|Freescale to showcase advanced embedded processing solutions at IEC's Broadband World Forum Europe|
MSC8156 multicore DSP named a finalist for prestigious IEC InfoVision award
PARIS (Broadband World Forum Europe) – Sept. 7, 2009 – Freescale Semiconductor plans a strong presence at the International Engineering Consortium (IEC) Broadband World Forum Europe 2009 with an array of advanced embedded processing solutions for the broadband industry. Freescale plans to demonstrate systems featuring processors built on Power Architecture® and StarCore® technologies, including the MSC8156 multicore DSP, which has been named an IEC InfoVision award finalist.
The IEC Broadband World Forum will be held Sept. 7-9 at the CNIT La Défense in Paris, France. In support of the show's theme of "Delivering the Promise," Freescale plans to demonstrate its latest solutions for mobile broadband, fixed broadband, broadband at home and broadband enablement services. Freescale also plans to participate in "The Future of Mobile Broadband: Coverage vs. Cost" workshop on Monday, Sept. 7 from 10 am – 12:30 pm.
Additionally, Freescale's MSC8156 multicore DSP device is a 2009 finalist in the Enabling Silicon and Component-Level Technologies category for the show's InfoVision Awards, which recognize advances in technologies, applications, products and services judged to be the most unique and beneficial to the information communication technology industry. Winners will be announced at the show on Sept. 7.
The MSC8156 DSP is designed to deliver the performance required for the creation of next-generation broadband wireless infrastructure equipment. The device integrates multi-standard baseband accelerators and combines six 1GHz cores based on Freescale's enhanced SC3850 StarCore DSP core technology. It is one of the industry's first DSPs based on 45-nm process technology, endowing the part with performance, energy efficiency and form factor advantages. It is designed to deliver the flexibility, integration and affordability required to develop base stations for 3G-LTE as well as mainstream and other next-generation wireless standards supporting the 3G-HSPA, TD-SCDMA, WiMAX, TDD-LTE and FDD-LTE standards.
"Freescale is dedicated to helping advance the worldwide broadband industry by providing high-performance, energy-efficient embedded intelligence to the world's top broadband equipment manufacturers," said Preet Virk, director of Freescale's Networking Segment. "This year at the Broadband World Forum, we're showcasing our latest products built on some of our most advanced processing solutions, including 45nm Power Architecture and StarCore technologies, offering industry-leading flexibility and performance."
