CEVA’s BLE IP powers NXP's QN9000 Bluetooth Smart SoCs

CEVA has announced that NXP Semiconductor’s QN9000 series of Bluetooth Smart SoC products and solutions are powered by RivieraWaves Bluetooth Smart IP. Leveraging the ultra-low power performance of RivieraWaves Bluetooth Smart, NXP’s SoCs dramatically simplify the innovation of next-gen wearables, smart home, digital health and other devices that comprise the IoT.

RivieraWaves Bluetooth Smart IP provides a very low power, low MIPs and low gate count platform for applications requiring Single Mode BLE, for example smartwatches, hearing aids, wearable sensors for medical /sports (heart rate, glucose, temperature), remote controls, toys, environment sensors, location beacons and many other machine–machine communications. Qualified to the latest Bluetooth Smart 4.2 specification, the Bluetooth Smart IP consists of a hardware baseband controller coupled with a complete software stack including Profiles.

In addition to Bluetooth Smart 4.2, the RivieraWaves Bluetooth Smart Ready 4.2 and WiFi 802.11a/b/g/n/ac connectivity IP platforms can be seamlessly integrated for customers requiring multiple wireless standards in their product designs. The platforms also incorporate a smart co-existence interface which handles WiFi/Bluetooth traffic arbitration to avoid interference.

Aviv Malinovitch, Vice President and General Manager, Connectivity business unit, CEVA, commented: "We are delighted to announce NXP as a licensee for our Bluetooth Smart IP, further extending our position as the undisputed leader in connectivity IP for the IoT and beyond. NXP is at the forefront of innovation in the IoT domain and we’re excited to partner with them as they continue push the boundaries of how we interact with the devices and objects in the world around us.”
