Tensilica Inc. and mimoOn have revealed a partnership to offer designers with what the companies say as the only comprehensive hardware/software licensable IP solution for LTE and LTE-Advanced chip designs. As a result of the deal, Tensilica is now the exclusive DSP IP vendor for mimoOn's LTE user equipment and eNodeB (base station) PHY software products.

mimoOn's mi!SmallCellPHY, mi!MobilePHY and mi!SmallCellSTACK LTE eNodeB Protocol Stack software products have been optimised for Tensilica's ConnX Baseband Engine (BBE) family and ConnX DPU IP cores. Customers will also have access to mimoOn's complete LTE software portfolio, product support and design services, which helps customers reduce risk and shorten time-to-market, while allowing a high degree of product differentiation.

"This agreement is powerful," stated Will Strauss, president of Forward Concepts and leading DSP analyst. "mimoOn is very well respected for their software, and Tensilica is already providing their DSPs for LTE designs. Now any company looking to enter the LTE or LTE-Advanced market can be assured of a comprehensive hardware/software solution."

"Tensilica has become our IP partner of choice based on the quality and the low power/area of their DSP IP cores and the interest we've seen in the marketplace for their hardware solutions," said Dirk Friebel, CEO of mimoOn. "Their BBE family of DSP and function specific DPU cores is ideally suited for both handsets and base stations, bringing a low-power, highly programmable solution to market."
