CEVA to Demonstrate Serial ATA PHY, Link, Transport and Command Layer Solution at Intel Developer Forum

San Jose, CA - February 10, 2004 - CEVA, Inc., (NASDAQ: CEVA;
LSE: CVA), the leading licensor of Digital Signal Processing (DSP) and
communications IP to the semiconductor industry, today announced it will
be exhibiting it's Xpert-Connect SATA Communication IP at the Intel
Developer Forum, San Francisco, Booth 741, from February 17 through 19.

Serial ATA (SATA) is a next generation storage interface standard
replacing the existing Parallel ATA physical storage interface. With the
Serial ATA standard already gaining considerable momentum in the market,
Xpert-Connect SATA Communication IP from CEVA provides a comprehensive and
silicon-proven solution for semiconductor and OEM companies needing to
rapidly and efficiently integrate SATA into their next generation system

Currently proven on TSMC 0.13um process, Xpert-Connect combines a SATA
1.5Gbps PHY and a Link/Transport/Command Protocol stack. Designed for
ultra-low power dissipation, Xpert-Connect delivers compliant SATA Gen-1
performance at 70mW per channel power. Using a comprehensive PC-based
demonstration system containing the Xpert-Connect SATA IP implemented on a
plug-in PCI card, interoperability has been achieved with leading serial
ATA drives such as Seagate Barracuda, Western Digital Raptor and Maxtor

SATA Communication IP is part of CEVA's Xpert-Connect family of serial
communications products covering standards ranging in speeds from 250Mbps
to 3.125Gbps. Building on the PHY technology demonstrated at IDF, SATA Gen
2 IP with 3Gb/sec data rates will be announced later this year.
Xpert-Connect has been licensed to a number of leading semiconductor
players, including an agreement with Kawasaki announced recently.

"Serial ATA is poised to become the dominant interface to storage
devices and a semiconductor market forecast to be worth $1 billion by
2006," said John Ryan, Vice President of Communications Business Unit of
CEVA. "Already silicon proven on TSMC 0.13um process, Xpert-Connect from
CEVA enables our licensees to deploy high-performance, low-power SATA
solutions with minimal risk and time-to-market."
