Interphase, Aricent collaborate with Mindspeed to create 4G basestation platforms

Claims to offer LTE eNodeB offering in AdvancedMC form factor

By CBR Staff Writer

Mindspeed Technologies, a supplier of semiconductor solutions for network infrastructure applications, is collaborating with Interphase, a provider of embedded networking and communications offerings, and Aricent, on the Interphase iSPAN 36701 wireless base station Advanced Mezzanine Card (AdvancedMC).

According to Mindspeed, the Transcede 4000 baseband processor system-on-chip (SoC) will power the iSPAN 36701, which targets 4G wireless basestation applications. Aricent offers LTE software running on the Transcede processor as part of the complete iSPAN 36701 LTE reference offering.

The company said that the Aricent’s LTE eNodeB reference framework includes Layer 2 (MAC, RLC, PDCP) and Layer 3 (S2AP / X1AP) modules and all transport stacks including evolved GPRS tunneling protocol-user (eGTP-U) and stream control transmission protocol (SCTP). It is integrated with an LTE reference physical layer (PHY) implemented by Mindspeed.

Mindspeed said that the iSPAN 36701 is targeted for use in a 4G network element such as an LTE eNodeB or WiMAX base station.

Marc DeVinney, vice president of engineering at Interphase, said: “The solution integrates everything that is needed in a wireless basestation, except for the radio, into a very compact form factor. In addition, the LTE reference software from Aricent and Mindspeed will accelerate the time to market for basestation developers by providing an off-the-shelf, integrated solution.”
