DesignArt Networks takes the wrapper of its ground-breaking 40nm 4G SoC platform family – with the launch of five distinct SoC solutions. The DAN3800 Baseband SoC is the 4G performance flagship, targeting next generation distributed macro base station equipment. It draws new lines in the sand in terms of performance, system integration, and its extremely low power consumption.

LTE Advanced, or LTE R10, standardization foresees the use of advanced features and signal processing capabilities, such as successive interference cancellation (SIC), beam forming (BF), multi-user MIMO (MU-MIMO), LTE relay, and multi-carrier spectrum aggregation, to create the necessary multi-gigabit capacity for 4G data services. Simultaneously, the DAN3800 SoC supports all of these processing intensive technologies, while operating a 4-sector LTE R10 baseband across up to 80 MHz of aggregated spectrum capacity, driving up to 16 transmit and 16 receive paths – far beyond the scalability and performance of existing silicon solutions.

The DAN3800 Baseband SoC uses the fully software-defined radio (SDR) sub-system of the DAN3000 SoC platform. All PHY algorithms are implemented in software, running on a combination of multi-core DSP and multi-core RISC processing layers. Both, DSP and RISC cores have been designed with a unique architecture, specifically tailored for the design of high-performance, yet fully flexible SDR systems. The DAN3800 offers maximum flexibility and a future-proof software evolution path, within the power budget of a dedicated silicon solution.
