Sckipio Licenses and Deploys CEVA-XC Communications DSP in World's First Chipsets

MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., Oct. 27, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- CEVA, Inc. (NASDAQ: CEVA), the leading licensor of DSP-based IP platforms for vision, audio, communications and connectivity, today announced that Sckipio Technologies has licensed and deployed the CEVA-XC DSP in the world's first modem chipsets. The outstanding performance capabilities of CEVA's DSP provide the processing horsepower for Sckipio's modems to deliver 1Gbps broadband access over existing copper wiring.

The new ultra-broadband standard requires high performance vectoring technology to achieve high end user throughput. By leveraging the CEVA-XC DSP and several unique CEVA-XC DSP mechanisms, Sckipio is able to achieve the highest vectoring performance ever achieved – up to 64 subscribers in a vectoring group. Sckipio was the first company to demonstrate vectoring on 16 subscriber lines at the Broadband World Forum last week.

"The CEVA-XC DSP delivers the optimal balance of programmability and processing horsepower required for our new modem chipsets," said David Baum, CEO of Sckipio. "Our close collaboration with the CEVA engineering team and their outstanding technical support enabled us to achieve the speed performance which is essential to the success of our chip."

"Sckipio is the leader and pioneer in modems and we are pleased to collaborate with them to successfully introduce their latest modem products," said Eran Briman, vice president of marketing at CEVA. "Our CEVA-XC DSP provides Sckipio with the outstanding performance required to implement and allows for complete flexibility to enhance performance over time via software upgrades."

The CEVA-XC family of DSPs is designed specifically to overcome the stringent power consumption, time-to-market and cost constraints associated with developing high-performance ultra broadband modems. For more information, visit
