CommAgility, a maker of signal processing hardware for wireless and other applications, and MIMOon GmbH, a software vendor for LTE small cells and terminals, have revealed that MIMOon's mi!SmallCellPHY software will be fully integrated and tested with CommAgility's AMC-D24A4-RF4 AdvancedMC module. This is intended for LTE applications including eNodeB implementations, test equipment, specialised systems and R&D projects, creating a complete LTE physical layer solution ready to add L2/L3 stacks.

The PHY software is supplied in binary format integrated with the card, and no up-front licence fee is charged, only a run-time license. This typically saves hundreds of thousands of dollars for OEMs developing LTE applications, making new projects more affordable. By being already integrated and tested, the solution saves substantial engineering effort, further reducing development costs and enabling OEMs to deliver projects more quickly.

MIMOon's mi!SmallCellPHY software provides a complete LTE physical layer for pico-, femto and micro-cells on SDR, DSP and ASIC platforms, the company stated. The software is fully compliant with 3GPP Releases 8 and 9, and provides a flexible, scalable solution that is optimised for low memory, processing power and power consumption.

CommAgility's AMC-D24A4-RF4 is a double-width AMC module based around Texas Instruments' (TI's) TMS320TCI6636 SoC, which contains eight TMS320C66x DSP cores, four ARM Cortex-A15 cores and wireless accelerators. For additional processing, the AMC-D24A4-RF4 also provides two TI TMS320C6678 multicore DSPs and a Xilinx Kintex-7 FPGA. The module includes a highly flexible 4x4 RF interface. For applications requiring external remote radio heads, multiple CPRI interfaces are available, and the card is available without integrated RF as the AMC-D24A4.

The module is aimed at 4G LTE, LTE Advanced and 5G systems that require MIMO technologies, and enables complete RF to Layer 3 wireless base station functionality to be implemented on a single card. The solution will be available in mid-2014.
