Terminal-on-a”chip targets wireless backhaul applications

Santa Clara, Calif.—Provigent announced the availability of the PVG610 terminal-on-a-chip for backhaul infrastructure applications such as 3G, LTE and WiMAX.

The PVG610 mixed-signal CMOS device provides the complete processing chain from user data interfaces through the high performance modem to carrier IF frequency. Multiple onboard user data interfaces supported include: PDH; E1/T1/J1 LIU and framers SDH/SONET; STM-1/OC-3 Ethernet; 10/100/1000-Mbits/s Ethernet GMAC management; and serial interfaces.

The user data streams from the available interfaces are aggregated and multiplexed. Modem technology performs encoding and offers QPSK through 256QAM modulations. The PVG610 embeds a D/A converter, which converts the modulated signal into analog for IF transmission, as well as an A/D converter that digitizes the received signal. Demodulation, decoding and mapping to the user data streams (interfaces) are all managed by the PVG610's embedded ARM9 processor.

The PVG610 and its full support package are immediately available for integration and testing.
