Renesas Electronics Corp.'s subsidiary Renesas Mobile Corp. debuts the SP2531, an LTE triple-mode modem platform that combines a single-chip triple-mode modem baseband processor supporting LTE/HSPA+/GSM with RF transceiver ICs, high power amplifiers, power management devices and related software.

SP2531 is Renesas Mobile's first modem product integrating technologies from Renesas Electronics and the latest generation of the advanced modem technology developed by the former Nokia Corp.'s Wireless Modem team, which it acquired in November 2010.

The LTE triple-mode modem platform is targeted at the convergence market which demands high performance, high levels of integration and a power-efficient implementation covering such key use cases as browsing and streaming. It also supports TD-LTE and FDD-LTE cat 3 (100Mbit/s downlink [DL] / 50Mbit/s uplink [UL]) along with HSPA+ features such as DC-HSDPA cat 24 and HSUPA cat 7, giving 3G data rates of 42Mbit/s (DL) /11.5Mbit/s (UL), respectively with global coverage through its unique RF design.

The LTE triple-mode modem platform offers extensive support for all major mobile OS including Android, MeeGo and Symbian as well as Linux and Windows Mobile on PCs, allowing easy integration as an embedded modem, including standalone, or as a companion to an applications processor in high-end smartphones or tablet devices.

The triple-mode modem platform will be available for sampling in March 2011 as a reference design and comes complete with consulting services to enable rapid time to production. Mass production is expected to commence in late 2011.
