Mindspeed and Bravo Tech Highlight TD-SCDMA Small Cell Capabilities at Mobile Asia Expo
NEWPORT BEACH, Calif., June 20, 2012 – Mindspeed Technologies, Inc. (NASDAQ: MSPD), the industry leader in technology for small cell base stations, and Bravo Tech Inc. (BTI), a worldwide provider of wireless coverage solutions and a pioneer in femtocell solutions, today announced that the companies will be showcasing a live time division synchronous code division multiple access (TD-SCDMA) femtocell demonstration at Mindspeed’s booth (N1.D63) at Mobile Asia Expo from June 20-22, 2012 at the Shanghai New International Expo Centre in Shanghai, China.
The collaboration highlights BTI’s commercially-available TD-SCDMA /Wi-Fi access point, which features Mindspeed®’s ARM®-based PC202 system-on-chip (SoC). Representatives from each company will be on-hand to showcase commercial smartphones sending and receiving voice, video and data communications via a production-grade femto gateway in China Mobile’s 3G network. Mobile Asia Expo delegates visiting the Mindspeed booth can also use their own TD-SCDMA handsets to try out the BTI femtocell for voice calls and mobile web access.
“Mindspeed is delighted that our SoCs are powering BTI’s innovative small cell solutions for the Chinese market,” said Dr. Huan-yu Su, vice president of business development for the wireless business unit at Mindspeed. “BTI is a pioneer in the Chinese femtocell market and we look forward to further collaborations with them in Asia and around the world. We are very pleased to host a public femtocell demonstration for service providers, customers, press and analysts at this year’s show.”
“Our initial 2012 rollout of femtocells for the Chinese market has been a tremendous success, “said Dong Wu, chief technology officer at BTI. “Mindspeed’s SoC processor family delivers multi-standard operation with carrier-grade performance, which has allowed us to get to market quickly with a full-featured femtocell that addresses the specific demands of TD-SCDMA customers.”
Mindspeed’s Transcede® family of processors are complete NodeB and eNodeB SoC solutions that support concurrent 3G and LTE processing, including TD-SCDMA, wideband code division multiple access (W-CDMA), evolved high-speed packet access (HSPA+) and both frequency division duplexing LTE (FDD-LTE) and time-division duplex LTE (TDD-LTE) with a roadmap to LTE-Advanced (LTE-A). Combining 3G and LTE processing capabilities into a single chip is more cost effective for OEMs and the inclusion of a carrier-class physical-layer (PHY) software solution for both 3G and LTE will accelerate time to market, while simplifying development and reducing risk.
Mindspeed has the most complete portfolio of small cell SoCs in the industry, from residential to enterprise to pico/metro applications. All Transcede family devices are supported by a complete, carrier-class software reference design to accelerate time-to-market schedules. The reference design includes RF module integration, a real-time Linux board support package and standard-compliant PHY implementation for LTE and W-CDMA and TD-SCDMA, with associated utilities and test scripts.
