NEC Chooses Altera's 28 nm FPGAs to Differentiate in Competitive LTE Marketplace

SAN JOSE, Calif., Nov. 14, 2013 — (PRNewswire) —  Altera Corporation (Nasdaq: ALTR) today announced that NEC will use Altera's 28 nm FPGAs to bring new levels of performance to its Long-term Evolution (LTE) base stations and enable wireless service providers to more effectively manage their networks. 

Altera Stratix® V and Cyclone® V FPGAs drive the complex algorithms that allow NEC's LTE base station infrastructure offering to improve operators' data performance while lowering investment and operation cost of the network.

"Wireless providers moving to LTE continue to seek ways to more efficiently deploy and manage their networks," said Mr. Nozomu Watanabe, General Manager, Mobile RAN Division, NEC. "Altera's 28 nm portfolio will enable us to innovate on our base station architecture which operators can use to superior services to users while reducing capital costs and operating costs."

Altera's 28 nm FPGAs provide the flexibility and performance needed to implement the various LTE system level features of the next-generation base station without sacrificing power efficiency.

LTE enables improved wireless service to users, allowing multitude types of services to be offered, enhancing users' mobile experiences. It also allows operators to utilize bandwidth more effectively because it supports network deployment on different frequency bandwidths.

"The rapid growth in mobile devices and mobile services creates large demand for next-generation base stations to support the associated higher bandwidth needs, better signal coverage, and monetization of the services to users," said Scott Bibaud, SVP and General Manager of Altera's Communications and Broadcast division. "Our 28 nm FPGA families deliver the processing bandwidth and flexibility required to enable wireless providers to provide the features, differentiation, and performance required of their LTE systems."
