7.2-Mbps HEDGE 65-nm Multimedia Baseband Processor
The BCM2153 single-chip HEDGE multimedia baseband processor features WCDMA, 7.2-Mbps HSDPA, and EDGE Class 12 capability to provide full support for 2G and 3G voice and high-speed data. Full inter-RAT operation is supported for seamless global roaming on EDGE/GPRS/GSM and HSDPA/WCDMA networks worldwide. The BCM2153 integrates all multimedia, analog, and stereo audio functions on a single, monolithic piece of silicon, which avoids the added cost of die-stacking and provides for lower power operation and lower BOM cost.
Full stereo music capability is integrated, including high-performance stereo DACs for both headset and stereo speakers, with integrated 5-band graphic equalizer and digital mixing, thus eliminating the need for an external audio device. On-chip stereo output is provided for up to 400 mW into 8Ω. The BCM2153 also integrates the analog PHY required for USB2.0, providing full USB2.0 480 Mbps, with no external components and supporting USB charging and audio functions.
