CEVA’s DSP Cores for Audio and Video Encoding and Decoding

Blu-ray disc and DVD players and recorders require extensive digital signal processing capabilities. Blu-ray in particular requires tremendous processing capabilities to handle the huge data bandwidth associated with high definition (HD) multi-channel audio and video content.
Furthermore, Blu-ray and DVD players are increasingly adding Set-top Box (STB) and personal area networking functionality to facilitate content search, to enable real-time wireless and wired media sharing, and to offer Internet connectivity and web browser support. Due to the overwhelming array of software and processing technologies required to be supported in these devices, the optimal solution for the developers of the silicon chips is to handle these functions using state-of-the-art programmable DSP cores.

CEVA is the world's leading licensor of programmable Digital Signal Processor (DSP) cores. To better serve the DTV market, CEVA provides a portfolio of application-specific DSPs offering the highest flexibility and performance, along with associated subsystems, library functions, a comprehensive suite of optimized software codecs, and a complete development environment.
