February 9, 2010 â€“ mimoOn, a pioneer in LTE software implementation for programmable radio platforms, announced that it will be demonstrating LTE for pico base stations at Mobile World Congress (MWC) in Barcelona next week. mimoOn will showcase its advanced LTE PHY implementation running on TIâ€™s DSPs, February 15-18, 2010, in the mimoOn booth 2B17 at MWC.
mimoOnâ€™s mi!PicoPHYâ„¢ base station software has been integrated on TIâ€™s TMS320TCI648x highly flexible, scalable processors targeting LTE products. The fully featured PHY software is certified based on the latest versions of the 3GPP standards. It is modular and written in ANSI-C language, which allows flexibility and scalability with advanced algorithms such as high-performance channel estimators and MIMO detectors. In addition, the mi!PicoPHYâ„¢ is designed for low memory and power consumption which are critical design requirements for small form factor base stations. TIâ€™s C648x series of DSPs offer equipment manufacturers the advantages of design and code reuse, since the processors can be scaled to meet both the intensive processing demands of macro base stations, as well as the cost constraints of the residential femtocell.
According to Thomas Kaiser, CEO of mimoOn, â€œAs we enter 2010, weâ€™re observing numerous trials globally and increasing numbers of base station shipments for LTE. mimoOnâ€™s offering with TI allows customers to benefit from advanced signal processing, industry leading processors, and market scalability all in the same package.â€
â€œThe pre-integration of the mimoOnâ€™s mi!PicoPHYâ„¢ LTE software onto TIâ€™s field proven wireless base station processors allows customers to get to market quickly and reliably in the rapidly evolving Pico LTE space,â€ said Kathy Brown, business manager, wireless base station infrastructure business, Texas Instruments.
