BARCELONA, SPAIN: LSI Corp. has updated its silicon portfolio of media, advanced communications, content processing, and link communication processing solutions for next-generation mobile networks.
The entire portfolio is now based on a unified asymmetric multicore architecture, making LSI the industry’s first to offer a cost-effective single platform for development of an end-to-end multi-radio wireless infrastructure, and establishing the foundation for development of the industry’s first scalable wireless base station on a chip (BSoC).
"Last year, we developed a strategy to create a family of communications products based on a unified architecture that would serve as a cornerstone for continuous improvements in performance, lower power and cost," said Charlie Kawwas, vice president, Marketing, Networking Components Division, LSI. "This vision is now a reality, and LSI has become the premiere provider of end-to-end solutions for wireless systems developers."
As part of the new portfolio, LSI has announced three next-generation, asymmetric multicore solutions developed on a unified architecture:
* The Axxia Communication Processor family, featuring groundbreaking LSI Virtual PipelineTM message-passing technology and award-winning Tarari deep packet inspection technology.
* StarPro SP2704 and SP2716 media and baseband processors, which can support more than 3,000 simultaneous gateway channels per device, enabling a single multi-radio access network.
* A new link communication processor (LCP) that allows network traffic to be easily and efficiently migrated from existing TDM networks to next-generation Ethernet and IP networks.
