ArrayComm and Ceva have entered into a partnership to work towards the implementation of LTE eNodeB PHY on the CEVA-XC DSP core, which provides SoC product developers with a pre-optimised PHY software/processor package to incorporate in their overall system design.
The company said that the Ceva-XC processor is designed and optimised for low power communications processing, with a single core capable of handling complete 4G transceiver paths in software.
The LTE eNodeB PHY is a baseband physical layer incorporating A-MAS multi-antenna signal processing software. Delivering the two components as a pre-optimised package allows SoC developers to reduce program costs and time to market, the company claims.
Bruce Duysen, president of ArrayComm, said: “LTE requires high capacity with minimal cost, and SoC technology is the critical component for scalable LTE infrastructure platforms. CEVA’s CEVA-XC DSP offers the highest-performance flexible processor architecture for LTE infrastructure and we are excited to partner with them to accelerate the delivery of base stations.”
