DSP Core Integrated Into Processors For 3G Wireless Terminal Apps

The company's newest DSP core will be incorporated into its SoftFone family of baseband processors for 3G applications, such as wireless terminals. The DSP core steams from a programmable architecture jointly developed by the firm and Intel Corp. Embedded in a SoftFone baseband processor, the core performs such as signal modulation, channel equalization, and speech coding to deliver voice capabilities and 3G high-speed data services. Third-generation systems will enable consumers to use their cell phones, PDAs and other wireless Internet devices to place phone calls, surf the web, or download and play video, audio and multimedia content. The SoftFone 3G baseband processor takes advantage of the features of the DSP core, including processing speeds up to 600 MMACs, dynamic power management which scales power consumption to the processing task, enhanced instructions for multimedia data types, and efficient C/C++ programming capability.
