The DSP is dead! Long Live the DSP… IP core!

The DSP is dead! Long Live the DSP… IP core!
by Eric Esteve on 07-20-2013 at 9:05 am

Trying to trace DSP birth as a standard IC product, you come back to the early 80’s, when a certain Computer manufacturer named IBM has asked to a certain Semi-Conductor giant (at that time) named Texas Instruments if they could turn a lab concept, Digital Signal Processor, into a standard product that IBM could buy to TI, like they… Read More


CEVA and ARM Do LTE

CEVA and ARM Do LTE
by Paul McLellan on 07-19-2013 at 8:23 pm

If you have purchased a high-end cell-phone or tablet in the last couple of years it probably has LTE, although some carriers try and blur things by showing a symbol like 4G when you are in an area that has LTE despite the fact that your phone does not support it. Don’t you love cell-phone marketing? Talking of which, if a camel … Read More


Smartphone Shipment Explosion Sustained by $50-$75 devices, Mostly in China

Smartphone Shipment Explosion Sustained by $50-$75 devices, Mostly in China
by Eric Esteve on 07-01-2013 at 9:21 am

Until recently, talking about smartphone incredible shipment growth was understood as shipments of A5 iPhone or Galaxy Note, and this was true. Devices priced at $500 or more are shipping like baguette in Paris, but this fact is only true in Europe, Korea, Japan or USA. Does that means that people living populated countries like… Read More

MUST: DSP ready solution for tomorrow smartphone based on CEVA-XC 4000
by Eric Esteve on 02-24-2013 at 5:13 am

Like Guiness dark beer, competition is good for you! I mean good for end user, as it pushes DSP IP supplier to provide ever better solution. I am not talking about me-to type of competition, like that we have seen in the past with IBM trying to displace TI at Nokia, by offering a LEAD (DSP IP core from TI used in every NOKIA wireless phone… Read More

Audio/Voice DSP IP core: the next road to billion unit shipment

Audio/Voice DSP IP core: the next road to billion unit shipment
by Eric Esteve on 01-04-2013 at 6:09 am

When mentioning CEVA DSP IP cores, the first reaction is to think about the complexes DSP functions used into wireless Modem Application like 3G and Long Term Evolution (LTE). Considering that CEVA market share is above 70% for these products, such a reaction makes sense. But did you knew that CEVA DSP IP cores are also empowering… Read More

by Eric Esteve on 11-23-2012 at 4:21 am

We have seen in a previous post that Imagination Technologies has proposed to buy MIPS, in fact “MIPS operating business and certain patent properties, as well as license rights to all of the remaining patent properties”. Translated into understandable language Imagination has offered $60M for MIPS Processor IP core portfolio,… Read More
