Freescale’s QorIQ Qonverge Macrocell Base Station-on-Chip Wins 2013 LTE Visionary Award

Mobility Tech Zone has named Freescale Semiconductor’s QorIQ Qonverge B4860 macrocell system-on-chip as a recipient of the 2013 LTE Visionary Award. The prize recognizes products that have advanced the state of LTE technology during the previous year.

Mobility Tech Zone is the leading website dedicated to the mobile broadband industry and is sponsored by TMC, a global integrated media company, and Crossfire Media, an integrated marketing company with a core focus on technology.

“Freescale’s achievements in advancing 4G through LTE development are impressive and, as such, the company was selected as a recipient of the Mobility Tech Zone LTE Visionary Award,” said Carl Ford, co-founder and community developer, Crossfire Media. “Freescale is a true innovator and one to watch for the next evolution of solutions.”

Introduced last year, the QorIQ Qonverge B4860 macrocell system-on-chip is engineered to help mobile operators accommodate rapid adoption of 4G data-centric wireless devices, while reducing costs associated with 3G deployments. The B4860 delivers optimal performance for macrocell base station applications, utilizing Freescale’s intelligent integration capabilities and advanced 28 nm process technology to deliver a significant leap forward in computational capacity.

“The Mobility Tech Zone LTE Visionary Award reinforces Freescale’s role as a proven and committed innovator in the wireless infrastructure market,” said Tareq Bustami, vice president of product management for Freescale’s Digital Networking business. “Freescale is honored to receive this prestigious recognition and looks forward to even more LTE milestones in 2013.”

The B4860 macrocell SoC integrates four dual-thread, 64-bit e6500 Power Architecture® cores with AltiVec SIMD engines running at up to 1.8 GHz. The e6500 core is ideal for Layer 2, control and transport processing, and incorporates an enhanced version of the proven, high-performance and widely adopted AltiVec vector processing unit, which boosts performance for Layer 2 scheduling algorithms. The B4860 also integrates six high-performance SC3900 StarCore FVP cores running at 1.2 GHz. Together, these technologies provide a balanced, programmable architecture for all baseband digital processing layers for next-generation base stations.

The B4860 macrocell system-on-chip is the flagship member of Freescale’s QorIQ Qonverge portfolio of software-compatible base station-on-chip products. The product family is built on a common architecture integrating Power Architecture microprocessors, StarCore digital signal processors and wireless acceleration technologies on a single chip. The QorIQ Qonverge architecture is based on proven technologies deployed in base stations of all sizes and supports software reuse, helping customers extend the value of their R&D investments.
