The folks at Denmark-based Radiocomp have announced an integrated, rapid development solution for developers of WiMAX and 3GPP LTE base station equipment.
This ready-to-implement technology solution is comprised of Radiocomp's Open Base Station Architecture Initiative (OBSAI) and Common Public Ratio Interface (CPRI) IP cores in conjunction with Stratix IV GX FPGAs from Altera. The solution enables quick, efficient and reliable integration of OBSAI and CPRI interfaces for high-speed communication of digital radio and control data between wireless infrastructure base station modules.
The latest in OBSAI and CPRI technologies together with innovative Software Defined Radio (SDR) principals are critical components for the development of base station sub-modules and multi-band multi-mode remote radio head systems for standards such as WiMAX WCDMA/LTE, GSM/EDGE and CDMA2000.
Radiocomp's IP cores implement OBSAI RP3/RP3-01 v.4.0 and CPRI v3.0 specifications supporting all air interface standards. These IP cores incorporate performance targets, cost, size and flexibility into a single IP core solution together with a complete set of functionality compliant with the latest standards. Key features of the CPRI and OBSAI IP cores include:
- All-in-one package.
- Support for higher speed serial rates up to 6.144 Gbps.
- Smallest size and power consumption.
- Optimized Ethernet 10/100 MAC included .
- Flexible Antenna Carrier, O&M, timing and synchronization interfaces
