As Tensilica has been working with its customers to design building blocks for LTE PHY designs, including the DSPs and forward-error-correction subsystems, we've realized five key pitfalls associated with LTE baseband development. See this brand new white paper for more details.

As a member of the software development tools team, you will participate in the design and implementation of the Tensilica software toolchain, in particular the C/C++ compiler targeted for Xtensa processors. Your responsibilities will include maintaining and improving existing compiler algorithms, as well as working closely with software, hardware and application teams on specifying and developing new features.

Just got my Google Nexus One. Actually, I wish it were really mine - it belongs to Tensilica and we'll be taking it to Mobile World Congress next month to show it off. We're proud to say that a Tensilica processor is inside this phone!

HD video encoding and decoding algorithms get the bulk of attention by designers developing such products, but HD video codecs for advanced video applications such as broadcast television and Blu-ray disc players have quickly become standardized; there’s little room for product differentiation in a standardized video codec. However, you can substantially differentiate an HD product’s design by improving the video image stream—both before video compression and after.

A host of products based on Tensilica's dataplane processors (DPUs) will be demonstrated at this year's Consumer Electronics Show, January 7-10 in Las Vegas. These Tensilica-enabled products include some of the most advanced, innovative consumer devices, including Blu-ray Disc players, Bluetooth-enabled devices, LCD TVs, cellular phones, WiFi- and W-USB-enabled notebook computers, wireless HDMI, handheld games, and inkjet and laser printers. Tensilica will showcase its leading-edge audio, video and baseband communication IP cores, including the popular HiFi 2 Audio Engine running on the Android platform in collaboration with MIPS Technologies, in the South Hall of the Las Vegas Convention Center, suite South 4 35567MP.

Read the whitepaper. Designers need a quick, fool-proof way to customize those processors for the exact task at hand. A dataplane processor (or "DPU") naturally connects to existing RTL blocks and provides additional computational horsepower tailored to the exact data type needed - all this with less effort than hand-coding RTL finite state machines or microcoded engines.
