Freescale Semiconductor announced the QorIQ Qonverge base station-on-chip devices. The QorIQ Qonverge processor family consists of four distinct products optimized for small cell (femto and pico) and large cell (metro and macro) applications. The family also supports remote radio head and emerging cloud-based radio access network (C-RAN) configurations. The first QorIQ Qonverge devices are the 45nm PSC9130/PSC9131 femto SoCs and PSC9132 picocell/enterprise femto SoC devices. They will be available in the second half of 2011. 28nm processors targeting larger cell (metro and macro) base stations will also be available later this year.
