CEVA Inc. has revealed that Renesas Electronics Corp. licensed the CEVA-XC DSP to power a new generation of wireless communications SoCs for intelligent transport systems (ITS). The programmable nature of the CEVA-XC will enable Renesas to create a software-defined radio (SDR) SoC offering ultra-high performance and requiring minimal power consumption, the firms noted.

"The CEVA-XC DSP delivers outstanding performance and flexibility required for wireless communication products for the ITS market together, with the ability to adapt the SoC to future standards through software upgrades," said Tatsuya Nishihara, VP, chief of automotive solutions business division, 1st solution business unit of Renesas. "Furthermore, the silicon-based CEVA-XC development platform provides our engineers with a real-time environment to develop software, significantly reducing the development efforts and costs associated with our wireless SoC."

"Flexibility through software and low power consumption are key pillars of our CEVA-XC DSP framework, enabling our customers to create powerful baseband processors for any communications requirements," said Gideon Wertheizer, CEO of CEVA. ""We are very pleased to add Renesas to our long list of customers who can leverage this value proposition to deliver industry-leading products based on our DSPs. Renesas' software-defined radio approach based on our DSP will enable them to achieve significant differentiation in the market place with their SoC."

The CEVA-XC family of DSPs is designed specifically to overcome the stringent power consumption, time-to-market and cost constraints associated with developing high-performance SDR multi-mode solutions. It supports multiple air interfaces for various applications such as multi-mode cellular baseband, connectivity, digital broadcast, satellite and smart grid.
