picoChip has launched the industry’s first fully-featured LTE development system for small cells, helping original equipment manufacturers bring to market the next generation of highly cost-effective LTE basestations.
 
The PC9608/9 accelerates time to market of small form factor LTE products (“Home eNode B”) optimized for metropolitan, enterprise and residential applications.
 
The system integrates baseband, software stack and RF, reducing barriers to entry for new suppliers developing basestations and enabling carriers to test the deployment of these new network architectures.
 
The core of the product is a carrier class software-defined LTE modem that is compliant with 3GPP standards and can be rapidly optimized and customized via an application programming interface.
