CEVA-BX: A Hybrid DSP and Controller

CEVA-BX: A Hybrid DSP and Controller
by Bernard Murphy on 01-08-2019 at 7:00 am

I’ve noticed hybrid solutions popping up recently (I’m reminded of NXP’s crossover MCU released in 2017). These are generally a fairly clear indicator that market needs are shifting; what once could be solved with an application processor or controller or DSP or whatever, now needs two (or more) of these. In performance/power/price-sensitive… Read More


Webinar: Turnkey Bluetooth True Wireless Stereo Earbuds and Speakers

Webinar: Turnkey Bluetooth True Wireless Stereo Earbuds and Speakers
by Bernard Murphy on 12-01-2018 at 7:00 am

When we were first introduced to earbuds, in-ear speakers connected through thin wires to your phone (and earlier portable music devices), they seemed pretty convenient for private entertainment at work, while walking, exercising, doing almost anything. Until we started to realize those long dangly wires weren’t ideal. They’d… Read More


Wi-Fi Standards Simplified

Wi-Fi Standards Simplified
by Bernard Murphy on 11-01-2018 at 7:00 am

In the world of communications, the industry fairly quickly got a handle on a naming convention for cellular technology generations that us non-communication geeks could understand – 2G, 3G, 4G and now 5G, (though some of us could never quite understand the difference between 4G and LTE, at least as those terms are widely and no … Read More


The Cloud-Edge Debate Replays Inside the Car

The Cloud-Edge Debate Replays Inside the Car
by Bernard Murphy on 10-25-2018 at 7:00 am

I think we’re all familiar with the cloud/edge debate on where intelligence should sit. In the beginning the edge devices were going to be dumb nodes with just enough smarts to ship all their data to the cloud where the real magic would happen – recognizing objects, trends, need for repair, etc. Then we realized that wasn’t the best… Read More


Mesh Networks, Redux

Mesh Networks, Redux
by Bernard Murphy on 09-27-2018 at 7:00 am

It isn’t hard to understand the advantage of mesh networking (in wireless networks). Unlike star/tree configurations in which end-points connect to a nearby hub (such as phones connecting to a conventional wireless access point), in a mesh nodes can connect to nearest neighbors, which can connect to their nearest neighbors… Read More


The Robots are Coming!

The Robots are Coming!
by Bernard Murphy on 08-30-2018 at 7:00 am

Moshe Sheier, VP Marketing at CEVA, recently got back from MWC Shanghai and commented that robots are clearly trending. He saw hordes of robots from dozens of companies, begging for someone to brand and offer them in any one of many possible applications: in an airport to guide you to a connecting flight, for elder care, in hospitals… Read More


Dragonfly-NB2: You Can Have It All in Your IoT Device

Dragonfly-NB2: You Can Have It All in Your IoT Device
by Bernard Murphy on 07-03-2018 at 7:00 am

I wrote last month about CEVA’s Dragonfly-NB1 platform, a single-chip IoT solution supporting narrow-band cellular communication; this can meet aggressive total solution price-targets for high-volume deployment, long-range access and the low-power needed for 10+ year battery lifetimes. That solution, based on Release… Read More


Single-Chip Narrow-Band IoT

Single-Chip Narrow-Band IoT
by Bernard Murphy on 06-05-2018 at 7:00 am

Many factors go into building a competitive solution for the IoT, but few are as important for high-volume applications as low cost – not just chip cost but total system cost. If your customers are going to deploy thousands, tens of thousands or even millions of your devices in cities, factories, logistics applications, power grids… Read More


Webinar: Custom SoCs for Narrowband IoT

Webinar: Custom SoCs for Narrowband IoT
by Daniel Nenni on 05-30-2018 at 7:00 am

This joint CEVA and Open-Silicon webinar, moderated by myself, will elaborate on Narrowband IoT (NB-IoT) custom SoC solutions that are based on the CEVA-Dragonfly IP subsystem, and serve a wide range of cost- and power-sensitive IoT applications. Those joining the webinar will learn about the CEVA-Dragonfly NB1 IP subsystem,… Read More


Worldwide Design IP Revenue Grew 12.4% in 2017

Worldwide Design IP Revenue Grew 12.4% in 2017
by Daniel Nenni on 05-11-2018 at 7:00 am

When starting SemiWiki we focused on three market segments: EDA, IP, and the Foundries. Founding SemiWiki bloggers Daniel Payne and Paul McLellan were popular EDA bloggers with their own sites and I blogged about the foundries so we were able to combine our blogs and hit the ground running. For IP I recruited Dr. Eric Esteve who had… Read More
