Overview

Reliable, low-power wireless connectivity is a fundamental requirement for a wide range of applications, spanning smartphones and tablets, smart speakers and audio accessories, wearables, smart home products, industrial and automotive systems, and a whole host of other devices being created for the Internet of Things (IoT).

The highly competitive nature of these markets constantly pushes developers up the integration curve, with winning solutions embedding connectivity such as Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and other LPWA technologies directly into the SoCs and ASSPs at the heart of these products. Many of these protocols run concurrently, requiring solutions such as Wi-Fi & Bluetooth coexistence interface to avoid interference when operating on the same frequency band.

All of these require:

  • Proven, portable, and certified IP solutions that can be quickly and easily embedded into silicon
  • Area and power efficient implementations to enable differentiating silicon products
  • Comprehensive platform solutions to accelerate the design curve
  • Optimized solutions appropriate for the target product, be that low power, high performance or multi-gig Wi-Fi (802.11a/b/g/n/ac/ax, 1×1 to 4×4) or low power Bluetooth dual mode (BTDM) or ultra-low power Bluetooth low energy (BLE)
  • Adaptable coexistence schemes for smooth simultaneous operation

target markets

Mobile

Delivering reliable, power-efficient Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity at a minimum cost is a challenge for every mobile device designer

Wearables

Smart watches, smart bands, and earbuds are just some of the applications that demand ultra-low-power, ultra-miniature SoCs with embedded Wi-Fi and/or Bluetooth

Consumer IoT

Without efficient and effective connectivity, developing IoT devices for the smart home or the workplace would simply not be possible

Automotive

From luxury to entry-level models, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth are no longer optional extras on today's smart and connected cars

Industrial IoT

From smart meters to smart cities, from factory floor to long range asset tracking, wireless and PLC standards are enabling new possibilities

Computing

The rise of the connected world creates a wealth of data to be stored in SATA- and SAS-based HDDs and SSDs, with advanced neural networks processing, cataloging, and leveraging this data to provide advanced services

We have chosen CEVA's RivieraWaves dual mode Bluetooth IP because it allows us to address the widest possible range of applications, covering both classic and low energy connections.
