ParthusCeva Demonstrates First Licenseable 802.11a IP Platform Running Over 5 GHz Link

Santa Clara, CA - 03 December 2002 - ParthusCeva, Inc. (Nasdaq:
PCVA, LSE: PCV) the leading licensor of digital signal processors (DSP)
cores and related Intellectual Property (IP) to the semiconductor
industry, today announced the first licensable IEEE 802.11a compliant IP
platform at 5GHz. ParthusCeva demonstrated this solution to an audience of
ParthusCeva customers at its offices in San Jose, CA last month generating
positive comment on product's performance and robustness.

In another first for ParthusCeva, this 5GHz version of the In8Stream™
802.11a platform demonstrated the maturity of the ParthusCeva solution and
showed the capabilities of the novel architecture used. Highlights of this
demonstration included:

Full 802.11a functionality using a commercial off-the-shelf
5GHz radio
interoperability with a commercial third party access point
speed system operation (clocked at 80MHz)
802.11a specification compliance
of all modulation modes/rates for 802.11a baseband

"We are extremely excited to demonstrate this breakthrough 802.11 IP
capability to a wider audience. Through the In8Stream platform we are
showing technology leadership within the 802.11 IP environment building on
our market leadership in related wireless markets such as Bluetooth, said
Gerry Maguire, VP and GM of Wireless Solutions Division, ParthusCeva. "The
In8Stream™ platform is already having a significant impact on the market
and we are confident that with the wider adoption of our 802.11a
technology we will further secure our market leading position in
short-range wireless communications."

Our interoperable multi-mode b/a/g MAC Hardware core demonstration can
be viewed at the '802.11 Planet Conference', Santa Clara Convention Center
(December 3-5, 2002).

About In8Stream™

Fully IEEE 802.11 compliant, In8Stream™ incorporates a multi-mode b/a/g
MAC Hardware core, a complete software stack for station or access point
applications and 802.11a multi-protocol baseband core. The In8Stream™
architecture incorporates numerous differentiating features including:

The architecture substantially reduces memory and processor
costs, which enables ParthusCeva to deliver an IP platform with the
lowest cost of deployment in the industry

In8Stream™ has been architected around a programmable
communications processor, enables higher bandwidth versions of the
802.11standard to be easily accommodated

A mixed hardware and software architecture means emerging standards
such as 802.11i, e and h can be implemented in software without the need
for new silicon.

About 802.11

802.11 is a family of specifications for wireless local area networks
(WLANs) developed by a working group of the Institute of Electrical and
Electronics Engineers (IEEE). There are currently three specifications in
the family: 802.11, 802.11a and 802.11b. The most recently proposed
standard, 802.11g (which will be added next year), offers wireless
transmission in the 2.4 GHz ISM band at data rates up to 54 megabits per
second (Mbps) compared with the 11 megabits per second of the 802.11b
