NEWPORT BEACH, Calif. - February 15, 2010 -- Mindspeed Technologies, Inc., a leading supplier of semiconductor solutions for network infrastructure applications, today announced that it has licensed common public radio interface (CPRI™) intellectual property (IP) cores from Denmark-based Radiocomp® for use in Mindspeed®’s application-specific system-on-chip (SoC) solutions for next-generation mobile broadband basestation platforms.
“We believe that Radiocomp’s solution is an ideal, efficient and high-performance CPRI implementation,” said Surinderjit Dhaliwal, core technology director at Mindspeed. “We believe that the completeness and the maturity of the IP core makes it the most attractive choice in the market for our Transcede™ solution.”
Mindspeed's recently introduced Transcede family of processors delivers a new class of high-performance silicon designed to meet the huge increase in basestation diversity and computational complexity caused by the Mobile Internet's migration from a voice-centric 2G/3G mobile network to a data centric 3G+/4G/long term evolution (LTE) mobile network. The industry’s most highly integrated solution, the Transcede processor replaces today's complex, expensive and inflexible solutions consisting of general-purpose digital signal processors (DSPs) plus field programmable gate arrays (FPGAs) and network processing units (NPUs). It incorporates an unprecedented 26 programmable processors in a single device, plus complete I/O functionality including CPRI capabilities provided by the Radiocomp IP cores.
“We are extremely pleased with acquiring Mindspeed as a new customer, and showcasing our interface technology in the company’s Transcede family of products,” said Soren Danielsen, director of sales and marketing at Radiocomp. “We believe that our state-of-the-art IP cores and Mindspeed’s industry leadership in semiconductor networking solutions is a winning combination.”
Radiocomp’s IP cores have become the de-facto standard for Open Base Station Architecture Initiative (OBSAI) and CPRI interfacing, and today cover CPRI version 4.1 and OBSAI RP3-01 version 4.1. They include all features and functionality required for a full implementation of the LTE standard, Mobile WiMAX, wideband code-division multiple access (W-CDMA), and other technologies.
