This platform utilized by the Broadcom GC79 Wireless Modem device employs a unique hardware/software partitioning in that the protocol functions and main radio modem device are managed by dedicated hardware and therefore do not need the utilization of a hi-speed DSP core to provide 4-slot EDGE capability. The partitioning along with an innovative incremental redundancy implementation that does not need high CPU and DSP processors instructions, generally results in consumption of low power amounts that allows for more available processing power to carry out multimedia applications. The multimedia platform of EDGE is made up of a full radio reference design which includes all layer one DSP software, application enablers, API (application programming interface), flexible software, and protocol stack. An all inclusive multimedia framework is likewise available to support the development of MMI (man machine interface) and terminals.
