(1) (Personal Cell) An impending cellular transmission technology from Artemis Networks LLC, San Francisco, CA (www.artemis.com) that creates an independent 4G LTE channel for each user. Formerly called Distributed Input Distributed Output (DIDO), pCell implementation is compatible with standard LTE phones and tablets, and people can move between standard LTE cells and pCells. When in pCells, all users can obtain uninterrupted HD video streamed to their devices with five-bar signal strength.

Use the Interference
Employing software-defined radio (SDR) and Artemis-designed pWave transmitters, pCells exploit interference rather than trying to eliminate it. Radio signals are combined in real time to create a centimeter-sized cell for each mobile device. See software-defined radio and 4G.

(2) (PCell) (Parameterized CELL) A pre-designed circuit that is customized for each purpose when it is used.

(3) (P-Cell) (Parameterized CELL) A Korean cellular technology that divides a geographic area into a matrix for location detection.
