HetNet Solutions Portfolio for Accelerating Deployment of Next Gen Wireless Infrastructure
Page 1 of 1
A portfolio of programmable solutions is aimed at building smart, low-power cellular equipment needed to support the global rollout of Heterogeneous Networks (HetNet). In collaboration with Azcom Technology, the HetNet Solutions Portfolio from Lattice Semiconductor enables system designers to implement best-in-class solutions for connectivity, control path and power management while accelerating their development with system-level reference designs for multi-mode LTE small cells.
Service providers around the world are deploying a mosaic of wireless equipment in both indoor and outdoor environments including office buildings, public facilities and underground areas to support the explosive growth in mobile data traffic. According to the Small Cell Forum in a report released at this year’s Mobile World Congress, the small cell market alone is expected to generate $22 billion by 2016.
The Lattice HetNet Solutions Portfolio enables designers of small cells, low-power remote radio heads, distributed antenna systems and active antennas, to achieve the lowest BOM, power consumption and smallest footprint for the connectivity, control path and power management functions of their systems. Complementing the ASICs and SoCs used for complex data path functions, Lattice’s industry-leading FPGAs, CPLDs and programmable power management devices meet requirements for small form factor, low-cost and ultra-low power.
Combined with soft IP for connectivity, control path and data path functions optimized for low complexity HetNet applications, the LatticeECP3, MachXO2 and MachXO3 FPGA families, Lattice power management devices and Azcom reference platform give developers everything they need for affordable innovation of HetNet systems.
The Lattice HetNet Solutions Portfolio is supported by the Lattice Diamond software. Optimized for Lattice’s low- and ultra-low-density FPGAs, the software comprises leading-edge design and implementation tools optimized to allow electronic system designers to meet their power, size and cost goals.
