    The official term is “beneficiary rule”, but among colorful racing broadcasters, drivers, and fans it is more commonly referred to as the “lucky dog”: the driver who is down a lap, but gets to advance to the lead lap by virtue of being farthest ahead when a caution flag is raised.

    Qualcomm has lapped the entire field when it comes to cellular baseband chipsets, holding 66% market share according to the latest figures from Strategy Analytics. ...

    To understand how challenging it is to successfully implement Always-on Technology, consider doing any kind of sport while holding your breath. Sounds crazy? There’s actually one sport in which participants do just that – ...

    I have recently blogged about CEVA acquisition of Riviera Waves, a very positive move to consolidate CEVA leading position of connectivity IP vendor (Bluetooth and WiFi). We know CEVA for years as being the leading supplier of DSP IP cores for the wireless phone market and it look ...

    Processor and GPU cores usually get the limelight, driven by the ARM and Imagination machines occupying the center square of most SoC designs. CEVA has quietly been assembling DSP IP in most of the squares around the edge, and may have just reached critical mass for wearables and IoT devices. ...

    Thanks to the recent acquisition of Riviera Waves, CEVA is expanding from Digital only DSP IP, to supporting complete solution (Digital + mixed-signal) for both WiFi and Bluetooth functions. Such a move is already a very good market positioning, as customers prefer buying to a single source the digital and the mixed-signal ...

    You can read all these articles in the latest CEVA Newsletter, if you didn’t read it first in Semiwiki! The blog describing the “Maximum Likelihood MIMO Implementation” is certainly going deep technically, as it introduce a complex Digital Signal Processing technique, Multiple Input Multiple Output (MIMO). MIMO is just like magic, as it could allow a x4 bandwidth multiplication, both for emission and reception. This DSP ...

    One aspect of always-on is power conservation, being able to respond to events without having a device constantly in full-power mode. This month, the announcement of the Amazon Fire Phone and details revealed about the Google Android Wear SDK suggest another important dimension: the competitive advantage of rapid, frictionless engagement. ...

    CEVA is well known as DSP IP core provider for Wireless Application Processor, but the Teak-Lite IP family is also very successful for Audio application, with more than 3 billion Audio IC shipped to date. CEVA is proposing a webinar addressing two of the most important IoT needs, a DSP based Audio implementation and CEVA-Bluetooth solution. If you take a look at this “IoT value chain” picture, you realize that the ideal solution should support ...

    Exchanging data through wireless network is that we are doing every day, every hour if not every minute. Not only we use our smartphone to discuss or exchange Emails, but also to download, or upload, massive amounts of data. Thus, the radio spectrum has become to be busy, and is an expansive piece for carriers. Optimizing this radio spectrum is both a technical and business ...

    Recently, I mentioned smartphone SoCs consume one, maybe two orders of magnitude too much power for broader use in wearables. However, that is only when they are “on”. To save power and stretch battery life, smartphones spend a lot of time napping – display off, sitting still with MEMS sensors powered down, waiting for an incoming phone call or text.

    The wearable use case – beyond the head-shrunken smartwatch, there are actually several use cases – can be quite different ...
