Companies collaborate to deliver full LTE eNodeB PHY Solution on CEVA-XC™ processor.
Oak Brook, IL and SAN JOSE, Calif. — February 16, 2010 — ArrayComm LLC and CEVA, Inc. [(NASDAQ: CEVA); (LSE: CVA)], today announced an agreement to work toward the implementation of ArrayComm’s full LTE eNodeB PHY on the CEVA-XC™ DSP core. This will provide SoC product developers with a pre-optimized PHY software/processor package to incorporate in their overall system design. This collaboration is supported by the CEVA-XCnet™ Partnership Program, of which ArrayComm is an original member.
The CEVA-XC processor is designed and optimized for high-performance, low power communications processing, with a single core capable of handling complete 4G transceiver paths fully in software. ArrayComm’s LTE eNodeB PHY is a fully scalable baseband physical layer solution incorporating ArrayComm’s industry-leading A-MAS™ multi-antenna signal processing software. Delivering these two powerful components as a pre-optimized package allows SoC developers to simultaneously reduce program costs and time to market.
“LTE requires high capacity with minimal cost, and SoC technology is the critical component for scalable LTE infrastructure platforms,” said Bruce Duysen, President of ArrayComm. “CEVA’s CEVA-XC DSP offers the highest-performance flexible processor architecture for LTE infrastructure and we are excited to partner with them to accelerate the delivery of base stations.”
“CEVA has a long history of partnering with industry-leading technology suppliers to develop market-specific, SoC products to minimize design costs and time-to-market, said Eran Briman, VP of marketing at CEVA. “Our collaboration with ArrayComm to deliver a full featured eNodeB PHY solution on our CEVA-XC DSP enables our mutual customers to enter the LTE infrastructure market with lower associated risk and cost.”
ArrayComm is a provider of physical layer solutions for wireless infrastructure and client device applications.
