Feature-rich, 3GPP Rel.14 compliant CEVA-Dragonfly NB2 IP lowers the entry barriers for developing NB-IoT SoCs targeting mass-market cellular IoT
MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif. -- April 11, 2019 -- CEVA, Inc. (NASDAQ: CEVA), the leading licensor of signal processing platforms and artificial intelligence processors for smarter, connected devices, today announced that it has been declared a winner in the China Electronic Market (CEM) 2018 Editor's Choice Awards. The award recognizes the CEVA-Dragonfly NB2 as "The most competitive IoT solution in China."
Extending CEVA's leadership in NB-IoT IP, the highly integrated and modular CEVA-Dragonfly NB2 is the world's first solution for Cat-NB2 (3GPP Release 14 eNB-IoT). At a time where cellular hardware engineering resources are scarce, CEVA-Dragonfly NB2 can dramatically lower the entry barriers for the many chipmakers, module makers, OEMs and operators looking to address the large and fast-growing cellular IoT space.
"We are very pleased to accept CEM's prestigious award for our CEVA-Dragonfly NB2 at a time when cellular IoT is undergoing rapid evolution and take-up, particularly in China," said Michael Boukaya, COO of CEVA. "This is an exciting time in the formation of the standards that underpin long-range connectivity for IoT. We already have more than a dozen licensees for our Dragonfly NB-IoT solutions, illustrating the value that our complete eNB-IoT IP brings to this industry."
The CEVA-Dragonfly NB2 IP solution is a modular technology, composed of the CEVA-X1 IoT processor, an optimized RF Transceiver, baseband, and a protocol stack to offer a complete Release 14 Cat-NB2 modem IP solution that significantly reduces time-to-market and lowers entry barriers. It is a fully software-configurable solution and can be extended with multi-constellation GNSS and sensor fusion functionality. The IP includes a reference silicon of the complete modem design, including an embedded CMOS RF transceiver and PA, an advanced digital front-end, physical layer firmware, and a protocol stack (MAC, RLC, PDCP, RRC, and NAS).
