Signal processing licensor CEVA, Inc. (NASDAQ: CEVA) has introduced its most advanced communication DSP to meet the extreme performance requirements of multi-gigabit class modems, the company said.
Capitalizing on the company´s long-standing relationships with world-leading wireless vendors and its unique expertise in DSP architecture design, the CEVA-XC12 is purpose-built from the ground up to solve the most critical challenges of efficiently implementing 5G, gigabit LTE, MU-MIMO Wi-Fi and other multi-gigabit modems.
Already licensed to a leading wireless OEM, the CEVA-XC12 delivers up to 8x performance improvement and consumes 50% less power than its predecessor, the CEVA-XC4500, for a complete 5G baseband modem.
Technologies designed for wireless standards such as 5G will be capable of delivering a peak data rate of up to 20 Gbps under ultra-low latency of 1 millisecond. This is achieved utilizing innovative and extremely complex processing techniques such as Massive-MIMO and advanced 3D dynamic beamforming.
DSP processors deployed for today´s LTE-Advanced Pro and multi-gigabit wireless standards are simply not capable of efficiently delivering the speed, latency and overall DSP performance required to address the massive technology leap to 5G.
The CEVA-XC12 is the industry´s first DSP architecture offering the raw performance and power efficiency that is fundamental to the success of multi-gigabit class modems.
