CA, USA, Dec. 14, 2010:- CEVA, Inc. the leading licensor of silicon intellectual property (SIP) platform solutions and DSP cores, today announced that PMC-Sierra, the premier Internet infrastructure semiconductor solution provider, has licensed its CEVA-VoP™ voice-over-IP platform for use in PMC-Sierra’s next generation system-on-chip (SoC) devices for Fiber-To-The-Home applications. CEVA-VoP is a complete hardware and software VoIP solution based on the CEVA-TeakLite-II DSP, designed to be deployed in integrated networking and VoP SoCs.

The CEVA-VoP platform is built on top of the widely adopted, fully programmable CEVA-TeakLite-II low-cost DSP engine, and the Xpert-TeakLite-II integrated subsystem – with cached memory, peripherals, and system interfaces – capable of handling multiple, simultaneous voice channels on a single core. The solution includes a fully integrated VoIP software suite, including speech compression and decompression, echo cancellation, telephony functions, and signaling/networking. The incorporated software is open, allowing design licensees to add proprietary algorithms and broaden the use of the design to other markets or applications.
