CEVA, Inc., has announced that it has been ranked by leading research firm The Linley Group as the worldwide leader in DSP IP shipments in 2011, with a 90% market share. The market share numbers were published in The Linley Group's recent report, titled "A Guide to CPU Cores and Processor IP".

"CEVA continues to be the most successful supplier of DSP IP — its licensees shipped more than one billion chips in 2011," said J. Scott Gardner, an analyst at The Linley Group and co-author of A Guide to CPU Cores and Processor IP. "CEVA has an impressive customer base for its DSP portfolio, especially in communications and multimedia. Furthermore, with the 4G transition well underway, high-performance programmable DSPs are required to efficiently handle complex multimode baseband processing. CEVA is well positioned to capitalize on this trend."

CEVA's industry-leading DSP cores power many of the world's leading semiconductors today for a broad range of applications including cellular baseband, imaging, vision, audio, voice, voice-over-IP and more. Addressing every advanced wireless standard, including LTE-Advanced, Wi-Fi 802.11ac and DTV demodulation, CEVA's latest generation communications DSP architecture framework, the CEVA-XC4000, sets a new milestone for power efficiency and utilizes an innovative instruction set to enable highly complex, software-based baseband processing. Likewise, the latest CEVA-TeakLite-4 DSP architecture framework for advanced audio and voice processing introduces innovative smart power management technology and supports customer-owned extensions, making it a highly flexible architecture and ideal for even the most area and power sensitive designs.
