A new Universal Wireless Communications Toolkit from Lime Microsystems comprises Lime’s configurable transceiver board linked to an Altera FPGA design kit via a purpose-built, high-speed, mezzanine-connection (HSMC) interface board.

Lime’s LMS6002D is an integrated multi-band, multi-standard single-chip RF transceiver for 3GPP (WCDMA/HSPA and LTE), 3GPP2 (CDMA2000) and WiMAX applications. It can be digitally configured to operate in 16 user-selectable bandwidths to 28 MHz. In addition to small-cell base stations, Lime says its customers are using the IC to create machine-to-machine, GNU radio and white-space radio applications.

Altera’s 28-nm FPGAs include its Stratix V FPGAs, targeting high-performance systems; Arria V FPGAs, targeting mid-range applications that require a mix of low power and high performance; and Cyclone V FPGAs, targeting low-power, cost-sensitive applications.

“We believe this will lead to the development of novel wireless networks at fraction of the cost and time to market,” notes Ebrahim Bushehri, CEO at Lime. “This is the most versatile platform for the developers of current and future wireless systems.”
