Cannes, France - February 11, 2005 - CEVA, Inc., (NASDAQ: CEVA;
LSE: CVA), the leading licensor of Digital Signal Processor (DSP) cores
and communication solutions to the semiconductor industry, will be
demonstrating Mobile-Media, a complete and fully programmable licensable
platform for Mobile Multimedia applications and CEVA GPS, the industry's
leading fully DSP-based GPS licensable solution, with improved accuracy
for mobile devices, at 3GSM World Congress, Cannes, France; 14-17 February
2005, in Hall 2, Stand E16.
Targeted at mobile multimedia applications for handheld devices such as
multimedia phones, wireless PDAs and Portable Media Players, Mobile-Media
is the only fully programmable, software-based platform to achieve H.264
encode and decode, up to D1 resolution at 30 frames per second.
Mobile-Media incorporates a CEVA DSP core, a multimedia-oriented subsystem
and fully optimized software-only video, audio and imaging applications.
Mobile-Media allows OEMs to reuse this single platform for multiple
devices and enables the cost-effective deployment of new products. The
multi-standard support of the platform, supporting virtually any
multimedia codec, shrinks die size and cost and offers the semiconductor
vendor a highly flexible solution.
At the show, CEVA will be demonstrating Mobile-Media2000, based on the
CEVA-X DSP core, targeting smartphones and portable multimedia devices;
and Mobile-Media1000, based on the CEVA-Teak DSP core, targeting mid-range
multimedia phones. The demos run H.264 decoding at up to VGA resolution
without any hardware acceleration, as well as encoding and decoding MPEG4
clips, JPEGs and AAC audio streams.
CEVA GPS4000 is the industry's leading fully DSP-based GPS licensable
solution and delivers instant and exceptionally accurate location
information, specifically within indoor environments. The solution
provides more accurate location information in the time it takes
competitors to simply capture the signal for processing. CEVA GPS4000 is a
complete and licensable solution for baseband, offering near-instant
indoor location fix in less than 2.5 seconds and positional accuracy to
within 20 meters at -148dBm.
The combination of high indoor sensitivity, ultra low power consumption
and low solution cost makes CEVA GPS4000 a compelling solution for
wireless device manufacturers. The solution includes all baseband hardware
& software, supports standalone as well as Assisted GPS and is
optimized for GSM/GPRS and WCDMA environments.
At the show, CEVA will be demonstrating CEVA GPS4000 targeted at
GSM/W-CDMA networks and achieving unsurpassed location accuracy,
especially within harsh indoor environments.
