Lime Microsystems and Blue Wonder Collaborate on LTE

Lime Microsystems and Blue Wonder Communications are jointly developing an LTE reference platform that will enable early adoption of this emerging standard. The fully characterised LTE reference platform will accelerate time to market for OEMs developing LTE systems. The reference platform is based on Lime Microsystems' integrated single chip RF transceiver, the LMS6002, and Blue Wonder's advanced baseband solution.

Lime Microsystems' LMS6002 is a multi-band multi-standard RF transceiver IC designed for femtocells and small cell basestations. The highly frequency agile transceiver operates at user-selectable frequencies between 375MHz and 4GHz and is suitable for 3G, WiMAX, and LTE standards. Blue Wonder's advanced baseband solution is a complete LTE subsystem that can be integrated in System on Chip platforms. It provides a 3GPP Release 8 TDD and RFF multi-mode solution, up to category 4 and is designed for low power consumption. Blue Wonder will provide an FPGA based development system, which includes an interface to Lime's LMS6002 transceiver to allow all required interoperability tests.
