Public Access Femtocell Solution Enables 32 Channels for Simultaneous Voice, HSPA+ Data

Tue, 09/14/2010 - 9:19am
femtocell system on chippicoChip unveiled the PC333, a System-on-Chip (SoC) device specifically designed to extend the femtocell into the realm of public access infrastructure such as metro femto, rural femto and strand-mounted systems. The PC333 SoC is asserted to be the first femtocell chip to support 32 channels (scalable to 64) for simultaneous voice and HSPA+ data, the first to support MIMO, the first to support soft-handover and the first to conform to the Local Area Basestation (LABS) standard. The chip enables small basestations for urban hot-spots, city-centers or public access to be made and deployed a low cost. LABS is the 3GPP definition for systems with higher performance than home-basestations, allowing higher capacity, 120 km/h mobility and +24 dBm output power for greater than 2 km range. The PC333 supports 32 channels, each with both voice and HSPA+ data and, with the company’s smartSignaling technology, in excess of 400 simultaneous smartphone users. Two of the devices can also be cascaded to support 64 active channels.
