mimoOn releases LTE small cell software for latest Texas Instruments DSP

mimoOn, a leader in LTE software products for software defined radio (SDR) platforms, has announced that its 4G LTE PHY and Protocol Stack software for small cells is ready for the newest generation of Texas Instruments’ TMS320TCI66 DSPs. The complete software solution comprises the proven PHY software with a highly efficient and small footprint protocol stack, running on the same chip. This allows for reduced bill of materials in the highly cost-sensitive small cell market.

“Knowing the emerging small cell market will be extremely competitive and cost-sensitive, our engineers took the challenge to make the smallest, most efficient protocol stack possible,” says mimoOn CEO Dirk Friebel. “We have recently achieved first call and are seeing throughput that fulfills the 4G promise to consumers.”

The Germany-based company started working on its advanced PHY architecture over five years ago. The partnership with Texas Instruments delivers mimoOn software to the top tier small cell OEMs around the world. A demonstration of the PHY and protocol stack, as well as mimoOn’s other software products can be seen at the annual Mobile World Congress. The Mobile World Congress is the world’s leading conference and exhibition for the mobile industry with over 60,000 attendees expected this year.
