Silicon-Proven Multimedia, Voice-over-IP and Audio Development Platforms Highlight CEVA's Extensive Commitment to Provide Complete One-Stop-Shop Licensable Solutions for Mobile DevicesSAN JOSE, Calif., Jan. 31, 2007
-- CEVA, Inc. (Nasdaq: CEVA - News; LSE: CVA - News), a leading licensor of innovative intellectual property (IP) platform solutions and DSP cores for wireless, consumer and multimedia applications, will be demonstrating a comprehensive range of complete hardware and software platform IP solutions aimed at mobile devices during 3GSM World Congress in Barcelona, Spain (12-15 February 2007), at Stand 2F07, Hall 2.
All IP solutions that CEVA will be demonstrating at 3GSM incorporate CEVA's industry-leading DSP cores, providing an easy migration path for existing customers wanting to integrate leading-edge applications into their handset designs. New licensees benefit from CEVA's "complete solution" approach to IP in which all the necessary hardware and software application IP is provided by CEVA. A single-source provider allows product developers to easily incorporate a range of new technologies into their system-on-chips (SoCs), offering them cost, power and time-to-market benefits.
CEVA will demonstrate the following portfolio of products at 3GSM 2007:
Targeted at mobile multimedia applications for handheld devices such as smartphones, wireless PDA's, Portable Media Players and Portable Navigation Devices, Mobile-Media2000 is a fully programmable solution supporting a broad range of audio and video encoders and decoders including MPEG4, H.264, VC-1, WMV, WMA, AAC, HE-AAC and more up to SD resolution at 30 frames per second (fps). Mobile-Media2000 incorporates all the technologies required to deliver a total solution for SoC developers, including a complete DSP-based hardware platform, optimized software codecs and Software Development Kits (SDK) including advanced middleware (3GPP File Formats and streaming protocol). Customers licensing Mobile-Media2000 can reuse this single platform across multiple products and markets providing a cost-effective, low power, programmable DSP-based solution. In addition to supporting virtually any multimedia codec, the embedded CEVA-X1620 DSP core provides the ability to run any general software in addition to the multimedia DSP code, offering the semiconductor vendor a highly flexible solution with die size, cost and power benefits.
At the show, CEVA will be demonstrating the Mobile-Media2000 full solution running full software solution for advanced codecs such as H.264 and MPEG4 at SD resolution, 30fps.
CEVA-VoP is a fully integrated Voice-over-Packet (VoP) platform solution targeted at residential and consumer markets. Enabled by CEVA's Xpert-TeakLite-II(TM) subsystem, the platform integrates CEVA's broadly used, programmable TeakLite-II(TM) DSP core, with added system peripherals capable of handling multiple, simultaneous, packet-voice channels on a single core. It includes a fully integrated VoIP software suite, integrating speech compression and decompression, echo cancellation, telephony functions, and signaling/networking. The incorporated software is open, allowing design licensees to add proprietary algorithms and broaden the use of the design to other markets or applications. CEVA-VoP can be deployed as a subsystem in an integrated networking and VoP System-on-Chip.
At the show, CEVA will be demonstrating the CEVA-VoP full solution running all the VoIP telephony functions on a single TeakLite-II(TM) DSP core, including the networking functions.
Targeting high-volume markets such as portable audio players, Smartphones and home theatre systems (digital TVs and Set Top Boxes), CEVA-Audio is a low-power, low-cost DSP-based platform that combines several CEVA-developed technologies including the CEVA-TeakLite-II DSP core, a cache memory subsystem, audio peripherals, a comprehensive set of audio codecs (MP3, WMA, AAC, HE-AAC, Ogg Vorbis, BSAC, NB-AMR and WB-AMR) and complete tool chain support.
At the show, CEVA will be demonstrating a CEVA-TeakLite-II based silicon platform running various Audio codecs such as MP3 and WMA decoding with an MMC Flash card as the music source.
High-performance and flexible DSP and platform solutions to be demonstrated by CEVA Technology Partners during 3GSM include: a video-over-UMTS solution utilizing the CEVA-X1620(TM) DSP core; Smartphone and Karaoke video and audio platforms that incorporate CEVA-TeakLite-II DSP cores; and a CEVA Technology Partner utilizing the CEVA-X1641(TM) Quad-MAC DSP core for its latest generation of WiMAX baseband processors.About CEVA, Inc.
