Tensilica expands wireless baseband business unit
June 09, 2010 // Phil Ling
Tensilica has announced that it has expanded its baseband business unit and hired Eric F. Dewannain as vice president and general manager.
Dewannain was previously general manager of the custom ASIC business unit at Texas Instruments and prior to that was general manager of the cable broadband communications business unit. Dewannain has extensive business experience in mobile wireless infrastructure and broadband communications.
Tensilica's customers have used the company's customizable dataplane processor (DPU) technology to design their own digital signal processors (DSPs) for the past 10 years. Two years ago, Tensilica formed its baseband business unit and has since enjoyed great success as the rising star in programmable baseband signal processing. Customers include Fujitsu, Huawei, NEC, Panasonic, and many other major undisclosed companies, all of whom are engaged in LTE (Long-Term Evolution) and 4G baseband chip design with Tensilica's DPUs and ConnX baseband DSPs. Tensilica claims its DPUs and ConnX baseband DSPs can be customized to provide greater power and performance efficiency than standard DSPs.
"Because of our solid DPU foundation and success in baseband signal processing, we've been able to ramp up quickly and add top engineering talent to our team," stated Jack Guedj, Tensilica's president and CEO. "Now, with Eric, we're reaching critical mass with strong leadership to help us continue our growth trajectory."
