picoChip has rolled out its PC333, the first chip specifically designed to extend the femtocell into the realm of public access infrastructure such as metro femto, rural femto and strand-mounted systems.

The PC333 system-on-chip device is the first femtocell chip to support 32 channels (scalable to 64) for simultaneous voice and HSPA+ data.

The chip supports 32 channels, each with both voice and HSPA+ data and, with picoChip’s smartSignaling technology, in excess of 400 simultaneous smartphone users.

The PC333 is also said to be the first to support multiple input multiple output, the first to support soft-handover and the first to conform to the local area basestation standard.
