Low-cost femtocell system-on-chip

24 Sep 2008

DesignArt Networks introduced its DAN2200 Wimax femtocell system-on-chip (SoC), touting it as the first complete single-chip femtocell SoC that allows equipment vendors to break the $100 unit price barrier.

Complete femtocell designs consume less than 5 watts of total power, while providing plenty of spare processing power to run embedded high-capacity networking and media streaming applications.

They can easily be integrated with home gateway equipment to facilitate the delivery of high-definition media to fixed and mobile wireless broadband devices.

This results in faster adoption of Wimax femtocells in residential, business, and hot-spot applications, according to DesignArt Networks.

But mobile operators are inhibited from effectively implement subsidized business models to serve demand for indoor wireless broadband coverage because of the $100 unit price point from femtocell vendors, according to the company.

Certified for IEEE 802.16e Wave 2, the DAN2200 delivers non-blocking Wimax performance for up to 25 simultaneous subscribers, according to DesignArt.
