Tensilica will be demonstrating NTT DOCOMO’s ARROWS X F-02E smartphone at its booth #6D101 at the Mobile World Congress show in Barcelona, Spain, February 25-28, 2013. NTT DOCOMO’s ARROWS X F-02E is the first smartphone to employ the ANT30 multi-mode modem from Access Network Technology. ANT is jointly owned by Fujitsu, NTT DOCOMO, NEC and Fujistu Semiconductor.
The ANT30 multi-mode modem employs multiple Tensilica dataplane processors and ConnX BBE-based digital signal processors to do the complex signal processing for multimode 4G LTE and 3G communications. It also uses Tensilica’s HiFi Audio/Voice DSP for high-quality sound.

“The ANT30 represents the second generation of integrated 4G LTE and 2G/3G chips that have used Tensilica’s DPUs and DSPs – the first generation has been very successful in the Japanese market,” stated Eric Dewannain, Tensilica’s vice president and general manager of the Baseband Business Unit. “In this second generation, ANT has significantly reduced the power dissipation to increase battery life by employing specifically optimized Tensilica DPU programmable accelerators in addition to the versatile ConnX BBE DSP. The ANT modem, designed to service the worldwide market due to its software programmability, can quickly adjust to standard evolution or new requirements.”

The ANT30 is being designed into next-generation smartphones and tablets. It provides support for 2G/3G and 4G LTE modems with a peak data rate of 100 Mbps for high-speed data communication. Its unique software-programmable radio technology employs a Tensilica-based multi-core architecture.

Tensilica’s HiFi Audio/Voice DSP family is the most widely-used licensable audio/voice DSP family, with support for over 100 proven audio/voice software packages. Over 50 companies have licensed Tensilica’s HiFi DSP family, and they’ve shipped over 200 million HiFi DSP cores in their smartphones, tablets, computers, digital televisions, home entertainment systems, and other devices.
