Datang Mobile Communications Equipment Co. Ltd, one of China's largest government-owned telecom equipment manufacturers, has selected Freescale's MSC8122 quad-core DSP based on StarCore technology for its Time Division-Synchronous CDMA (TD-SCDMA) Node-B base stations.

According to the press release, Datang Mobile is offering what's touted as the world's first TD-SCDMA 3G end-to-end systems solutions, which combine TD-SCDMA base stations and handsets. The technology offers high spectrum efficiency and optimally supports dense services in populated areas, effectively alleviating spectrum resource shortages and limitations for carriers.

"As commercial use of the TD-SCDMA standard gains momentum in China, Freescale is working closely with leading telecom equipment makers like Datang to support system-level solutions that speed 3G network deployment," said David Perkins, senior vice president and general manager of Freescale's networking and computing systems group. "Freescale looks forward to working with Datang to realize the truly profound opportunity that this standard holds for the Chinese market."

The adoption of TD-SCDMA technology promises to dramatically reduce air interferences and increase system capacities, which are highly suitable for operators' asymmetrical data services. The technology is proficient in dynamically adjusting data transmission rates with uplink and downlink. It also efficiently handles circuit and IP-switched voice and video data payloads, as well as packet data to and from the Internet.

"Freescale's MSC8122 quad-core DSP offers the optimal balance of high performance, low power and programmability that Datang needs for its next-generation TD-SCDMA Node-B basestation designs," commented Li Feng, vice president of Datang Mobile.
