LSI has updated its silicon portfolio of media, advanced communications, content processing, and link communication processing offerings for mobile networks.
The company claims that the entire portfolio, now based on a unified asymmetric multicore architecture, offers a single platform for development of a multi-radio wireless infrastructure, while establishing the foundation for development of the wireless base station on a chip (BSoC).
According to LSI, the new offerings include Axxia Communication Processor family, which features LSI Virtual Pipeline message-passing technology and Tarari deep packet inspection technology; and the StarPro SP2704 and SP2716 media and baseband processors, which can support more than 3,000 simultaneous gateway channels per device, enabling a single multi-radio access network.
In addition, the new portfolio also includes a link communication processor that allows network traffic to be migrated from existing TDM networks to ethernet and IP networks.
Charlie Kawwas, vice president of marketing for networking components division at LSI, said: Last year, we developed a strategy to create a family of communications products based on a unified architecture that would serve as a cornerstone for continuous improvements in performance, lower power and cost.
