CEVA, a licensor of wireless connectivity and smart sensing technologies, is to make its CEVA-BX1 and CEVA-BX2 Audio DSPs and audio front-end software stack available for commercial developers through the Intel Pathfinder for RISC-V* ecosystem.
A Strategic Member of RISC-V International, CEVA is making its audio DSPs and software stack accessible for prototyping and production design through the Intel FPGA based pre-silicon development platform.
Commenting Moshe Sheier, Vice President of Marketing at CEVA, said, “DSP is an essential technology for processing complex audio and voice workloads and this initiative makes it easier for the RISC-V ecosystem to research, evaluate and eventually productize SoCs incorporating our best-in-class IPs.”
“The availability of CEVA’s Audio DSPs and software IP for the Intel Pathfinder for RISC-V programme is another step in our commitment towards simplifying and accelerating the development of RISC-V platforms,” explained Vijay Krishnan, General Manager, RISC-V Ventures from Intel. “Complementary IP plays an important role in the RISC-V ecosystem and we’re pleased to partner with an industry leader like CEVA to broaden the IP offerings available to our users.”
