DUISBURG, GERMANY: Long-Term-Evolution (LTE) software-licensing specialist mimoOn is collaborating with Texas Instruments on 3GPP-compliant LTE physical-layer (PHY) software. TI plans to offer complete PHY software for LTE Releases 8 and 9 for its KeyStone multicore architecturewith a specific focus on its TMS320TCI6612 and TMS320TCI6614 system-on-a-chip (SoC).

These SoCs are designed for small-cell base stations in the enterprise, pico, and metro markets. According to Thomas Kaiser, Chief Executive Officer of mimoOn, "We expect the LTE small-cell market to grow substantially in the coming years. With a first design-in already confirmed, together we are enabling OEMs to take delivery of a pre-integrated, fully optimized, and production-ready small-cell solution."
