Mindspeed Unveils Comcerto Multi-Core SoC Packet Processors at CES
Mindspeed Technologies, Inc. a supplier of semiconductor solutions for network infrastructure applications, will be showcasing its Comcerto multi-core system-on-chip (SoC) packet processors at the 2011 International Consumer Electronics Show.
Mindspeed will also be displaying its Transcede family of software compatible baseband processors that is capable of hastening the development of a full range of 3G/4G/long-term evolution (LTE (News - Alert)) base stations -- from femto to macrocell architectures, added company officials.
In a release, Marco Bello, executive director of customer premises equipment, marketing and product management at Mindspeed, said, “We are pleased to be collaborating with Wind River (News - Alert) and Teldat to show the versatility of our Comcerto multi-core SoC packet processors.”
“Mindspeed’s multi-core expertise will be on full display at CES (News - Alert), from our Comcerto processors in exciting new broadband home router applications, to our Transcede family, which is helping to usher in a new generation of 4G and LTE base stations that are much easier to design across a broader range of small- to large-cell infrastructure platform variations,” Bello added.
With Wind River, Mindspeed will show how a broadband home router and intelligent service-enabling platform can be created using Mindspeed’s hardware and software integrated with Wind River Linux. This solution is suitable for gateway implementations. Also the inclusion of bundled OSGi run-time software enables the design to support many home automation applications.
Mindspeed will feature an eHealth application on Teldat’s iRouter, a fiber-to-the-home (FTTH) home router platform that is powered by Mindspeed’s Comcerto 100 processor. It has been optimized for OSGi-based value-added services.
It was revealed that Mindspeed’s Comcerto 100 solution enables Teldat to combine a router and application server on a single platform for triple-play fiber-access networks. This enables gigabit wire-speed performance besides offering remotely-managed services capability. The Teldat iRouter is being demonstrated by running it in a home healthcare and diagnostic monitoring service application.
Ignatius Loizaga, vice president of business development at Teldat, pointed out that Mindspeed’s optimum processor performance and technical support have enabled Teldat to be selected as the main FTTH gateway provider for important global carriers.
