NXP's LTE Soft Modem Taps Out at 150/50 Mbps

NXP Semiconductors introduced what is believed to be the world's fastest high-bandwidth cellular soft modem -- Nexperia Cellular System Solution PNX6910 -- which is capable of achieving data transfer rates of 150 Mbps downlink and 50 Mbps uplink, and supports multi-mode LTE/HSPA/UMTS/EDGE/GPRS/GSM capability.


The device, which is powered by NXP's Embedded Vector Processor (EVP) DSP core, could be used in mobile devices capable of downloading an entire HD movie in less than 7 minutes -- over twenty times faster than today's HSPA Cat 8 devices at 7.2 Mbps.

NXP said its PNX6910 is optimized for a wide range of consumer electronics beyond mobile phones, bringing broadband connectivity to digital still and video cameras, next generation laptops, Internet tablets and ultra-mobile PCs.


"Multimedia content sharing and Web 2.0 services will be the drivers for next-generation handsets and a new breed of connected consumer electronics," according to Dan Rabinovitsj, senior VP & GM of cellular business at NXP Semiconductors. "The PNX6910 will provide consumers with the data services and experiences they are used to from the Internet, while they are on-the-go."


The Nexperia Cellular System Solution PNX6910 will be available to early access customers in the second quarter of 2009.http://www.nxp.com/
