Today the semiconductor industry along with electronics industry is looking up to capitalize from massive expansion foreseen in IoT (Internet of Things) domain. In simple terms we can consider IoT as connectivity between machines which can communicate with each other and work as programmed. In localized applications such … Read More
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… Read More
The CEVA-TeakLite-4 is the DSP IP issued from the TeakLite family, started about 15 years ago with the 16-bit, single MAC TeakLite. Now the TeakLite-4 is a 32-bit, quad MAC IP core, supporting 2G/3G/4G Wireless BaseBand or PowerLine Communication. But even the latest BaseBand computational requirement doesn’t saturate this… Read More
We’ve become familiar with Imagination Technologies as a leading provider of IP for mobile GPUs, and within the last year the acquisition of the MIPS architecture has established them further in NPU and SoC circles. Their latest move targets an IP solution more in line with their heritage.
Imagination, way before becoming famous… Read More
In 2002 few people outside of Steve Jobs, could have predicted the iPhone. But a forward-looking technology CEO could expect Moore’s Law to extend into portable devices as it did with PCs. While 2G and 2.5G cellular phones were shipping in the hundreds of millions, the features were rather primitive. 3G, 4G, WiFi, Bluetooth,… Read More
Now that the mobile market is keeping us all employed, take a close look at what is actually inside those devices we can’t live without. Before SoCs you could just read the codes on the chips. Now it is all Semiconductor IP so you have to do a little more diligence to find out what is really powering your phones and tablets. One thing you… Read More
NFCis all over the news. Payments from your phone, yeah! I was wondering why this is a big deal, and why it has taken so long to gain momentum. I was issued a RFID enabled employee badge (JavaCard) 10 years ago while working at Sun. RFID is now so prevalent that Walmart attaches RFID tags to clothes. I spent an hour wading around the internet… Read More
