Mindspeed’s products are used in wireless infrastructure and small cell base-stations. The company's ARM-based processing solutions include low-power, multi-core digital signal processor system-on-chip (SoC) solutions for fixed and mobile (3G/4G) carrier infrastructure (the Transcede® family) and Picochip's SoCs for 3G (HSPA) femtocells and small cells.
Mindspeed launched the Transcede® family of wireless baseband processor in 2010, including the single-core Transcede 3000, which serves the eNodeB processing needs of a picocell, while consuming less than 10 watts (W) of power, and the dual-core Transcede 4000, which delivers three sectors of LTE processing for macro cells serving thousands of subscribers. The Transcede 4000 integrates 26 programmable processors into 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, enabling equipment manufacturers to fully support the complete processing needs of single- and multi-sector base stations using the WCDMA/HSPA, LTE, LTE time-division duplex (TD-LTE), time division synchronous code division multiple access (TD-SCDMA, in China) and other air-interface standards.
The Transcede 4000 processor was honored as the Best Mobile Technology Breakthrough at the 2010 Mobile Excellence Awards
Following the acquisition of Picochip, that company's small cell SoC products are part of Mindspeed's Wireless Business Unit.
