Femtocell SoC with Integrated DDR, Increases Security While Reducing Overall Cost and SizeRA'ANANA, Israel, Feb. 10 — (PRNewswire) — Percello Ltd., an Israeli fabless semiconductor company developing highly integrated and low-cost digital baseband processors for UMTS and LTE femtocells, today unveiled the PRC6100, the industry's most integrated digital baseband SoC for residential use. The newest member of the Percello Aquilo™ Femtocell SoC product line, the PRC61000 enables femtocell vendors to reduce cost, size and power of femtocells, while ensuring security.
The PRC6100 maximizes digital integration on a single chip to deliver the lowest cost and greatest security available for an HSPA+ femtocell. The chip contains high speed MIPS24Kc and its peripherals, femtocell L1 engine (FLE) and embedded DDRs. As a result, it does not require any external memory, or digital parts on the board. The PRC6100 is compliant with 3GPP HNB specs. It supports eight users and offers HSPA+ data rates of 21.6 Mbps downstream and 5.76 Mbps upstream.
"PRC6100 enables vendors to develop HSPA+ femtocells that are smaller and cost less," says Rafy Carmon, vice president of Research and Development at Percello. "In addition PRC6100 introduces new security standards for femtocell with its integrated DDRs."
Samples of the PRC6100 are now available for selected customers.
Percello, a fabless semiconductor company, was founded to provide digital baseband solutions to address challenges of the 3G/HSDPA/HSUPA/HSPA+/LTE femtocell and picocell market: cost, power, level of integration, development time and flexibility. Percello has vast knowledge in silicon design, software and 3G/HSDPA/HSUPA/HSPA+/LTE communication systems. Percello's architecture combines programmable multi-processing DSPs and dedicated hardware accelerators. This approach is optimized for power consumption, cost reduction and risk minimization.
