CEVA Inc. and mimoOn GmbH have partnered to offer mimoOn's mi!MobilePHY advanced LTE software on CEVA's newest DSP core, the CEVA-XC.

mi!MobilePHY is a full-featured and certified LTE software solution for user equipment based on the March 2009 version of the 3GPP Standards Release 8. mimoOn's implementation on the CEVA-XC will support high channel bandwidths, multiple MIMO configurations, FDD/TDD, and high data rates at low power consumption. The software is written in high level language and is in modular form so it is easy to modify or customize; an important feature as the standards and market requirements for LTE continue to evolve.

CEVA-XC is a high-performance, low-power DSP processor designed and optimized for advanced wireless communications processing in mobile handsets as well as wireless infrastructure applications. A single CEVA-XC core is capable of handling complete 3.5G and 4G transceiver paths in software. As a fully programmable architecture CEVA-XC supports multiple air interfaces including LTE, WiMAX, HSPA, alongside 3G and 2G in software.

"mimoOn has been the first in the world to offer end-to-end LTE software and reference designs on flexible upgradeable platforms, while CEVA is the number one licensor of DSP IP worldwide," stated Thomas Kaiser, CEO of mimoOn. "This collaboration offers a turnkey solution for LTE devices providing fast time-to-market, reduced BOM and the ability to evolve with future requirements."

"Our partnership with mimoOn allows us to offer a standards-compliant, integrated solution for LTE baseband which can significantly simplify the design process and shorten time to market for our CEVA-XC licensees," said Eran Briman, VP corporate marketing of CEVA. "mimoOn's proven expertise in developing SDR solutions and CEVA's proven track record in providing DSPs to the wireless baseband market are strategic factors for customers looking for a software-based LTE platform."
