Percello Introduces 16-User Femtocell Chip

Percello, an Israeli fabless semiconductor company developing highly integrated and low-cost digital baseband for UMTS and LTE networks, unveiled the second product in its Aquilo chip family for enterprise-grade femtocells. The new PRC6500 SOC supports 16 users - double the capacity of competing solutions - while delivering evolved high speed packet access (HSPA+) data rates of 21.6Mbps and 5.7Mbps and extended cell range optimized for outdoor applications. It is pin-compatible with Percello's first Aquilo chip - the PRC6000 - an eight-user HSPA+ device, and can be easily used by Percello customers to offer a low-cost solution for residential, enterprise and outdoor applications.


The PRC6500 is compliant with 3GPP HNB specs. It integrates an HSPA+ modem, a MIPS processor, 3GPP L2 hardware accelerators, IP-SEC accelerators, embedded secured platform capabilities, a timing and synchronization mechanism, 2G/3G cognitive radio capabilities and peripherals such as embedded USIM I/F.


Aquilo architecture enables UMTS NodeB and RNC functionality to run on a single die. The family chips contain MIPS24Kc and its peripherals as well as femtocell L1 engine (FLE), which includes an HSPA+ modem and embedded RF I/F.
