SUNNYVALE, USA: MoSys Inc., a leading provider of serial chip-to-chip communications solutions that deliver unparalleled bandwidth performance for next generation networking systems and advanced system-on-chip (SoC) designs, has partnered with Radiocomp and GDA Technologies to deliver a complete end to end connectivity solution focusing on the 3GPP long term evolution (LTE) and 4G cellular base station component market.
MoSys is partnering with Radiocomp to provide a complete Common Public Radio Interface (CPRI) and Open Base Station Architecture Initiative (OBSAI) solution and with GDA to provide a Serial Rapid I/O (SRIO) base-band solution. The combination of CPRI, OBSAI and SRIO will provide the end customer with a complete end to end wireless SerDes connectivity solution.
“The proliferation of 3G and 4G enabled wireless devices is creating exponential growth and demand for greater bandwidth and higher data rates,” said David DeMaria, vice president of Business Operations at MoSys. “By teaming up with Radiocomp and GDA, our joint IP solution will help component designers implement a highly configurable solution that supports today’s mobile and wireless standards, and ultimately improves wireless users’ experience by providing faster downloads of data and video.”
The new joint solution is compliant with version 4.1 of the CPRI specification and version RP3 v4.1 of the OBSAI specification, but is ready to support future protocol line rate extensions of up to 10 Gbps using Radiocomp’s market-leading IP, which will provide the high capacities needed to support the explosive growth in mobile broadband traffic.
By partnering to provide proven interoperability, application notes, and direct engineering assistance, MoSys, Radiocomp, and GDA will help designers speed time-to-market and reduce cost and risks while improving customer productivity and cost of ownership. The target market for the combined MoSys, Radiocomp, and GDA IP solution will be device and component manufacturers.
“We are experiencing a sharp rise in the demand for easy-to-use, off-the-shelf, and plug & play CPRI and OBSAI IP core solutions capable of boosting the bandwidths and data rates of mobile base stations. Our experience in developing and deploying CPRI & OBSAI-enabled LTE Remote Radio Heads shows that our IP solutions are fully functional and ready for use. The joint solution will help customers minimize design efforts, and greatly accelerate their time to market,” said Christian Lanzani, senior product manager at Radiocomp.
Isaac Sundarajan, CEO of GDA Technologies, a fully owned subsidiary of L&T Infotech, and executive VP of Product Engineering Services at L&T Infotech, stated: "As industry leaders in our respective technologies, we are offering customers silicon proven SIP in Serial RapidIO versions 1.3 and 2.1 uniquely with AXI to Serial RapidIO with DMA and DME bridging functions for the best solutions available on the market specifically for the growing Wireless Base Station SoCs. We are uniquely positioned because we are able to reduce integration cost and risk, while shortening time-to-market.:
