CEVA is the
world’s leading licensor of DSP cores and platform solutions for the mobile,
digital home and networking markets. For more than twenty years, CEVA has been
licensing a portfolio of DSPs, platforms and software to leading semiconductor
vendors and original equipment manufacturer (OEM) companies worldwide. CEVA's
IP portfolio includes comprehensive technologies for cellular baseband (2G / 3G
/ 4G), image enhancement & vision, advanced audio and voice , Voice over IP
(VoIP), Bluetooth, Serial Attached SCSI (SAS) and Serial ATA (SATA).
Bluetooth is a widely-used wireless technology standard
for creating personal area networks (PANs). Bluetooth was originally conceived
to securely carry speech and data over short distances of typically a few
meters. Propelled by its popularity in hands-free headsets and automotive
hands-free kits, Bluetooth is approaching virtual universal availability in
wireless handsets and smartphones, and other mobile consumer electronic
products including tablet computers, portable media players, portable game
consoles, and automotive applications.
Today’s mobile devices –
from smartphones to tablet computers – are required to perform a tremendous
variety of compute-intensive multimedia tasks while consuming as little power
as possible. These tasks include capturing, processing, and displaying high-definition
images and videos, capturing and playing high-definition audio, voice
processing, and advanced capabilities such as face detection and gesture
recognition. Embedded cameras in mobile devices require significant Image
Signal Processing (ISP) in order to create quality images and video clips and
to support embedded vision applications.
The enterprise storage industry remains heavily
committed to the SCSI protocol. With ever-increasing requirements for higher
performance, the enterprise storage market is rapidly evolving from SAS2.0 to
SAS3.0, doubling the line rate to 12Gbps.
Digital signal processing is a key technology that is
powering many of today’s fastest growing electronics markets. CEVA is the
world's leading licensor of programmable DSP cores and Platforms and Solutions.
With the increasing adoption of broadband connectivity,
the required infrastructure is now in place for Voice-over-Internet-Protocol
(VoIP) services to finally reach critical mass. Responding to market demand,
wireless communications carriers, software vendors and device manufacturers are
striving to develop a range of products and services that exploit this
The CEVA-X family of cores is based on a unique mix of
Very Long Instruction Word (VLIW) and Single Instruction Multiple Data
(SIMD)architectures. The VLIW architecture allows a high level of concurrent
instructions processing, thereby providing extended parallelism and low power
consumption. The SIMD architecture allows single instructions to operate on
multiple data elements, thereby resulting in code size reduction and increased
The CEVA Super-Resolution (SR) algorithm increases
quality of still images for mobile devices. In today’s world, where smartphones
are the most commonly used camera devices, image quality is still limited due
to slim form factor and strict power constraints. Super-Resolution is an
important breakthrough, enabling systems manufacturers and OEMs to increase the
quality of images on any device, regardless of these factors.
