The RivieraWaves Bluetooth IPs and platforms provide comprehensive implementations for both Bluetooth LE and Bluetooth dual mode connectivity. Each IP consists of a hardware baseband controller, plus a feature-rich software protocol stack. A flexible radio interface allows the platforms to be deployed with either RivieraWaves Bluetooth PHY (modem and RF) or various RF IP from partners, enabling optimal selection of foundry and process node. All Bluetooth 5 features are supported, including LE 2Mbps data rate, Long Range and LE Advertising Extension. Widely adopted with different processor subsystems, CEVA also offers RISC-V based fully integrated platforms.
Bluetooth 5 dual mode is the latest version of the ubiquitous Bluetooth standard. It concurrently couples all the latest Bluetooth 5 low energy features such as LE 2Mbps, Long Range and LE Advertising Extension, together with the classic Bluetooth BR/EDR operation. Bluetooth 5 dual mode products can therefore benefit from the latest low power features while being fully interoperable with the billions of existing Bluetooth products, with full support for high quality audio, a key feature of many Bluetooth products.
Vincent Tai, CEO of ASR, commented: “CEVA is a key partner to ASR, providing us with leading-edge technology that allows us to develop best-in-class products. The RivieraWaves Bluetooth 5 dual mode IP ensures we can incorporate the latest Bluetooth features into our chip designs, and stay ahead of the competition.”
