LTE Small-Cell Software Evolves

LTE Small-Cell Software Evolves

The mi!SmallCell software products from mimiOn now support the Texas Instruments TCI6636 wireless system-on-chip (SoC), which targets ultra-high-capacity small-cell and “green power” macro-cell infrastructure applications. The foundation of the software package is mi!SmallCellPHY, the time-critical physical-layer (PHY) software that takes advantage of the accelerators and processing power of the eight TI DSP cores in the TCI6636. Via the Small Cell Forum-defined interface, the PHY connects with mi!SmallCellSTACK, the upper protocol layers for the LTE basestation. The products comply with the 3GPP Release 9 specification, with evolution to Release 10 planned for late 2013. The mi!SmallCell product family is planned for availability on the TCI6636 in mid-2013.
