, a fabless semiconductor vendor specializing in communication processors for 4G mobile devices, announced the availability of a new platform, the ComMAX LT8000DP, for the LT8000 LTE (News
) UE baseband at Mobile World Congress, Barcelona.
LT8000DP is a pre-silicon development platform for integration of Comsys Mobile’s ComMAX LTE technology with ecosystem partners’ IP, for a comprehensive LTE solution in shorter time to market.
Integrating Comsys (News
) Mobile’s LT8000 LTE baseband, the LT8000DP platform provides all the requirements for an easy and rapid path towards a System on Chip or “SoC” solution for LTE mobile devices, according to company officials.
LT8000DP supports eUTRA Frequency Division Duplexing or “FDD” and Time Division Duplexing or “TDD” as well as LTE CAT4 with sustained data throughput up to 150Mbps, Comsys officials said.
It also provides the capability to conduct pre-compliance GCF testing, IOT and Field Trials, to shorten time to maturity, they added.
The ComMAX LT8000 is a UE baseband SoC designed for mobile devices. It incorporates Comsys Mobile’s patented FlexArc SoC architecture for optimized power consumption and flexibility, with a scalability that enables support for 3GPP LTE release 8 and release 9.
LT8000 was designed for multimode support with other cellular technologies such as GSM/Edge Radio Access Network or “GERAN” and UMTS Terrestrial Radio Access Network or “UTRAN,” and provides all the communication features essential for 4G mobile devices and other wireless consumer electronic devices.
According to Avi Sharon, director of LTE Product Marketing at Comsys Mobile, patented FlexArc SoC architecture provides an optimized solution for mobile devices requiring the scalability to support higher data rates as well as to comply in the future with LTE release 9.
“We are inviting partners to join forces in developing a cutting-edge LTE SoC solution based on our LT8000DP platform,” Sharon added.
Comsys Mobile, in association with HelloSoft (News
), also announced a low cost Android WiMAX, GSM and WiFi reference design at the 2010 Mobile World Congress, TMCnet reported
. HelloSoft’s VoIP and convergence client suite for Android (News
) is one feature offered in this design.
