Ceva recently announced that ZTE Corporation has licensed the CEVA-XC DSP to power its next generation of high-performance, LTE TDD/FDD multi-mode base station System-on-Chips (SoCs). The programmable CEVA-XC DSP enables ZTE to develop a scalable software-defined radio (SDR) platform for networking infrastructure that can support multiple air interface standards for base station rollouts and upgrades.

"With its capability to support multiple air interface standards including LTE and 3G in one platform, the flexible CEVA-XC DSP is an outstanding processor architecture to serve the future needs of cellular base station SoCs," said a spokesperson for ZTE. "The processing power and the inherent low heat dissipation offered by the CEVA-XC allow us to implement a software-centric platform, simplifying our product development and maintenance, and significantly improving our overall base station efficiency."

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 multi-mode base band solutions. It supports multiple air interfaces for various applications such as cellular base band, wireless infrastructure, and smart grid.

"We have made a significant R&D investment over the last few years to ensure that our CEVA-XC architecture is primed for wireless infrastructure applications," said Gideon Wertheizer, CEO of CEVA. "ZTE is a recognised leader in networking infrastructure worldwide with a strong commitment to be at the forefront of future trends. Their decision to adopt the CEVA-XC for its base station roadmap is a strong endorsement of our DSP technologies serving this high-performance market."

CEVA's DSP cores power many of the world's leading wireless semiconductors, enabling unrivaled power consumption, performance and cost efficiencies in 2G / 3G / 4G solutions. The company has more than 45 base band design wins to date, including more than 25 design wins for LTE and LTE-Advanced.
