CEVA-TeakLite DSP Core Powers Edge Cellular Solution for Broadcom

12/16/2003 - CEVA, Inc. (NASDAQ: CEVA; LSE: CVA), the leading licensor of Digital Signal Processor (DSP) cores and integrated applications to the semiconductor industry, announced that Broadcom Corporation has deployed the CEVA-TeakLite DSP Core to power the Broadcom® BCM2132 EDGE/GPRS/GSM multimedia baseband processor chip for the rapidly emerging EDGE (Enhanced Data for GSM Evolution) market.

Mobilink Telecom, which Broadcom acquired in 2002, licensed the CEVA-TeakLite DSP Core. Its decision to continue developing EDGE solutions using CEVA-TeakLite underlines CEVA's position as the leading licensor of open, industry-standard DSP cores. CEVA is the number one licensor of DSP technology to the semiconductor industry (Gartner-Dataquest, 2003).

"We are delighted that Broadcom, a leading provider of integrated circuits enabling broadband communications, have chosen CEVA's low-power, high-performance TeakLite DSP core to power their industry-leading solution for the rapidly emerging EDGE market," said Chet Silvestri, CEO of CEVA. "It is clear that with over 100 licensing partners choosing CEVA, our DSP is the architecture of choice for the next generation of wireless solutions."

CEVA-TeakLite is powering Broadcom's single-chip EDGE solution that achieves Class 12 data rates of more than 236 Kbps over GSM networks. The chip's DSP processor together with the chipset's software/hardware architecture, delivers low-power consumption for full four-slot EDGE freeing processing power for a range of integrated multimedia applications including camera, graphics engine, multiple color displays, USB, IEEE 802.11 and Bluetooth® technologies.
