The W-Series devices provide a function-optimized, multi-protocol processing element to meet the needs of 3GPP release 4, 5 and 6 Iub transport interfaces in micro, macro and pico basestation (BTS) products. These new devices utilize Wintegra's internal packet processing engines and its proprietary hardware architecture, which features modified symmetric multi-processors, to provide performance across a wide range of wireless systems.
The W-Series is a single chip solution, integrating the interfaces required for either end of the transport link, and connecting the BTS with the Basestation Controller (BSC). On-chip time division multiplexed (TDM), UTOPIA/POS, and Ethernet interfaces are all included, allowing direct connection to any ATM, IMA or IP transport. The W-Series processors can also support SDH/SONET channelized interfaces as required by the 3GPP standards. With these on-chip interfaces, scalable performance, plus ease of programming provided by WinPath, manufacturers have a new platform on which they can design and develop OBSAI and CPRI compliant Node B designs.
Numerous manufacturers are already designing with Wintegra's WinPath access processor family, which has now been extended with the introduction of W-Series devices such as the Win717W6. These processors have been selected by several of the leading equipment manufacturers in their latest designs for 3G in Europe, the Far East, North America and South America. Wintegra plans to continue the evolution of the WinPath roadmap, and to offer solutions to cover the needs of CPRI and OBSAI based Node B designs, as well as ATCA/AMC based RNC and MG equipment.
"Utilizing WinPath technology (especially the software provided from Wintegra) has enabled TD-Tech to realize a complex, scalable design very quickly," said Mr. Zhang Shaojing, R&D Director, TD Tech. "The breadth of support provided by the WinPath devices, along with its associated datapath software and API, has allowed us to meet the needs of our design as well as providing us with a scalable platform to build standards compliant future designs. The functionality provided by the WinPath W-Series matches our needs very closely."
"The WinPath range of highly integrated Access Packet Processors gives us an ideal platform to deliver the performance requirements and flexibility of designs required in the Iub transport interface," added Dr. Xiao Lei, Node B Project Leader, TD Tech.
