12/4/2002 - ParthusCeva, the leading licensor of digital signal processors (DSP) cores and related Intellectual Property (IP) to the semiconductor industry, announced the first licensable IEEE 802.11a compliant IP platform at 5GHz. ParthusCeva demonstrated this solution to an audience of ParthusCeva customers at its offices in San Jose, CA last month generating positive comment on product's performance and robustness.
In another first for ParthusCeva, this 5GHz version of the In8StreamTM 802.11a platform demonstrated the maturity of the ParthusCeva solution and showed the capabilities of the novel architecture used. Highlights of this demonstration included:
"We are extremely excited to demonstrate this breakthrough 802.11 IP capability to a wider audience. Through the In8Stream platform we are showing technology leadership within the 802.11 IP environment building on our market leadership in related wireless markets such as Bluetooth," said Gerry Maguire, VP and GM of Wireless Solutions Division, ParthusCeva. "The In8StreamTM platform is already having a significant impact on the market and we are confident that with the wider adoption of our 802.11a technology we will further secure our market leading position in short-range wireless communications."
Our interoperable multi-mode b/a/g MAC Hardware core demonstration can be viewed at the '802.11 Planet Conference', Santa Clara Convention Center (December 3-5, 2002).
Fully IEEE 802.11 compliant, In8StreamTM incorporates a multi-mode b/a/g MAC Hardware core, a complete software stack for station or access point applications and 802.11a multi-protocol baseband core. The In8StreamTM architecture incorporates numerous differentiating features including:
A mixed hardware and software architecture means emerging standards such as 802.11i, e and h can be implemented in software without the need for new silicon.
802.11 is a family of specifications for wireless local area networks (WLANs) developed by a working group of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE). There are currently three specifications in the family: 802.11, 802.11a and 802.11b. The most recently proposed standard, 802.11g (which will be added next year), offers wireless transmission in the 2.4 GHz ISM band at data rates up to 54 megabits per second (Mbps) compared with the 11 megabits per second of the 802.11b standard.
