From smartphones to bases stations, from machine-to-machine (M2M) communications to utility infrastructure – connected cities, workplaces, homes, and vehicles demand intelligent, scalable solutions for wide area networks.
For the designer, this means building ever-more complex wireless SoCs that combine performance and flexibility with scalability and optimized efficiency. And that means getting the right balance between hardware and software.
This process can be greatly simplified by choosing from a wide variety of processor and hardware IP that is optimized for advanced wireless communications applications and that:
- Supports different modes of operation and different communication standards
- Integrates powerful vector capabilities alongside general computation engines
- Combines the hardware platform with a wide range of readily available PHY and MAC software IP
- Is backed by access to advanced support tools, including reference platforms and software development kits
