NEWPORT BEACH, USA: Mindspeed Technologies Inc., a leading supplier of semiconductor solutions for network infrastructure applications, announced that the company’s chief technical officer, James Johnston, will serve as a featured speaker and panelist at the Linley Tech Carrier Conference, June 7 and 8, 2011, at the Doubletree Hotel in San Jose, CA.
The Linley Tech Carrier Conference covers system design for wired and wireless infrastructure, including carrier Ethernet, optical transport, broadband infrastructure and wireless base stations. Johnston will serve as a panelist during a Wednesday, June 8, session on 4G mobile infrastructure demand, from 9:00 a.m. to 11:15 a.m. He also will participate in the question and answer portion of a session on Tuesday, June 7, from 10:20 a.m. to noon, which will be focused on wireless infrastructure trends.
“To accommodate the explosive growth of mobile data and video, mobile operators are migrating to a heterogeneous network environment featuring a broad distribution of macrocells, microcells, picocells and enterprise femtocells,” Johnston said. “During the Linley Tech Carrier Conference, I will be presenting the latest developments in network SoC solutions that are designed to overcome the computational complexities of 4G, while enabling this diverse new generation of base station platforms.”
Johnston will highlight the strategic differentiators of Mindspeed’s Transcede family of processors for original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) that are considering new 3G and 4G small cell architectures. Mindspeed’s Transcede 4000 SoC, which features 26 programmable processors in a single device, including two ARM Cortex A9 multi-core symmetric multiprocessing (SMP) reduced instruction set computer (RISC) processors, 10 CEVA digital signal processors (DSPs) and 10 DSP accelerators, was named “Best Mobile Technology Breakthrough” at the 2010 Mobile Excellence Awards (MEA).
