Mobile and Network Infrastructure

Ideal for High-Throughput Applications

Mobile and Network infrastructure designers need to deal with huge amounts of data processing in real time. Tensilica's DPUs are ideal because they can be optimized to exactly fit the datapath and to efficiently process the data, particularly for PHY and MAC layer control and packet processing, providing the optimum size, lowest power, and best performance.


See all the infrastructure products Tensilica's DSPs and DPUs have been designed into.

PHY

  • Ideal for FFT, MIMO, RAKE and more
  • Low-power, efficient DSP

MAC

  • Packet offload and other MAC-layer tasks
  • Also can perform control functions

Security

  • Implement complex security algorithms
  • Adapt quickly to changes
  • Perform valuable control functions

Applications Processing

  • Ideal for control of complex subsystems
  • Fully programmable in C
  • Full set of matching SW development tools

Voice

  • Efficient pre- and post-processing
  • Create highest quality speech environment

PHY

Tensilica’s DPUs are idea for the intense data processing requirements in the PHY layer, including the DSP functions as well as the functions that must be offloaded to separate accelerators, such as the FFT, MIMO, RAKE and others. See our Baseband and RF Signal Processing section.

MAC

Tensilica’s DPUs are used for packet offload and other MAC-layer tasks. See our Baseband and RF Signal Processing section.

Security

Tensilica’s DPUs are used as security processors in networks because they can be designed with special hardware instructions that can’t be easily copied by any other company. The ability to modify the processor can give security applications a lot of natural advantages. See our Xtensa processor section.

Applications Processing

Because our DPUs are all based on a minimal 32-bit RISC architecture, they’re also very good at control tasks. Many companies use them. See our Diamond Standard section to see representative control configurations.

Voice

Tensilica’s HiFi Audio DSPs support the voice standards used in VoIP. We also have codecs for noise suppression and other special effects. See the Audio, Speech and Voice section.
