Tensilica Lays the Foundation for Software Programmable LTE-Advanced User Equipment PHY (Layer 1) in Less than 200mW

After great success in the LTE (Long-Term Evolution) handset baseband market, Tensilica, Inc. today announced that it is driving the transition to LTE-Advanced and has already secured lead customers for its new product - the ConnX BBE32UE DSP (digital signal processor) IP core for baseband SOC (system-on-chip) designs. Using the ConnX BBE32UE DSP core, coupled with Tensilica Baseband Dataplane processors (DPUs), a fully software programmable, flexible modem for LTE-Advanced user equipment category 7 PHY (Layer 1) can be realized in less than 200mW (28 nm HPL process). It can also support 2G, 3G, LTE and HSPA+ standards. See press release.
