MANHASSET, N.Y. Datang Technology Co. Ltd. has extended its licensing agreement with LSI Logic to include the ZSP540 digital signal processor (DSP) for use in its 3G wireless applications.
Datang, a subsidiary of China-based Datang Telecom Technology, selected the ZSP540 core from LSI Logic (Milpitas, Calif.) for its ability to deliver quad-MAC capabilities at the system cost of a dual-MAC core. The core also consumes low power and achieves best-in-class code density, according to LSI, making it ideal for the demands of high bandwidth 3G baseband processing with media-rich applications.
Datang will also use the ZSP core in a number of other applications requiring cost-effective, high performance parallel DSP computing performance.
The ZSP540, like all cores in LSI'S ZSP family of licensable, industry-standard processors, can run software written for other ZSP cores, providing a scalable path for core selection with maximum design reusability.
