Advanced LTE small cell software supports latest wireless SoC from TI

February 19, 2013 // By Paul Buckley
The company, mimoOn is supporting the latest generation of Texas Instruments’ wireless SoCs, the TCI6636, with its complete range of mi!SmallCell products.

The mimoOn offering continues to raise the level of performance and quality of small cell solutions while lowering the barrier to entry for small cell product developers.

The TCI6636 is targeted at ultra high capacity small cell and ‘green power’ macro cell infrastructure applications. The mi!SmallCell product family is planned for availability on the TCI6636 in mid-2013.

The foundation of the software package is mi!SmallCellPHY, the time-critical physical layer software that efficiently takes advantage of the accelerators and processing power of the eight TI  DSP cores in the TCI6636. Via the Small Cell Forum-defined interface, the PHY connects with mi!SmallCellSTACK, the upper protocol layers for the LTE basestation.

The products comply with the 3GPP Release 9 specification, with evolution to Release 10 planned for late 2013.
