DSP Group License CEVA Audio DSP For HDClear Voice Enhancement Solution

MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., Feb. 25, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- CEVA, Inc. (NASDAQ: CEVA), the leading licensor of silicon intellectual property (SIP) platform solutions and DSP cores, today announced that DSP Group® (NASDAQ: DSPG), a leading global provider of wireless chipset solutions for converged communications, has licensed and deployed the CEVA-TeakLite-III DSP in the latest voice and audio SoC powering its innovative HDClear solution. The high-performance, low-power DBMD2 SoC enables enhanced noise cancellation and maximizes automatic speech recognition (ASR) accuracy in any environment, isolating voice from surrounding environmental noise, enabling mobile users to use their voice effectively anywhere. HDClearis designed to revolutionize the voice user experience in mobile and other consumer electronic devices. The HDClear solution and the DBMD2 SoC will be demonstrated at Mobile World Congress in CEVA's booth (Stand 7i70).

The demand for improved battery life in mobile devices and reduced energy consumption for consumer electronics dictates the need to offload complex and power-hungry audio and voice processing from the main CPU onto a dedicated low-power audio DSP. The DBMD2 SoC efficiently performs complex real-time signal processing functions like noise reduction, beam-forming, voice activation and virtual surround, in addition to addressing voice activation recognition performance and quality issues in noisy environments. The CEVA-TeakLite-III DSP at the core of the DBMD2 SoC easily handles all of these complex tasks, while leaving ample headroom on the DSP for customers and OEMs to further differentiate their product designs by adding proprietary or third party algorithms.

"The CEVA-TeakLite-III DSP provides the perfect balance of ultra-low power and exceptional audio/voice processing for our DBMD2 SoC at the heart of the HDClear solution," said Dr. Arie Heiman, Corporate Vice President and General Manager of HDMobile at DSP Group. "The maturity and robustness of the complete CEVA package, from the DSP implementation through to the CEVA Toolbox™ software development environment and hardware development kit helped us in reaching our demanding goals."

Eran Briman, vice president of marketing at CEVA, commented: "We are pleased to see the quick design turnaround time DSP Group has been able to achieve, with the DBMD2 SoC already available in silicon. The capabilities of their latest HDClear product offering are impressive and firmly position DSP Group on the leading edge of the market for advanced, low power audio/voice platforms. By using the programmable CEVA-TeakLite-III DSP as a foundation, DSP Group enables their customers to differentiate their products via software add-ons and updates, allowing them to evolve and adapt to new market requirements."
