picoChipâ€™s PC960x product received the Best Enabling Product/Technology Award at the Informa LTE Awards during LTE World Summit in Amsterdam this year. The PC960x is the industryâ€™s first reference design for an LTE â€œsmall cellâ€ basestation or femtocell. The PC960x is a significant step forward as a technology enabler: allowing carriers to build their LTE networks in a faster and more cost-effective way than traditional approaches.
Developed in conjunction with Continuous Computing and Cavium Networks, the PC960x enables OEMs to move ahead with small cell LTE development immediately. Delivering full evaluation and prototyping capabilities, this accelerates time to market for small form factor LTE products (â€œHome eNode Bâ€) optimized for metropolitan, enterprise and residential applications. This dramatically changes the economics of LTE deployments: reducing capex, opex and accelerating time to market for operators.
