The CEVA Business Model
The CEVA business model consists of two components; upfront license fees and related revenues; and royalty revenue from every chip sold by our customers incorporating our IP.
CEVA was created through the combination of the DSP IP licensing division of DSP Group, Inc. and Parthus Technologies plc ("Parthus") in November 2002. In 2014, the company acquired RivieraWaves, a privately held French company with Wi-Fi and Bluetooth IP. CEVA is traded on the NASDAQ Global Market (Ticker: CEVA)
