Infineon Technologies Licenses Parthusceva's TeakLite DSP Core

SAN JOSE, CA, September 3, 2003 - ParthusCeva, Inc. (Nasdaq:
PCVA, LSE: PCV) the leading licensor of Digital Signal Processor (DSP)
cores and solutions to the semiconductor industry, announced today that
ParthusCeva's TeakLite® DSP core is powering Infineon Technologies' latest
single-chip GSM/GPRS wireless baseband controller, the S-GOLDlite™.
Infineon's licensing of the TeakLite DSP core for its next generation
GSM/GPRS baseband builds on many years of successful use of ParthusCeva's
earlier DSP core, OAKDSP®, which Infineon had deployed to power previous
2G and 2.5G wireless and wireline communications products. For the
S-GOLDlite™ wireless baseband controller, Infineon has combined
ParthusCeva's TeakLite DSP core with the ARM926™ microprocessor in a
highly optimized single-chip solution delivering full GPRS class-12
support and high-performance multimedia capabilities. "We are delighted to
extend our long-standing relationship with Infineon Technologies through
the deployment of our TeakLite DSP core in their 2.5G S-GOLDlite
baseband," said Chet Silvestri, CEO of ParthusCeva. "Infineon 2G baseband
solutions, powered by ParthusCeva DSP cores have achieved tremendous
market success, and we look forward to replicating that success with their
new generation 2.5G GPRS and EDGE chipsets."
