The CEVA-XC4000 incorporates enhanced system-level mechanisms, queues and interfaces to deliver exceptional performance, realizing faster connectivity, higher bandwidth, lower latency and better PHY control. The architecture offers uncompromising modem quality using two distinct inter-mixable high-precision instruction sets, supporting the most advanced 4x4 and 8x8 MIMO algorithms.In order to better serve CEVA-XC4000 customers, CEVA has also announced today complete reference architectures targeting complex communication standards, including LTE-A Rel-10 and Wi-Fi 802.11ac supporting up to 1.7 Gbps, in collaboration with CEVA-XCnet partners mimoOn and Antcor. These reference architectures are complemented with highly optimized software libraries for LTE-A and Wi-Fi. Streamlined Software Development The CEVA-XC4000 DSP architecture is supported by CEVA-Toolbox™, a complete software development environment, incorporating Vec-C™ compiler technology for advanced vector processors, enabling the entire architecture to be programmed in C-level. An integrated simulator provides accurate and efficient verification of the entire system including the memory sub-systems. In addition, CEVA-Toolbox includes libraries, a graphical debugger, and a complete optimization tool chain named CEVA Application Optimizer. The Application Optimizer enables automatic and manual optimization applied in the C source code. For more information, visit www.ceva-dsp.com/CEVA-XC4000.html.
