Silicon intellectual property (SIP) licensor Ceva Inc. has collaborated with Chinese wireless applications IC provider Beken Corporation. Beken recently licensed CEVA's Bluetooth 2.1+EDR and Bluetooth 4.0 Low Energy IP solutions for the development of Bluetooth-enabled ICs.

CEVA-Bluetooth 4.0 IP consists of RTL base band hardware coupled with an ANSI C software stack. Designed for flexibility, portability and configurability, it is ideal for integration into a wide range of embedded applications. The IP has fully-gated clock operation for low power, and employs standard interfaces such as AMBA (for the processor hardware interface) and BlueRF (for the radio hardware interface).

"CEVA provided outstanding engineering support when developing and certifying our 2.1+EDR Bluetooth-enabled product based on their IP," said Dawei Guo, VP of Engineering of Beken Corporation. "We are delighted to extend our relationship with CEVA to include their Bluetooth 4.0 Low Energy Platform as we address the burgeoning smartphone and tablet peripherals markets with our latest ICs."

CEVA-Bluetooth 4.0 is available as a Single Mode (SM) IP package in which a die-efficient Bluetooth Low Energy solution is provided and also as a Dual Mode (DM) IP package whereby the Bluetooth Low Energy protocol is combined with Classic Bluetooth. The Single Mode IP is aimed at Bluetooth Smart products such as keyboards, body-wear sensor products for medical and sports, toys and environment sensors. The Dual Mode IP is primarily aimed at next-generation, multi-radio connectivity chips for Bluetooth Smart Ready products, e.g. smartphones, tablets and other mobile computing platforms.
