Freescale Targets LTE Base Station Equipment

Freescale Semiconductor introduces a development platform designed to speed and simplify creation of networking equipment for 3G Long Term Evolution (LTE). The platform leverages Freescale's portfolio of microprocessor and DSP technologies to deliver closely coupled Layer 1 and Layer 2 LTE radio processing. The solution combines programmable data plane software with Advanced Mezzanine Cards (AMCs) featuring the MPC8548 PowerQUICC III processor and the quad-core MSC8144 StarCore DSP. C-based data plane software integrates the processors, enabling the advanced features and scheduling algorithms essential to delivering low latency, high throughput LTE systems.
