The CEVA-TeakLite Family of DSP cores is designed to address the needs of high volume, cost-sensitive markets. Founded on a classic memory-based Harvard architecture, the CEVA-TeakLite family combines small die size, excellent code density, and high processing power.
The most cost-effective member of the CEVA-TeakLite Family, the CEVA-TeakLite, is a fully synthesizable (soft core), process-independent design that allows the SoC designer to select the optimal implementation in terms of silicon area, power consumption, and operating frequency. This low-power, single MAC, 16-bit, fixed-point DSP core has been specifically designed to be embedded in highly-integrated System-on-Chip (SoC) devices.
The CEVA-TeakLite is supported by a wide range of deliverables, which significantly reduces risk and time-to-market. These deliverables include a complete implementation along with associated hardware and software development tools and verification and simulation environments. CEVA-TeakLite designs can also be implemented in an FPGA for prototyping and system integration.
The CEVA-TeakLite is also backed up by a wealth of software and algorithms. To further reduce the cost, complexity, and risk in bringing products to market, CEVA has established an ecosystem of partners who provide application software, reference designs, complementary IP, design services, and complete solutions based on CEVA’s DSP cores and Platform Solutions.

- Soft Core (process and library independent).
- Available also as a Hard Macro Low Voltage operation, down to one volt.
- Low power consumption Three modes of operation:
- Active mode
- Slow mode - linearly reduces clock speeds and current consumption by a factor N (user defined factor)
- Stop mode - leakage current only Fully Static Design. Cool CEVA-TeakLite version - optimized for very low power consumption.
- Target applications for the CEVA-TeakLite include audio, voice, 2G/2.5G wireless baseband, Power Line Communication (PLC), VoIP, and other signal processing for mobile computing devices, wireless handsets, portable media players, hard disk drives, optical drives, and more.
