mobile broadband devices such as usb modem sticks, embedded modules for netbooks and eReaders.

Stan Boland, president and ceo of Icera, explained that multiple, major mobile network operators specified Icera chipsets for mobile broadband devices in 2009. Boland said: "That's because our advanced soft modem technology is the most effective way to maximise live network user data rates, simultaneously supporting strong subscriber demand and quality of service. With more product companies making Icera based devices available every quarter, using our technology is now a simple and viable choice. We were also pleased to achieve our first voice qualified product in 2009, signaling our intention to take our technology into the SmartPhone market in the future.'
