Tensilica and mimoOn Partner to Provide the Only Comprehensive LTE and LTE-Advanced Hardware-Software PHY IP Solution

Tensilica Gains Exclusivity for mimoOn's LTE Software Chain on Tensilica DSP/DPU IP Cores for Both Handset and Base Station PHY

SANTA CLARA, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 11/27/12 -- Tensilica®, Inc. and mimoOn today announced a tight partnership to provide designers with the only comprehensive hardware/software licensable IP solution for LTE (Long-term evolution) and LTE-Advanced chip designs. Through an agreement between mimoOn and Tensilica, Tensilica is now the exclusive DSP IP vendor for mimoOn's LTE UE (user equipment) and eNodeB (base station) physical layer (PHY) software products.

The two companies have been working together and demonstrated joint LTE solutions at the Mobile World Congress show for the past three years. mimoOn's mi!SmallCellPHY™, mi!MobilePHY™, and mi!SmallCellSTACK LTE eNodeB Protocol Stack™ software products (see http://www.mimoon.de/pages/Products/ for more information) have been optimized for Tensilica's ConnX Baseband Engine (BBE) family and ConnX DPU IP cores (see http://www.tensilica.com/products/comms_dsp for more information). Customers will also have access to mimoOn's complete LTE software portfolio, product support and design services, which helps customers reduce risk and shorten time-to-market, while allowing a high degree of product differentiation.

"This agreement is powerful," stated Will Strauss, president of Forward Concepts and leading DSP analyst. "mimoOn is very well respected for their software, and Tensilica is already providing their DSPs for LTE designs. Now any company looking to enter the LTE or LTE-Advanced market can be assured of a comprehensive hardware/software solution."

"Having a complete SW PHY ported on a subsystem of cores is the only way to ensure that the IP cores and subsystem will perform well. In collaboration with our partner mimoOn, Tensilica can provide a complete hardware/software PHY solution. By working closely together, we can not only assure our customers that our IP Cores and LTE Subsystem have the right performance for LTE/LTE-A signal processing and control tasks but also help our customers get chips to market much faster and with the lowest power/area for LTE and LTE-Advanced communications," stated Jack Guedj, Tensilica's president and CEO. "mimoOn has been the leader for LTE PHY by providing the industry's most comprehensive licensable software IP and design support services for mobile handsets and wireless infrastructure. "

"Tensilica has become our IP partner of choice based on the quality and the low power/area of their DSP IP cores and the interest we've seen in the marketplace for their hardware solutions," stated Dirk Friebel, CEO of mimoOn. "Their BBE family of DSP and function specific DPU cores is ideally suited for both handsets and base stations, bringing a low-power, highly programmable solution to market."
