CEVA’s DSP Cores for 2G/3G/4G Baseband, Video, ISP, Voice and Audio

Today’s wireless handsets and smartphones are required to perform a tremendous variety of compute-intensive tasks while consuming as little power as possible so as to maximize the battery life. These process-intensive tasks include 3G/4G data communication to provide high-speed data access, playing high-fidelity audio, displaying high-definition video, capturing and processing images and videos, performing sophisticated voice processing functions, supporting connectivity including WiFi, Bluetooth, and GPS, and providing sophisticated gaming functionality.

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.
