DesignWare IP for Baseband IC Designs


A separated baseband IC or cellular modem allows high-end smartphones and tablets to be customized for the wireless standards in different geographies. For tablet and notebook manufacturers, a separated baseband IC allows the manufacturer to produce a range of products with or without cellular/4G/LTE capability. The baseband IC typically has its own CPU and embedded software, and features a cellular modem that is primarily responsible for voice and data communications. The baseband IC often has its own DDR/LPDDR memory interface, storage interface (SD/eMMC), and a high-speed interface to an applications processor.
