Ceva Inc. has announced the X1620 DSP core in silicon running at 550MHz (TSMC 0.13?m). Surpassing 550MHz opens up a world of new market possibilities for DSP-based multimedia and communication solutions including high-performance video, voice, imaging and networking applications, and further establishes Ceva-X1620 as the fastest and most innovative licensable DSP core in the industry.

The Ceva-X1620 is complemented by a development platform and software development kit (SDK). The development platform incorporates all standard audio/video interfaces (5.1 channel audio, analog and digital video), LCD screen, CMOS sensor module, FPGAs for customers' system prototyping, flash and MMC slots, and an ARM core module expansion slot.

The Ceva-X1620 SDK includes an optimized C compiler, three types of simulators and an advanced debugger, all included in an integrated development environment (IDE). All components of Ceva-X tools are developed in-house by Ceva ensuring optimal performance.

"We are thrilled with the results of Ceva-X in silicon and the customer benefits of combining performance and power efficiency needed for today's modern DSP solutions," said Gideon Wertheizer, EVP of CEVA. "With unsurpassed performance in a DSP, CEVA-X is positioned to power an array of new markets such as portable and high-end home entertainment, wireless communications and broadband networking," Wertheizer added.
