Webinar Alert: Tensilica Announces The Five Pitfalls of 4G Baseband SOC Design

SANTA CLARA, California, October 20 /PRNewswire/ -- Tensilica announces the following TechOnline Webinar:

    What:       The Five Pitfalls of 4G Baseband SOC Design Webinar

    When:       Tuesday, October 27, 2009 @ 11 am PT / 2 pm ET

                address above.

For the first time in memory, the industry is converging on a single wireless standard to cover all high data-rate cellular and wide-area-network needs - LTE. The emerging LTE standard is complex, requires extraordinary computation throughput and much better power efficiency than previous wireless baseband PHY subsystems. Because of the complexity, designers are taking many different approaches to chip design for LTE.

This webinar explores five significant challenges faced by designers of efficient digital basebands, including pitfalls in LTE's many modes, excessive cost and power, the "million MIPS" hurdle of Turbo decoding, and the dilemma of choosing the right communications among the LTE building blocks. This webinar uses detailed examples from an end-to-end LTE PHY baseband architecture to highlight the key dos and don'ts.
