ABI Research Teardown: Motorola Designs Own LTE Chip for Droid Bionic

NEW YORK, Sep 27, 2011 (BUSINESS WIRE) —
Motorola started shipping a rarely expected Droid Bionic reduction than
a integrate weeks ago. As partial of a Teardown investigate service, ABI
Research has dismantled, analyzed, and tested a device down to the
member level. The conclusion? The second fastest application
processor tested to date, a tradition LTE chip designed by Motorola, the
CDMA apportionment of a phone from Qualcomm, and some new RF components
alongside a filter record from a decade ago.

According to ABI Research clamp boss of engineering James
Mielke, “Motorola has churned some of a latest record with utterly a
few components now deliberate a normal and a few that have not been seen
in phones for years.” One of a newer components, a OMAP4430, scored
good in opening contrast though not utterly high adequate to tip the

Major changes include:

LTE modem designed by Motorola

A new LTE transceiver from Intel (Infineon)

An engaging RF pattern ancillary some-more than a advertised
CDMA/LTE support

Transition from Nvidia Tegra II to OMAP4430 focus processor.

Mielke sums up: “Motorola took a intelligent proceed to introducing new
record by integrating their new components with formerly tested
technology. It is flattering easy to presupposition what caused a launch delays.”
