TI Offers Three-core DSP for W-CDMA Base Stations

Texas Instruments introduced a single-chip, three-core DSP, running at 1GHz per core, targeted toward Wideband Code Division Multiple Access (W-CDMA) base stations.

The 3GHz-performing TMS320TCI6488 device is based on TI's TMS320C64x+ platform. The processing power of the C64x+ DSP provides dynamic support of both voice and data transmission with extremely low latency. For example, in High Speed Downlink Packet Access (HSDPA) applications, the TCI6488 can support 48 users per device in a macro base station system.
