TI and Xinwei Accelerate Broadband Coverage to Millions of Chinese Households

Texas Instruments and Beijing Xinwei Telecom Technology have announced that their next generation McWiLL/SCDMA macro base stations will enable millions of Chinese households to receive voice and data traffic at higher speed, while lowering the cost of deployment for the country's service providers.

Xinwei's next generation macro base stations will deploy Texas Instruments's (TI) multicore 3GHz-performing TMS320TCI6487 processor. With three cores running at 1GHz each, this wireless infrastructure baseband product enables base station manufacturers to extend their existing designs while entering into new markets, requiring small form factor applications with scaleable, flexible solution.

Eldon Teng, director of Asia sales and marketing for Texas Instruments, said: "We are very pleased to enable Xinwei to deliver this exceptional technology to the people of China. As a committed participant in China's communications infrastructure growth, it is an honor to provide our customers with the best DSP technology available."
