Renesas Mobile makes its mark
February 08, 2011 // Phil Ling
The first product launch following the acquisition of Nokia's Wireless Modem Team by Renesas Electronics, which coincided with the creation of Renesas Mobile, has been announced days prior to the start of Mobile World Congress. The LTE triple-mode modem platform integrates a single-chip triple-mode modem baseband processor that supports LTE/HSPA+/GSM, RF transceiver ICs, high power amplifiers, power management devices and related software.
The platform supports major mobile OS's including Android, MeeGo and Symbian as well as Linux and Windows Mobile on PCs. The hope is this will allow easy integration as an embedded modem, including standalone, or as a companion to an applications processor in high-end smartphones or tablet devices.
It also supports TD-LTE and FDD-LTE cat 3 (100Mbps downlink (DL) / 50Mbps uplink (UL)) along with HSPA+ features such as DC-HSDPA cat 24 and HSUPA cat 7 giving 3G data rates of 42Mbps (DL) /11.5Mbps (UL) respectively with global coverage through its unique RF design.
Jean-Marie Rolland, Executive Vice President and Chief Technology Officer of Renesas Mobile, stated that the company's aim is to become the leading supplier in the LTE market.
The triple-mode modem platform will be available for sampling in March 2011 as a reference design and comes complete with consulting services to enable rapid time to production. Mass production is expected to start in late 2011.
