Analog Devices introduces a complete chipset from a single supplier for developers of 3G mobile terminals based on the TD-SCDMA Low Chip Rate (LCR) air interface. Powered by ADI's Blackfin Processor, the SoftFone-LCR chipset provides all the critical functions necessary to build a TD-SCDMA handset, including the baseband signal processing and control, analog-interface functions, and radio. The chipset is based on the RAM-based SoftFone architecture used in Analog Devices' GSM/GPRS and EDGE chipsets. The chipset incorporates a digital baseband processor, achieving over 250 MHz performance and low power consumption through Blackfin's Dynamic Power Management capability. The product’s analog baseband and power management IC provides a full set of audio features, as well as efficient power management.
