This article discusses the low-power features of Motorola's M*CORE architecture, the first processor designed specifically for sophisticated, yet low-power, applications. A dual-processor solution for a TDMA baseband transceiver, currently in production, is also described. The key features of the 1.8-volt DSP56652 cellular baseband processor, currently designed into the iDEN i1000 phone, highlights the integration of smart peripherals to reduce overall power consumption.
