Ensigma Multistandard Communications
Ensigma™ Radio Processing Units (RPU) implement all of the connectivity and broadcast reception requirements of tomorrow’s complex SoCs. With more than thirty different deployable standards available for Ensigma RPUs today, they are the world’s most comprehensive baseband solution for integration into SoCs and advanced chipsets.
Ensigma RPUs are offered in a wide spectrum of performance capabilities, ranging from MIMO-capable multi-stream cores featuring dynamic support for mixed simultaneous standards to single-steam configurations that can replace multiple hardwired cores.
Built using Imagination’s highly successful Universal Communications Core (UCC) programmable radio technology, Ensigma RPUs bring truly multi-standard basebands to consumer-class products.
UCC technology uniquely combines fully programmable modulation and coding processors with multi-standard hardware accelerators and a multi-stream DMA fabric to yield a power and area optimized multi-standard baseband solution. The hardware accelerators implement structures less suited to software such as signal down-conversion and advanced error correction, and are themselves reused between standards.
