ZTE licenses CEVA-XC DSP to power LTE TDD/FDD SoCs
Aug 22, 2013 (MarketLine via COMTEX) --
CEVA, Inc., a licensor of silicon intellectual property platform solutions and DSP cores, has announced that ZTE Corporation, a provider of telecommunications equipment, network solutions and mobile devices, has licensed the CEVA-XC DSP to power its next generation of LTE TDD/FDD multi-mode base station system-on-chips, or SoCs.
The programmable CEVA-XC DSP enables ZTE to develop a powerful, scalable software-defined radio (SDR) platform for networking infrastructure that can support multiple air interface standards for base station rollouts and upgrades, worldwide.
"With its capability to support multiple air interface standards including LTE and 3G in one platform, the flexible CEVA-XC DSP is an outstanding processor architecture to serve the future needs of cellular base station SoCs," said a spokesperson for ZTE. "The processing power and the inherent low heat dissipation offered by the CEVA-XC allow us to implement a software-centric platform, simplifying our product development and maintenance, and significantly improving our overall base station efficiency."
"We have made a significant R&D investment over the last few years to ensure that our CEVA-XC architecture is primed for wireless infrastructure applications," said Gideon Wertheizer, CEO of CEVA. "ZTE is a recognized leader in networking infrastructure worldwide with a strong commitment to be at the forefront of future trends. Their decision to adopt the CEVA-XC for its base station roadmap is a strong endorsement of our DSP technologies serving this high-performance market."
The CEVA-XC family of DSPs is designed specifically to overcome the stringent power consumption, time-to-market and cost constraints associated with developing high performance multimode baseband solutions. It supports multiple air interfaces for various applications such as cellular baseband, wireless infrastructure, connectivity, digital broadcast, satellite and smart grid.
