Operators are challenged to cost effectively keep ahead of the data deluge without compromising quality of service. 4G is needed because its packet-based nature gives operators a technological advantage in delivering data. TI addresses the challenges of 4G with its new TMS320TCI6616 System on Chip. This SoC combines unmatched DSP multicore performance with dedicated hardware coprocessors, all based on TI’s KeyStone multicore architecture specifically designed for efficient data movement. The TCI6616 is based on TI’s new TMS320C66x DSPs and delivers more than double the performance of any 3G/4G SoC in the market. The TCI6616 also boasts the industry’s first multicore DSP that processes both fixed and floating point math, an innovative capability that simplifies wireless base station software design.
