Percello Introduces 16-User Femtocell SOC at the Femtocells London Event

Samples are available to selected customers

RA'ANANA, Israel, June 1 /PRNewswire/ -- Percello Ltd., an Israeli fabless semiconductor company developing highly integrated and low-cost digital baseband for UMTS and LTE networks, today unveiled the PRC6500, the second product in Percello's Aquilo chip family, which offers the capacity and speed required for enterprise-grade applications.

PRC6500 supports 16 users - double the capacity of competing solutions - while delivering evolved high speed packet access (HSPA+) data rates of 21.6Mbps and 5.7Mbps and extended cell range optimized for outdoor applications. It is pin-compatible with Percello's first Aquilo chip - the PRC6000 - an eight-user HSPA+ device, and can be easily used by Percello customers to offer a low-cost solution for residential, enterprise and outdoor applications.

"As the first company to bring the most integrated SOC into this market, we are pleased again to be the technology leaders by introducing PRC6500, the first worldwide 16-user device. With the PRC6500, vendors can run a single product line that supports both the residential and enterprise markets," said Yoav Volloch, vice president of Product Management at Percello. "As a 16-user device with sniffing capabilities, the PRC6500 is the only one that enables low-cost and low-power simultaneous open and closed femtocell on a single radio. For example, a solution based on PRC6500 can allocate six dedicated channels for the closed part and 10 for the open part; 14.4Mbps will be allocated to the closed part and 7.2Mbps to the open."

PRC6500 is compliant with 3GPP HNB specs. It integrates an HSPA+ modem, a powerful MIPS processor, 3GPP L2 hardware accelerators, IP-SEC accelerators, embedded secured platform capabilities, a timing and synchronization mechanism, 2G/3G cognitive radio capabilities and peripherals such as embedded USIM I/F.

As a member of the Aquilo family, the PRC6500 is based on an advanced process to deliver the lowest cost and the lowest power femtocell. As such, it does not require heat sync/airflow or external FPGA logic.

In addition, PRC6500 is a scalable solution. "If you'd like to have a 32- or 64-user offering, you can connect two or four PRC6500s in cascade," Volloch added. "This is one of the fundamental features of Aquilo architecture."

Aquilo architecture enables UMTS NodeB and RNC functionality to run on a single die. The family chips contain MIPS24Kc and its peripherals as well as femtocell L1 engine (FLE), which includes an HSPA+ modem and embedded RF I/F.
