A variety of visible light- and infrared-based technologies are currently available for determining objects' locations in 3D space, as well as ascertaining their surface shapes and movements. However, these approaches sometimes come with privacy concerns; they also are unable to see inside
CEVA's DSP cores have long been a fixture in many mobile phone cellular modems, where they handle the tranceiver's digital signal processing functions, working alongside function-specific hardware accelerators. However, the physical layer coordination between the transmit and receiver

Hear the words "high volume DSP market" and you might automatically think of "mobile phones". And you'd be right; recent estimates peg quarterly worldwide mobile phone shipments approaching half a trillion units, with smartphones (which often contain multiple DSP
The "Internet of Things" (IoT), one of the hottest topics in technology today, is widely anticipated to be a notable driver of both semiconductor and software demand in coming years. Key to an understanding of the IoT opportunity, as a recent article published on the Embedded Vision
Massively parallel processor supplier Tilera is a company that InsideDSP has kept an eye on for nearly a decade now, stretching back to BDTI's benchmarking of the company's first-generation TILE architecture in its 64-core form (see sidebar " Company, Architecture and Product

The title of the press release for CEVA's latest XC-4500 communications DSP core , introduced in mid-October, claims that it's the "World's First Vector Floating-Point DSP for Wireless Infrastructure Solutions." Those of you with good memories might be confused at this
The cellular base station and its associated infrastructure topology have remained largely unchanged throughout the industry's history to date, although upgrades have periodically occurred to address the needs of evolving voice and data standards. Within each base station are beefy
Cost- and power consumption-sensitive digital signal processing applications tend to leverage fixed point processors, for a common fundamental reason: fixed-point processor cores are substantially less complex than their floating-point counterparts, leading to reductions in transistor count and
After some five years of architecture definition work and several years of development, Freescale's new StarCore SC3900 DSP core will see its first silicon implementation next quarter in the QorIQ Qonverge B4860 processor for macrocell base station designs, unveiled last month at the Mobile

Technology advances ever onward over time, and in fact its pace has accelerated since Jack Kilby's initial integrated circuit demonstration in 1958. So it is that, while CEVA's DSP core licensees are demonstrating SoCs based on the company's current-generation CEVA-XC323 (see
