Marvell delivers multicore FDD/TDD LTE, TD-SCDMA and WCDMA mobile platform

MOBILE WORLD CONGRESS 2012, BARCELONA, SPAIN: Marvell announced a complete reference design featuring high performance multicore application processing and a world modem including 4G Frequency Division Duplexing (FDD) / Time Division Duplexing (TDD) Long-Term Evolution (LTE), Time Division Synchronous Code Division Multiple Access (TD-SCDMA) and Wideband Code Division Multiple Access (WCDMA) in a single platform to provide a high performance, low cost and robust turn-key silicon solution for globally connected smartphones and tablets.

"Leveraging Marvell's leadership in multicore processors and connectivity technologies, I believe now our customers around the world can utilize a single platform to deliver high-performance, low-power, cost-effective, multicore, FDD / TDD LTE smartphones and tablets to meet global consumers' increasing demands for rich and live streaming content," said Weili Dai, co-founder of Marvell. "Marvell is leading the pack in deploying the most cost-effective multimode LTE solution to accelerate global mass adoption for the connected lifestyle."

Comprised of the Marvell ARMADA PXA2128 application processor featuring Marvell's Hybrid-SMP Technology- a new symmetric multiprocessing (SMP) hardware and software architecture that addresses the conflicting low-power and high-performance needs of today's mobile processors - and its PXA1801 multimode LTE modem - which provides support for all global broadband standards including FDD and TDD LTE network, DC-HSPA+ (Dual Carrier Evolved High-Speed Packet Access) and TD-SCDMA – the integrated solution provides Marvell's customers a complete mobile platform enabling the "Connected Lifestyle."

The Marvell reference design includes the company's latest power management and Radio Frequency (RF) technologies, as well as its wireless connectivity solution comprised of Wi-Fi, Bluetooth (BT) and FM, delivering original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) a turn-key platform that improves R&D efficiency by eliminating repetitive engineering cycles and speeding overall time-to-market for new devices – a significant advantage in the fast-paced, constantly evolving mobile industry. The combination reduces the total Bill of Materials (BOM) enabling the lowest cost for this category of performance and function.
