CEVA, incorporating RivieraWaves, is the leading IP vendor providing solutions for both Bluetooth low energy and Bluetooth dual mode (i.e. Bluetooth classic combined with Bluetooth low energy), with a long pedigree stretching back more than fifteen years. With dozens of customers and numerous products in mass production, CEVA Bluetooth IP has shipped in more than a billion devices to date.
Aviv Malinovitch, vice president and general manager of CEVA’s Connectivity business unit, stated: “We are delighted with the exciting enhancements Bluetooth 5 will bring to customers and we see very strong traction in the market for these features. Indeed, we already have some licensees with silicon prototypes implementing some of these Bluetooth 5 features and we look forward to the wide scale deployment of Bluetooth 5 in due course.”
The RivieraWaves Bluetooth IP platforms consist of a hardware baseband controller, plus a feature-rich software protocol stack. For Bluetooth low energy, this protocol stack encompasses the Link Layer up to the GAP/GATT plus a comprehensive set of Services and Profiles. For Bluetooth dual mode, this protocol stack presents an industry standard HCI interface. A flexible radio interface allows the platform to be deployed with either RivieraWaves RF or various partners’ RF IP, enabling optimal selection of foundry and process node.
