Demonstration platforms on display at CEVA's stand include:

  • Software-defined LTE user equipment demo – Together with CEVAnet partner mimoOn GmbH, CEVA will demonstrate a live 20Mbps transport of HD video streams over LTE using MIMO2*2 and 64QAM. This LTE UE demonstration is based on a commercially available solution, now in design with leading wireless vendors.  The UE solution incorporates the CEVA-XC processor running mimoOn's mi!MobilePHY™ software over CEVA's LTE and communication library functions.
  • Multiview Video Coding (MVC) demo – CEVA will demonstrate MVC decoder with stereoscopic view (3D) in HD resolution, implemented fully in software on the CEVA-MM3000 video & imaging processing platform. In addition, an HD H.264 decoder will be demonstrated, emphasizing the true multi-standard nature of the platform.
  • Gesture Recognition, Natural User Interface demo – Together with CEVAnet partner eyeSight Mobile Technologies, CEVA will demonstrate gesture recognition, face detection and video decoding running simultaneously on the CEVA-MM2000 multimedia platform.
  • Multi-microphone noise cancellation demo – Together with CEVAnet partner Alango Technologies, CEVA will demonstrate beam-forming voice technology running on the CEVA-TeakLite-III DSP. This technology creates an acoustic bubble (handset mode) or acoustic sector (speakerphone mode) which significantly reduces background noise, wind and other interference and improves voice clarity.


At the show, more than sixty CEVA licensees, partners and OEMs will display CEVA-powered™ products and solutions, including Broadcom, Ericsson, Intel Mobile Communications, LG, Mediatek, Nokia, Mindspeed, Rockchip, Samsung, ST-Ericsson, Sony Ericsson, Ubiquisys, Vodafone and ZTE. New CEVA-powered products debuting at the show will include feature phones, smartphones, tablets, notebooks, machine-to-machine wireless modules, eReaders, and femtocells.

CEVA dominates the DSP licensing market with a 78% market share^ and is the world's #1 deployed DSP architecture in cellular baseband processing, powering 36% of all baseband processors shipped in Q3 2010^^.
