Vendor Tips
From EE TIMES (Europe)
Wave of consolidation set to hit 4G chip sector
by John Walko, 10/31/2008 5:22 PM
"CPE and handset baseband devices implement the OFDM physical layer (PHY) in hardware or software with DSP cores. Vendors with hardware-based solutions include:
Fujitsu Ltd.,
NextWave Wireless Inc.,
Runcom Technologies Ltd.,
Sequans Communications, and
Wavesat Inc.

Wavesat has begun shipping a DSP-based solution, joining
Altair International Inc.,
Comsys Communications & Signal Processing Ltd., and
Intel Corp.

NXP Semiconductors is developing a DSP-based solution
that would support most 2G and 3G networks, as well as WiMax and LTE.
This group from NXP is now part of the
STMicroelectronics/Ericsson AB joint venture announced in August 2008.

Most base-station baseband solutions are fully programmable using proprietary cores for media access control (MAC), PHY, and networking functions.

Leading vendors are:
DesignArt Networks,
picoChip Designs Ltd.,
Runcom Technologies Ltd., and
Wintegra Inc.,
as well as general-purpose CPU/DSP suppliers such as
Freescale Semiconductor Inc. and
Texas Instruments Inc..
All these companies have made significant investments in production-ready software for WiMax, and most are developing software for LTE.

The report notes that RF front-end devices require a different skill set and technology. In addition to several baseband vendors, analog specialists
Analog Devices Inc.,
Lime Microsystems,
PMC-Sierra Inc. and
Sierra Monolithics Inc.
have RF ICs for WiMax and other wireless networks, including LTE."
