Company is also a Finalist for a 2010 RCR Wireless Ecosystem Award at the Event
NEWPORT BEACH, Calif. — (BUSINESS WIRE) — October 19, 2010 — Mindspeed Technologies, Inc. (NASDAQ: MSPD), a leading supplier of semiconductor solutions for network infrastructure applications, today announced it is showcasing the company's Transcede™ system-on-chip (SoC) baseband processing device for 3G/4G/long-term evolution (LTE) basestations at the 4G World trade show in Chicago from October 19-21, 2010. The company will host private meetings and demonstrations for customers, press and analysts in Meeting Center #930 in the West Building at McCormick Place.
Mindspeed will demonstrate the Transcede T4000 SoC running an integrated physical layer (PHY) of LTE, while signal analysis software displays the SoC’s LTE digital modulation output. Mindspeed will also be showing the Interphase iSPAN 36701 wireless basestation Advanced Mezzanine Card (AdvancedMC™) in its 4G LTE compact basestation configuration, which is powered by Mindspeed’s Transcede 4000 processor.
"Mindspeed is pleased to be able to share a demonstration of our Transcede processor with members of the 4G community," said Alan Taylor, marketing director for Mindspeed's communications convergence processing (CCP) business unit. "The Transcede architecture can be easily scaled across a wide range of macrocell and ‘small cell’ platforms in support of all 3G/4G/LTE air-interface standards."
Mindspeed will be highlighting its entire family of Transcede processors at 4G World, including the single-core Transcede 3000, which meets the eNodeB processing needs of a small picocell, while consuming less than 10 watts (W) of power, and the dual-core Transcede 4000, which delivers three sectors of LTE processing for macro cells serving thousands of subscribers. The Transcede 4000 integrates an unprecedented 26 programmable processors into a single device, including two ARM® Cortex A9® multi-core symmetric multiprocessing (SMP) reduced instruction set computer (RISC) processors, 10 CEVA® digital signal processors (DSPs) and 10 DSP accelerators, enabling equipment manufacturers to fully support the complete processing needs of single- and multi-sector basestations using the wideband code-division multiple access (W-CDMA), LTE, LTE time-division duplex (TD-LTE, in China), time division synchronous code division multiple access (TD-SCDMA, in China) and/or WiMAX air-interface standards. Transcede-based designs have substantial processing headroom for value-added software features that developers can also readily port to other Transcede-based platforms, from picocells and enterprise femtocells to the largest macrocell implementations.
Mindspeed has also been honored as a finalist in the Best Mobile Chip Company category of the second annual 4G World RCR Wireless Ecosystem Awards at the event.
