Another, the biggest challenge is programmable brandband PA. Any company is focus on it?

From my point of view, I guess it use SDR tech to implement muli-mode/multi-frequency support, otherwise the cost is very high out of our mind. Perhaps Marvell use some licensable IP or acquired some silence company we don’t know. Or just programmable multi-core HW accelerator cluster, plus task management MCU. But we never hear any news about the license or acquirement, I predictor Marvell will merge Tensilica before, but not true. But I think the real war is beginning for Marvell, because there is no any power consumption info, so perhaps the power is little big for them.

Fully agree, what about the architecture, technology node, power consumption etc.?

@George I notice the Gilder Cremers Fund took an equity position in ASOCS earlier in the year.

@George Thanks for the pointer. We have written about ASOCS in the past including their collaboration with Renesas.

This article is just producing the news taken off from some financial network. Interesting details as to what processor is used and which interconnect it deploys and what is the RF processing engine is lacking. How many billion wireless chips sell per year?

Qualcomm Gobi 2000 (cir 2009, Gobi 3000 (current). Check it out http://www.qualcomm.com/products-services/chipsets/connectivity/gobi Marvell is a bit late in the game. The Gobi has all the Wireless radio (plus Wifi) protocols (and the upgraded version has LTE) plus a 12 channel GPS receiver. I have one in my Motorola Xoom.

The Israeli company ASOCS has developed a software defined radio chipset (potentially a chip) that can support all the above standards, any three concurrently, and is programmable for future baseband protocols. George Gilder

You can't call it a "world modem" without the support for CDMA 1X network.
