Altair is a fabless semiconductor company based in Israel that is developing state of the art, ultra low power mobile WiMAX silicon solutions optimized for handsets and handheld devices.

Altair was founded in May 2005 by former Texas Instruments executives with extensive broadband and wireless silicon experience. Their products are the smallest, lowest power solutions in the industry, offering superb mobility performance and enabling the migration of WiMAX from a fixed wireless PC technology to a true next generation mobile technology.

Altair's management and technology executives were among the founding team of Libit Signal Processing, a fabless chip company acquired by Texas Instruments in 1999 for $365 million. The company's world class scientists, algorithm, VLSI and software engineers have in the past, jointly developed over twenty complex mixed-signal silicon products, spanning six different broadband wired and wireless technologies.
