Bluetooth 4.0 is the latest generation Bluetooth standard and the new Low Energy protocol within this specification is proving to be the biggest innovation in the Bluetooth market in many years. As a result, Bluetooth 4.0 is creating new high volume markets in low power peripheral products for consumer, healthcare, medical and sporting applications.

Aviv Malinovitch, vice president of operations at CEVA, stated: "With the firm adoption of Bluetooth 4.0 by leading smartphone and tablet vendors, there is an abundance of companies looking to integrate Bluetooth 4.0 into their next silicon. CEVA has a strong reputation and proven track record for Bluetooth IP for many years, and through our partnership with Orca, we can offer our customers a complete Bluetooth reference design for those who lack radio technology or wish to accelerate their own radio development."

"We are delighted to partner with CEVA to address the Bluetooth 4.0 market," said Guruswami Sridharan, founder and CEO of Orca Systems. "By combining Orca's Bluetooth RF and modem IP with CEVA's baseband and software stack we can quickly accelerate customer's chip developments for both single mode and dual mode applications in this exciting market."

CEVA and Orca will demonstrate the latest Bluetooth 4.0 technology in CEVA's and Orca's meeting suites at CES 2013, Jan 8-11, 2013 in Las Vegas. Orca will be located in LVH Hospitality Suite 2450 in the Las Vegas Hotel. To request a demonstration at the event, email [email protected].

About CEVA-Bluetooth 4.0 IP

CEVA-Bluetooth 4.0 IP consists of RTL baseband hardware coupled with an ANSI C software stack. Designed for flexibility, portability and configurability, it is ideal for integration into a wide range of embedded applications. The IP has fully-gated clock operation for low power, and employs standard interfaces such as AMBA (for the processor hardware interface) and BlueRF (for the radio hardware interface). It is available as a Single Mode (SM) IP package in which a die-efficient Bluetooth Low Energy solution is provided and also as a Dual Mode (DM) IP package whereby the Bluetooth Low Energy protocol is combined with Classic Bluetooth. CEVA-Bluetooth 4.0.SM is aimed at Bluetooth Smart products such as keyboards, body-wear sensor products for medical and sports, toys and environment sensors. CEVA-Bluetooth 4.0.DM is primarily aimed at next-generation, multi-radio connectivity chips for Bluetooth Smart Ready products, e.g. smartphones, tablets and other mobile computing platforms. See http://www.ceva-dsp.com/Wireless-Handsets.html for further details on CEVA-Bluetooth and also CEVA's solutions for Wi-Fi 802.11ac and GNSS.
