This article reports that the communications processor developer PicoChip Inc. is increasing its emphasis on W-code division multiple access systems to support demand for femto basestations for 3G mobile phones. PicoChip is based in Bath, England. Femto basestations are being used to provide improved 3G access in buildings. PicoChip's CEO Guillaume d'Eyssautier says that handsets accessing the web via a 3G basestation with HSDPA, rather than WiFi, would be simpler and lower power.
