Texas Instruments Transforms The Economics Of Small Cells

Stocks in this article: TXN





LONDON, June 4, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- SMALL CELLS WORLD SUMMIT -- Texas Instruments Incorporated (TI) (NASDAQ: TXN) today is unveiling the industry's most power and BOM optimized small cell solution for developers of indoor enterprise PoE+ and outdoor pico base stations. Combining performance levels and features that enable macro service parity, TI's new KeyStone-based TCI6630K2L System-on-Chip (SoC) offers small cell developers a single hardware and software platform to address multiple indoor and outdoor use cases, as well as headroom to offer differentiated features and enhance their platforms as operator requirements continue to evolve. Combined with TI's Base Station SoftwarePac and new analog front end transceiver, the AFE7500, the TCI6630K2L takes a quantum leap into solving the ever pervasive challenges impeding on the small cell market by meeting the most stringent power, and cost requirements of base stations, without compromising performance and features.

"TI has demonstrated that it understands and is willing to respond to the recent challenges and requirements of our industry," said Dan Picker, CTO, PureWave Networks. "That is why we have again chosen to leverage their latest solution in the newest members of our small cell product family. TI's highly-integrated SoC and accompanying software allows us to realize our most aggressive product visions, get to market faster, and provides us the flexibility to easily adapt our designs to various operator requirements within a very tight power budget. The TCI6630K2L also has an unprecedented level of DRFE integration which, along with the AFE7500, helps us to achieve power efficiency and cost targets that would otherwise be unattainable. As we have said before, we have found a true roadmap partner in TI."

Meeting the needs of a dynamic small cell landscape

As the small cell market continues to evolve, operators are seeking out flexible platforms that enable them to deliver a range of products -- with a single SoC and software investment. TI's TCI6630K2L is just that solution. Designed as a PoE+ capable platform, the TCI6630K2L enables OEMs to develop a scalable product portfolio of high-performance indoor small cells, for up to 128 users. The TCI6630K2L combines L1/L2/L3 baseband performance with a fully integrated digital radio front end (DRFE), enabling it to meet single band, dual band, simultaneous dual mode and carrier aggregation scenarios all within a PoE+ power budget. The TCI6630K2L also provides the headroom needed to meet higher end requirements, allowing operators to future proof and scale their platform for both indoor and outdoor deployments with a single solution.
