ROSH HA'AYIN, ISRAEL: ASOCS, the leading developer of wireless MultiComms processors and system solutions for handheld devices has announced the immediate availability of its CMMB solution, both as a software upgrade to its current MP100 product line offering as well as a full IP solution for third parties.
The software defined radio implementation features ASOCS advanced algorithm approaches including: Per Channel Condition Optimization (PCCO) and Channel Condition Fast Identification (CCFI).
"Our ModemX platform enables us to use different channel estimation (CE) algorithms optimized for different channel conditions, including: Maximal processing gain CE - utilizing all time/frequency training signals, Dynamic CE for fast varying channels and Open loop CE - for long channels that are not supported by the regular pilots. We call this unique unfair advantage PCCO(TM)," explains Tal Kaitz, Director of modem development in ASOCS.
"We can furthermore apply real time identification of channel characteristics for a fast adaptation of the receiver algorithms for any specific scenario - an advanced feature which we call CCFI."
Doron Solomon, ASOCS CTO, further elaborates: "While the traditional hardware based solutions are focused solely on worst case scenarios and trading off performance for cost optimization, ASOCS Software Defined Radio technology ModemX enables us to work wonders when it comes to optimizing high performance Mobile TV receivers in general and CMMB in particular, all within the performance umbrella of our MultiComms solution, and without any hardware change."
The ASOCS MP100 MultiComms processor introduces a revolutionary approach to wireless communication - a single chip running multiple software-reconfigurable modems concurrently providing low latency air-interface switching, minimal power consumption, and enabling user-transparent access to the internet.
ASOCS has recently announced a second reference design targeted at the new China Mobile network. ASOCS has already introduced together with partners a Mobile TV (CMMB), GSM/GPRS/EDGE and 3G (TD-SCDMA) all in one design exclusively for that market.
