Renesas Mobile Showcases Next Generation Low Power LTE and High Performance Processing at Mobile World Congress
BARCELONA, Spain --(Business Wire)--
Mobile Corporation, a leading supplier of advanced cellular
semiconductor solutions and platforms, will be demonstrating its latest
LTE and applications processing technologies at this year's Mobile
World Congress 2013 at booth 6E25
in Hall 6.
The event will see the unveiling of the quad-core MP6530, Renesas
Mobile's latest generation communication processor platform for mid- to
high-end multimode LTE smartphones. The MP6530 moves quad-core 2GHz
processing power to the $200-400 segment and extends Renesas Mobile's
portfolio. The MP6530 integrates a high-performance 2GHz big.LITTLE™
ARM (News - Alert)® Cortex A15/A7 application processor with its proven LTE Cat-4,
DC-HSPA+/GSM modem on a single die. The processor combines high
performance and extreme power efficiency to deliver exciting multimedia
use cases and to extend device battery life. The MP6530 opens the door
to a completely new generation of very high performance but ultra-low
power consumption smartphones.
Renesas Mobile's latest single-chip multi-mode TD-/FDD-LTE modem, the
SP2532, as well as SP2531 based devices, will feature in several
demonstrations that highlight the significant power and performance
advantages it presents. One demonstration will compare the Renesas
Mobile modem against a recent competitor's product highlighting that,
with a 2 mA/Mbit power consumption, the SP2532 delivers the industry's
best power consumption figures a a sustained 150 Mbit/s throughput.
When combined with its tiny footprint, which is 45% smaller than the
previous generation modem, it sets a new competitive threshold others
must beat in the race to deliver the best LTE modem for tablets, super-
and smartphones, as well as routers and datacards. The SP253X family
will also feature in demonstrations that highlight its compatibility
with multiple different applications processors including NVIDIA (News - Alert)®'s
Tegra3™ and Tegra4™.
Support for VoLTE is a hot topic with operators rolling out LTE so they
can provide efficient voice services across all of their network
properties. Renesas Mobile will be demonstrating VoLTE capabilities on
the MP5232 platform on both TD-LTE and FDD-LTE over-the-air to Ericsson (News - Alert)
infrastructure. The voice quality will be demonstrated with the Rohde
Schwarz UPV audio analyzer together with a CMW500 tester. The highlight
is its ability to maintain quality of service during data calls over an
LTE network. VoLTE can also offer power savings compared to 3G.
Renesas Mobile will showcase a ultra-high performance octo-core
application processor, the APE6, to illustrate its power advantages and
leading graphics performance. The big.LITTLE™ 4.4 compute engine is
coupled with the latest Imagination Technologies (News - Alert) PowerVR™ Series 6
Rogue™ graphics engine offering amazing performance in a mobile. Renesas
Mobile will be demonstrating the advantages of big.LITTLE as well as a
measure of the graphics capability.
"At this year's Mobile World Congress (News - Alert) we are showing significantly
updated versions of our leading LTE products - our communications
processor and our modem," commented Jean-Marie Rolland, Chief Technical
Officer and executive vice president marketing and sales for Renesas
Mobile Corporation. "Both products provide a high performance, low power
platform for next generation mobile devices. In addition, our phenomenal
APE6, not only represents the leading eight-core implementation of the
processing architecture but is well placed to power of a new
generation of advanced application processors for automotive
infotainment products, tablets and LTE multi-mode communication
processors for superphones."
