NEWPORT BEACH, Calif. --(Business Wire)--
Technologies, Inc. (NASDAQ: MSPD), a leading supplier of
semiconductor solutions for network infrastructure applications, today
announced that Aricent
Inc. showcased LTE (News - Alert) small cell solutions featuring Mindspeed®'s
Transcede® processor at 4G
World this week at McCormick Place in Chicago, IL; and that ARM
demonstrated Mindspeed's latest LTE small cell SoC at the ARM
TechCon™ conference at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa
Clara, CA (News - Alert).
Aricent's 4G World demo highlighted a jointly-developed LTE eNodeB
reference framework The carrier-class product is a complete solution
design, from RF interface through S1 and X2 interfaces and includes
Aricent base station software stacks integrated with Mindspeed baseband
and silicon. Rigorously tested for functionality and performance, the
base station solution is designed to help telecom equipment
manufacturers (TEMs) deliver high-performance base stations in multiple
form factors, including femto, pico, metro and micro-cell configurations
and is available for both LTE FDD and TD-LTE variants.
The ARM (News - Alert) TechCon demo featured Mindspeed's Transcede 4000 processor and
showcased a complete, full performance LTE home eNodeB reference system
utilizing carrier-class software from both Mindspeed and Radisys
Corporation, with the system's protocol stack running on the ARM®
Cortex™-A9 quad-core processor.
Mindspeed was one of ARM's first licensees and now includes ARM
processors in several different product lines, from communications
processors, such as the new Comcerto® 2000, to small cell baseband SoCs.
Within these, the Mindspeed portfolio supports all the major
air-interfaces (GSM, TD-SCDMA, HSPA, LTE FDD and TD-LTE), and scales
from cost-effective residential femtocells to high-performance
metro-cells.�Mindspeed's PC202 residential femtocell SoC is used in the
world's largest small cell deployment, while the Transcede 3300 product,
announced earlier this year, is the first system-on-chip (SoC) designed
for dual-mode (HSPA+LTE) operation.
"Mindspeed has developed its industry-leading small cell portfolio using
ARM technology and can attest to the benefits of the ARM core for
cellular infrastructure," said Rupert Baines (News - Alert), vice president, corporate
strategy and marketing communication, at Mindspeed. "Just this week
Informa announced that the number of small cells has overtaken the
number of traditional base stations, meaning that the vast majority of
new base stations are powered by ARM processors."
