TI Wimax kit Edit
Texas Instruments unveiled its Wave 2 software and development tools platform which, it claimed, can eliminate over 15 years of development effort. Based on the optimised TMS320TC16487 DSP, TI says it will allow OEMs to get their systems up and running quickly to capture the growing WiMAX market.
TI on LTE Edit
To address the high level of complexity in LTE, TI has developed the TCI6487 multicore DSP with embedded accelerators for 2G, 3G and 4G wireless base station standards that are used in baseband processing. The TCI6487 is the industry's first multi-core digital signal processor (DSP) that has three 'C64+ DSP cores' and provides a total of 3 Gigahertz (GHz) of DSP processing power with which to tackle LTE baseband tasks such as MAC and PHY processing.
Texas instruments Edit
By combining the math of PHY processing with the logic of MAC processing onto a single chip, Texas Instruments has advanced the functionality of digital signal processors (DSPs) for complex, multiprocessing beyond 3G cellular infrastructure applications such as HSPA/HSPA+, LTE and WiMAX Wave 2. This new single-core 1 GHz DSP also delivers high data throughput and reduced latency for high quality of service, and potentially eliminates the need for a costly RISC co-processor.
