Texas Instruments Incorporated (TI) has unveiled the TMS320TCI6612 and TMS320TCI6614 system-on-chips (SoC) for developers of metro, pico and enterprise small cell base stations.

TI’s new small cell SoCs are enabled with production ready software and are based on TI’s KeyStone multicore architecture. These SoCs encompass a mix of processing elements, including radio accelerators, network and security coprocessors, combined fixed-and floating-point digital signal processors (DSPs) and an ARM RISC processor.

The devices are powered by an all-inclusive software suite, based on TI’s wireless application specific libraries, and a full portfolio of analog products such as data converters, RF products, power management, clocks and amplifiers.

The TCI6612 and TCI6614’s processing elements include two or four TMS320C66x fixed- and floating-point DSP cores, as well as a power efficient ARM Cortex A8 RISC processor. The ARM core is typically used for control plane processing. The remaining base station functions, including all baseband and packet processing, are handled by the DSP cores coupled with configurable wireless, network and security coprocessors.

The TCI6612 and TCI6614 SoCs are code compatible with TI’s entire KeyStone multicore portfolio, as well the TMS320C64x DSP generation.
