TD-SCDMA Femtocell Reference Design

The PC8808 TD-SCDMA femtocell reference design, from picoChip, is the first design to support the TD-SCDMA standard. Femtocells (or 3G access points) are low-cost basestations optimized for deployment inside buildings to improve coverage and data rates. TD-SCDMA is the third major 3G standard, and is expected to launch in China this summer.

The PC8808 TD-SCDMA femtocell reference design supports HSDPA and is the industry’s lowest cost complete solution. The picoChip single-chip platform can integrate both Node B and protocol stack, and can easily integrate back into the core network using a number of different architectures including SIP, UMA or Iu. The single-chip PC202-based design is software defined and delivers baseband complete with upper layer software stacks included.
