Telecomlead Team: Freescale Semiconductor, a
provider of embedded processing solutions, has announced that it is going to
debut its first large cell base station-on-chip product built on the innovative
QorIQ Qonverge multimode platform.
The new QorIQ Qonverge B4860 baseband processor delivers
higher performance than other macro cell base station-on-chip SoCs supporting
the LTE, LTE-Advanced and WCDMA standards.
The single-chip B4860 solution is compatible with
Freescale’s QorIQ Qonverge small cell products and integrates efficient,
high-performance cores, application-specific accelerators and optimal
The company said that its QorIQ Qonverge small cell base
station-on-chip processors have met with rapid adoption since their
introduction last year.
Companies adopting QorIQ Qonverge processors for
their next-generation designs currently account for more than 50 percent of the
small cell base station market.
Freescale introduced the B4860 product a year after
announcing its QorIQ Qonverge small cell series as the first portfolio of
multi-standard products sharing the same architecture and spanning from small
to large cells.
The QorIQ Qonverge portfolio of software-compatible base
station-on-chip products is built on a common architecture integrating Power
Architectur microprocessors, StarCore digital signal processors and wireless
acceleration technologies on a single chip.
The QorIQ Qonverge B4860 macrocell baseband
processor allows OEMs to develop differentiated products that help service
providers ramp LTE, begin to deploy LTE-Advanced and address the stringent cost
requirements of WCDMA base station processing,” said Tom Deitrich, senior vice
president and general manager of Freescale’s Networking & Multimedia
Together, Freescale’s QorIQ Qonverge PSC913x customers
represent more than 50 percent of the small cell market, positioning Freescale
well in this fast-growing market.
One year after introducing our QorIQ Qonverge products,
many customers have adopted our femtocell base station-on-chip technology and
will soon have access to even more comprehensive solutions with our attached
Layer 1 software,” said Scott Aylor, general manager of Freescale Wireless
Recently, Small cell provider has adopted Freescale’s QorIQ Qonverge PSC913x processors for
their small cell base station solutions.
