Power/Performance Breakthrough for LTE-Advanced Handsets
Chris Rowen, CTO, Tensilica
This presentation will overview the computing challenge of multi-standard 3G/4G user-equipment baseband PHY design. The transition from LTE to LTE-Advanced can require up to a 5x increase in algorithm and data rate computation within ever-tighter power budgets. This step-function increase in performance and efficiency demands significant innovation down to the DSP engines themselves. To meet these needs, the BBE32UE DSP core delivers 2-3x the performance of earlier DSP cores already deployed in volume handsets and almost doubles energy efficiency. Using this design, a fully software-programmable, flexible modem for LTE-Advanced user equipment Category 7 PHY can be realized in less than 200 mW (28nm HPL process). Sign up now.
