CEVA and NEC Casio collaborate on next-gen mobile comms
Wireless baseband technologies are evolving fast through multiple 3G and 4G standards including: HSPA+, WiMAX and LTE. Next generation wireless modems are required to address the dramatically growing complexity in multiple aspects, including: download and upload peak data rates, antenna scheme, spatial multiplexing, synchronization, and more.
Seven of the world’s top eight handset OEMs ship CEVA-powered baseband processors today, meaning CEVA’s DSP technology powers one out of every three handsets worldwide. Addressing next-generation 4G terminal and infrastructure markets, CEVA says its latest generation DSP, the CEVA-XC has been specifically architected to overcome the stringent power consumption, time-to-market and cost constraints associated with developing high-performance Software Defined Radio multimode solutions.
It supports multiple air interfaces in software, including LTE-A, LTE, TD-LTE, WiMAX 16m, HSPA+, HSPA, TD-SCDMA, GSM and CDMA.
