Mindspeed collaborates with Contela on next-generation LTE femtocells and small cell base station solutions
Contela has already developed 3G femtocells that are widely deployed in carrier networks and is now enhancing its wireless products with LTE and dual-mode small cell products.
Mindspeed's Transcede family of processors include complete NodeB and eNodeB SoC solutions that perform concurrent 3G and LTE processing in a single device, including time division synchronous code division multiple access ( TD - SCDMA ), wideband code division multiple access (WCDMA) /high-speed packet access (HSPA+) and both frequency division duplexing LTE (FDD-LTE) and TD-LTE. The recently announced Transcede T22xx series targets residential and small enterprise applications, while the T33xx series is focused on enterprise, metro and pico base stations. These products combine Mindspeed’s strength in LTE with Picochip’s leadership in carrier grade 3G.
Mindspeed has the most complete portfolio of SoCs in the industry, ranging from cost-effective residential 3G only, through the new T22xx and T33xx up to the micro/macro class. All Transcede family devices are supported by a complete, carrier-class software reference design to accelerate time-to-market schedules. Mindspeed’s Transcede reference design includes RF module integration, a real-time Linux board support package, and standard-compliant physical-layer (PHY) implementation for LTE and W-CDMA and TD-SCDMA, with associated utilities and test scripts.
