ParthusCeva TeakLite DSP Core Powers Infineon's S-GoldLiet GSM.GPRS Wireless Single ChipSAN JOSE, CA, September 3, 2003
- ParthusCeva, Inc. (Nasdaq: PCVA, LSE: PCV) the leading licensor of Digital Signal Processor (DSP) cores and solutions to the semiconductor industry, announced today that ParthusCeva’s TeakLite® DSP core is powering Infineon Technologies’ latest single-chip GSM/GPRS wireless baseband controller, the S-GOLDlite™.
Infineon’s licensing of the TeakLite DSP core for its next generation GSM/GPRS baseband builds on many years of successful use of ParthusCeva’s earlier DSP core, OAKDSPCore®, which Infineon had deployed to power previous 2G and 2.5G wireless and wireline communications products. For the S-GOLDlite™ wireless baseband controller, Infineon has combined ParthusCeva’s TeakLite DSP core with the ARM926™ microprocessor in a highly optimized single-chip solution delivering full GPRS class-12 support and high-performance multimedia capabilities.
“We are delighted to extend our long-standing relationship with Infineon Technologies through the deployment of our TeakLite DSP core in their 2.5G S-GOLDlite baseband,” said Chet Silvestri, CEO of ParthusCeva. “Infineon 2G baseband solutions, powered by ParthusCeva DSP cores have achieved tremendous market success, and we look forward to replicating that success with their new generation 2.5G GPRS and EDGE chipsets.”About TeakLite
TeakLite is a 16-bit fixed-point general-purpose DSP core. Designed as a solution for low-power, high-performance applications and high-speed digital processing applications such as speech and audio processing, wireless communication (GSM, CDMA, TDMA, EDGE, GPRS, etc.), modems, advanced telecommunication systems, disk-drive controllers and embedded control applications, TeakLite, is a fully synthesizable soft core and a process independent core that is easily portable to any ASIC library.
TeakLite is a member of ParthusCeva's SmartCores™ family. These low-power, fixed-point licensable DSP cores offer a range of performance, price and power consumption balances, addressing a wide range of applications, from low-end, high-volume applications, such as digital answering machines, hard disk controllers, low speed modems and Voice over IP terminals, to high performance applications such as third generation (3G) cellular communications, broadband modems, consumer multimedia and Voice over IP gateways. A comprehensive portfolio of software and hardware development tools supports the SmartCores family. In addition, a large network of third party companies offers applications, tools and design services solutions.
