EVA and mimoOn Partner on LTE PHY Reference Architectures

CEVA and mimoOn announced a range of LTE reference architectures based on the widely adopted CEVA-XC communication processor and designed to accelerate the development of cost-efficient, low-power 4G solutions for mass market terminal and infrastructure devices. The reference architectures are software upgradeable to support additional wireless communication standards such as WCDMA, HSPA+ and WiMAX.



The User Equipment (UE) reference architecture targets both LTE FDD and LTE TDD up to category-4 with ultra-low power consumption and silicon cost to meet the strict requirements of mobile devices. Furthermore, the solution can be easily scaled down to TDD mode only or lower LTE categories to offer an additional cost and power saving.



In 40nm LP process, the silicon area of a CEVA-XC based LTE UE can be as low as 4mm2 with a power consumption of less than 200mW for Cat-4 PHY system (20 MHz bandwidth, MIMO 2x2, 150 Mbit/sec).


The scalable eNodeB reference architecture targets both LTE FDD and LTE TDD, supporting various end products ranging from residential and enterprise femtocells through to high-density picocells. http://www.mimoOn.dehttp://www.ceva-dsp.com
