Picochip and Hong Kong Applied Science and Technology Research Institute (ASTRI) have completed the design and validation of the PC8609, the industry’s first commercial-grade LTE FDD femtocell physical layer software.
 
The PC8609 software is now generally available to Picochip’s customers around the world.
 
To ensure that the PC8609 software is ready for FDD femtocell commercial deployment, the two companies have completed more than 10,000 tests to validate the software integrity.
 
The level of maturity brought from this test effort has led to the successful integration of the PC8609 with several protocol stack software.
