Intel talks up first in-house LTE modem

Written by Fudzilla staff

Ready for Bay Trail

Intel is hoping to introduce Bay Trail-T processors just in time for the holiday season, but in addition to an all-new 22nm architecture, the chips will feature another trump card, LTE support.

Intel demonstrated its first 4G LTE modem at Computex, and the XMM 7160 is already undergoing carrier certification tests on three continents. Intel says the XMM 7160 is one of the world’s smallest and lowest power multimode-multiband LTE solutions.

The modem supports 15 LTE bands simultaneously, and also includes a highly configurable RF architecture running real-time algorithms for envelope tracking and antenna tuning that enables cost-efficient multiband configurations, extended battery life and global LTE roaming in a single SKU.

However, although the new modem should be quite common in Bay Trail based designs, it might show up in some Clover Trail+ products as well. It will be on option on Samsung’s new Galaxy Tab 3, and it’s probably its only redeeming feature since the tablet itself is rubbish.
