Ceva Inc. leads in the DSP IP shipment ranking in 2011, according to The Linley Group. In its report titled, "A Guide to CPU Cores and Processor IP," The Linley Group noted that Ceva grabbed 90 percent of the market share.

"CEVA continues to be the most successful supplier of DSP IPits licensees shipped more than one billion chips in 2011," said J. Scott Gardner, an analyst at The Linley Group and co-author of the report.

"Ceva has an impressive customer base for its DSP portfolio, especially in communications and multimedia. Furthermore, with the 4G transition well underway, high-performance programmable DSPs are required to efficiently handle complex multimode baseband processing. Ceva is well positioned to capitalize on this trend," Gardner added.

Gideon Wertheizer, Ceva's CEO commented, "Ceva is pleased to be ranked yet again as the worldwide leader in DSP IP by The Linley Group." "Our unrivalled expertise in DSP technology for high volume mobile and digital home applications drives our success and is the reason we are the DSP-of-choice for many of the world's leading semiconductors and OEMs," he said.

Ceva's DSP cores power many of the world's leading semiconductors today for a broad range of applications including cellular baseband, imaging, vision, audio, voice, voice-over-IP and more, the company said. Addressing every advanced wireless standard, including LTE-Advanced, WiFi 802.11ac and DTV demodulation, Ceva's latest generation communications DSP architecture framework, the CEVA-XC4000, sets a new milestone for power efficiency and utilizes an innovative instruction set to enable highly complex, software-based baseband processing. Likewise, the new CEVA-TeakLite-4 DSP architecture framework for advanced audio and voice processing introduces innovative smart power management technology and supports customer-owned extensions, making it a highly flexible architecture and ideal for even the most area and power sensitive designs.
