LTE North America Award Preview – Best Chipset / Processor Product






The LTE North America Awards will take place on the 8 November 2011 at the Fairmont Hotel in Dallas, Texas, USA





The LTE North America awards 2011 are taking place next week on the 8th November 2011 at the Fairmont Hotel in Dallas, Texas, USA. The awards celebrate the innovation and excellence in that has taken place over the past 12 months in the LTE industry and features 60 nominees across 9 categories. In the lead up to the awards, we are featuring close looks at each of the companies shortlisted and here we bring you a preview of the category: Best Chipset / Processor Product.

GCT Semiconductor, Inc: GDM7240

GDM7240 is a highly integrated single-chip LTE processor designed to deliver wireless broadband connectivity for devices such as smartphones, tablets, hotspots, USB dongles and PCIe minicards. It supports every type of FDD-LTE band and includes an LTE baseband, a high performance processor, a transceiver and an array of peripherals for connectivity and multimedia. The single chip architecture significantly reduces power consumption which enables long battery life, while also reducing the bill of material costs. So far over LG has shipped over one million devices featuring the single chip LTE processor.

Mindspeed Technologies: Transcede 40xx System-on Chip (SoC)

Mindspeed’s Transcede family of SoCs integrates 26 programmable processors into a single device. These include two ARM Cortex A9 chips, (RISC) processors, 10 CEVA DSPs, and 10 DSP accelerators. The Transcede family of SoCs can deliver three types of LTE processing in a single device, while still providing processing headroom, enabling manufactures to deploy their own value-added features. Trancedes chip moves carriers away from a 2G-centric design approach and enables them to use computationally complex technology to squeeze as much capacity as possible out of limited available spectrum. Mindspeed has had four design wins and 18 active customer engagements for next-generation (LTE) dual-mode small cells in under a year.

PMC-Sierra: WinPath3 Network Processor

Connecting base stations to the access gateway, backhaul technology is one of the decisive elements affecting the overall success of LTE. The WinPath3 is PMC-Sierra’s third generation network processor for the mobile backhaul market. It’s a programmable and flexible network processor that helps make this happen. It enables protocols and features to be added via a software upgrade and scalable performance up to 10Gbps. It offers carrier-class packet processing and supports all available mediums, such as native Ethernet, Ethernet ring, PDH, microwave, to xDSL and PON.
