I represent DesignArt Networks as the company?s PR agency, Rainier Communications. You posed the question, of where there are other SoC solutions with base station functionality. The DAN2400 from DesignArt Networks has been available since 2008. It reduces entire macro base station designs to a single-SoC architecture, and leads to extremely cost-effective single-box Compact BTS equipment. Given typical SoC development cycles, and subsequent vendor design-in cycles, traditional SoC vendors are trailing the related rapidly growing Compact BTS market by as much as 4 years. First generation Compact BTS equipment from several vendors, based on the DAN2400 SoC, have been available since 2009 and in global deployments in more than 100 projects. Recently, DesignArt Networks announced the DAN3000 SoC family, their second generation product. The DAN3000 expands on DesignArt's field-experience, concurrently supporting multiple mobile technologies, such as GSM, HSPA, WiMAX, and LTE. The DAN3000 SoC family can power a complete 4-Sector macro base station - from just one single SoC. It eliminates air-conditioned shelters or cabinets for any type, size or architecture of 3G or 4G base station - enabling huge cost benefits and much increased deployment flexibility for operators. Second generation Compact BTS equipment, based on the DAN3000 SoC family, will start replacing traditional equipment form factors, built from multiple traditional SoCs, as early as in 2010.

Does anyone else know of announced plans to put a basestation on-a-chip?
