The BSC9132 is a highly integrated device that targets evolving microcell, picocell, and enterprise-femto base station applications. The BSC9132 device combines two e500 cores, built on Power Architecture technology, and two StarCore SC3850 cores with MAPLE-B2P baseband acceleration processing elements to address the need for a high-performance, low-cost, integrated solution that handles all required processing layers without the need for an external device except for an RF transceiver or, in a micro base station configuration, a host device that handles the L3/L4 and handover between sectors.
With primary target air interfaces for LTE-FDD/TDD and WCDMA (HSPA+), the BSC9132 programmable device supports the performance and cost requirements of up to 20 MHz single sector LTE-FDD/TDD by handling 150 Mbps downlink and 75 Mbps uplink rates, 5 MHz HSPA+ by handling 42 Mbps downlink and 11.5 Mbps uplink rates for up to 64 simultaneous users, or WiMAX at 10 MHz. The BSC9132 supports multimode operation that enables it to process LTE-FDD/TDD and HSPA+ users simultaneously.

Here are some of the latest Mentor Graphics embedded software development demos, showing their embedded hypervisor demo running on a Freescale i.MX6, running one OS for the touch-screen in a car, and another to run the car systems for example. They will soon have support for ARM Cortex-A15 and ARMv8 also. Mentor Graphics also talks about their Sourcery CodeBench Virtual Edition software that allows to develop solutions before the silicon being ready, developing software on hardware that does not yet exist.
The all-new additions to Toradex’ Colibri product family are a couple of Freescale Vybrid SoC-powered low-power, small form-factor devices. The Colibri VF50 and the Colibri VF61, based respectively on Freescale Vybrid VF5xx and Vybrid VF6xx family of SoC. To give you a little more information, the Vybrid VF5xx family is a single-core (ARM Cortex-A5) solution with 1.5 MB on-chip SRAM, DDR2/3, high-speed USB with PHY, dual Ethernet and a host of other interfaces. On the other hand, the Vybrid VF6xx family is a dual-core (ARM Cortex-A5 plus ARM Cortex-M4) solution with 1.5 MB on-chip SRAM, DDR2/3, dual XiP quad SPI memory interfaces, dual high-speed USB with PHY, dual Ethernet, and a digital/analog video camera interface. The modules are also priced at an unbelievable USD 26 and USD 39 respectively for the Colibri VF50 and the Colibri VF61 (for high volumes). Toradex’ Colibri VF50 and VF61 are both SODIMM sized computer module with an emphasis, according to the company, on delivering cost-effective CPU, and graphic performance with a low power footprint. The dual-core on the Colibri VF61 makes it ideal for solutions that run a commercial operating system on the Cortex-A class core while the Cortex-M core runs an RTOS for time and security-critical operations. This kind of arrangement eliminates the need for an external MCU or field-programmable gate array (FPGA).

Onyx is able to do custom designs for Android based e-readers, engineering new features, designing new devices, enabling E Ink alternatives to Amazon Kindle, Nook and Kobo. Providing the fastest yet Android support on E Ink. Watch in this video filmed at the Onyx Headquarters in Shenzhen China, how the Onyx teams of engineers do their innovative work.
Rick Merritt provides an overview of the ARM Techcon 2013, talking about some of the latest stories published in EETimes, talking about some of his stories written from the ARM Techcon, talking about some of the highlights at ARM Techcon and in General Technology.
Check me on the Android Central show showing off my samples of some of the latest cheapest Android phones out of China. My range of latest phones include MediaTek MT6572 Dual-core ARM Cortex-A7 (512MB RAM) phones at $55 4″ (2G iPhone 5S style), $58 4″ 3G, $65 (3G SGS4-Mini style), $72 (3G SGS4 style), Spreadtrum 2G based at $36 4″ (2G Nokia windows phone style), $43 5.3″ (2G Note3 style), my Onyx E43 E Ink Android phone and Onyx Freescale iMX6 Solo Lite Android 4.0 E Ink E-reader.
Anyone else in the Silicon Valley would like to check out these devices? Let me know! I’ll be video-blogging at the ARM Techcon and Linaro Connect at the Santa Clara Convention Center during these next 4 days, then to spend another 6 days in San Francisco. I would like to visit the Twit Cottage next Sunday and I hope someone at Google invites me to their Mountain View headquarters!
Onyx International CEO present their now more finalized ready to ship Android E Ink Phone, the Boox E43, to be shipped to customers before Christmas, Onyx International is also the first to show Freescale i.MX6 Solo Lite single-core ARM Cortex-A9 running in an E Ink e-reader.
