Advancements in the Base Station chip-sets is extremely required to be the maximum efficiency out of it, but simultaneously it is also required that the BTS will support all previous and future technologies and standards, by one or another way, otherwise it will be very difficulty situation in a country like India where the service provider will be having their presence thought the country.

Our Company is pleased for being mentioned upon the collaboration with Texas Instruments and would like to highlight that the correct name is Azcom Technology and not Axcom, as reported in the article herein. For further details, please go at http://www.azcom.it.

I wonder what FPGA companies such as Xilinx and Altera have to say about this two-horse race? Any comments out there?

I do apologize for my misspelling. It's my bad. Sorry!

Why would they have anything to say about it? Making a "base station on a chip" is way outside of their core businesses.

I think KB3001 does have a point; FPGA guys are also trying to get into the base station market by replacing DSP and Microprocessor functionalities. But what determines the winner in the end is not the hardware functionalities; but credible tools and ecosystem they can offer on the network equipment market.

Very good write up. We in Epigon (www.epigon.in) use Virtex 5 FPGA for OFDM Phy. For higher bandwidth ( may be higher side of 1.5 mbps), we found even Virtex 5 not able to provide computing resources. My question is : How much bandwidth processing cab be done in these two DSP's ( from TI and Freescale). In a sense, is it possible to mod and demod more then 2 mbps OFDM phy in the above DSP's. In case yes, then epigon will be happy to migrate from FPGA's to DSP's. For low bandwidth Modems we use TI5510 DSP and Blackfin DSP. you can reach me at jk@epigon.in

Very good write up. "Freescale is rolling out a scalable, multimode wireless base station ....designed to scale from small cells (Femto and Pico) .... " the Femto cell referred here is what Qualcomm also is after??? Can you please also write on where does Qualcomm stand in this race?

How about LSI? As we know LSI also participate into this game and release ACP multicore and Starcore DSP. It seems they are targeting wirelesss application too. How to compare with TI/Freescale?

I believe the FPGA players have a challenge defending their base station position because their chips cost so much. Moving to CPU+DSP SoCs should be able to reduce the semiconductor bill of materials by something like **90%**.
