Demonstration Will Highlight Transcede Baseband Processor’s Flexibility for Developing 3G/4G/LTE Basestation Platforms
NEWPORT BEACH, Calif. — (BUSINESS WIRE) — February 14, 2010 — Mindspeed Technologies, Inc. (NASDAQ: MSPD), a leading supplier of semiconductor solutions for network infrastructure applications, today announced it is demonstrating the company’s recently introduced Transcede™ application-specific system-on-chip (SoC) baseband processing device for 3G/4G/long-term evolution (LTE) basestations at the Mobile World Congress trade show in Barcelona, Spain, this week.
The Transcede T4000 SoC’s integrated physical layer (PHY) device will be shown running an eNodeB software stack implemented on the Mindspeed® Transcede evaluation module. The demonstration will include signal analysis software displaying the LTE digital modulation output of the Transcede 4000.
“Mindspeed is very pleased to be able to provide an LTE application demonstration for our recently announced Transcede family,” said Alan Taylor, marketing director for Mindspeed’s multiservice access business unit. “This demonstration of the LTE eNodeB application is a testament to the programmability of the Transcede architecture, which can be easily scaled across an unprecedented range of platforms, from picocells to macrocells, serving anywhere from a handful to thousands of subscribers, in support of all 3G/4G/LTE air-interface standards.”
The Transcede family of SoCs integrates an unprecedented 26 programmable processors into a single device; including two ARM® Cortex A9® multi-core symmetric multiprocessing (SMP) reduced instruction set computer (RISC) processors, 10 CEVA® DSPs, and 10 DSP accelerators. The solution fully supports the complete processing needs of single- and multi-sector basestations using the wideband code-division multiple access (W-CDMA), LTE, LTE time-division duplex (TD-LTE, in China), time division synchronous code division multiple access (TD-SCDMA, in China), and/or WiMAX air-interface standards. The Transcede family of SoCs can deliver three sectors of LTE processing in a single device, while still providing substantial processing headroom, allowing manufactures to deploy their own value-added features as part of an overall Transcede-based solution.
Mobile World Congress 2010
Mindspeed will be showcasing the Transcede family of products at the Mobile World Congress tradeshow in Barcelona, Spain, from Feb. 15-18, 2010, in the company's booth -- Hall 2, Stand 2J40.
