Texas Instruments (TXN) and Beijing Xinwei Telecom Technology Company announced that the next generation McWiLL/SCDMA macro base stations will enable millions of Chinese households to receive voice and data traffic at exceptional speeds, while lowering the cost of deployment for the country's service providers.
"As a leading provider of base station technology, Xinwei looks not only at today's needs of service providers and consumers, but future needs as well" said Zhiyun Liu, vice president of Xinwei. "TI's complete signal chain solution — including DSPs, software and analog — enables Xinwei to deliver a family of base stations with additional features and capacity while reducing the overall system cost."
By leveraging TI's 3GHz, powerful multicore DSPs, optimized software and analog signal chain components, the companies say Xinwei can not only meet the aggressive deployment schedules leading up to the 2008 Beijing Olympics but also offer a migration path to Beyond3G, including TD-LTE. SCDMA/McWiLL incorporates advanced technologies including smart antenna, software radio, CS-OFDMA, dynamic channel allocation, adaptive modulation, QoS/GoS, and enhanced spatial nulling technology.
Xinwei's next generation macro base stations will deploy TI's multicore 3GHz-performing TMS320TCI6487 processor. With three cores running at 1 GHz each, this wireless infrastructure baseband product enables base station manufacturers to extend their existing designs while entering into new markets, requiring small form factor applications with a scaleable, flexible solution.
