BARCELONA -- Comsys Communication and Signal Processing and CEVA, Inc. today announced that Comsys has licensed the CEVA-X1641™ Quad-MAC DSP Core for its latest generation of WiMAX baseband processors. Comsys will utilize the CEVA DSP core for the computation-intensive baseband processing functions within their converged and multimode cellular/mobile WiMAX solutions.

As a leading customer for the CEVA-X1641 DSP, Comsys’ background in cellular technology proved essential during the development stage, enabling CEVA to architect the DSP core specifically to meet the demanding performance requirements of converged cellular/mobile WiMAX and 4G baseband processing. Features include 4 simultaneous multipliers, a 128-bit data memory bandwidth and dedicated mechanisms such as dynamic and selective unit shutdowns and clock gating. As a result the powerful DSP core is equipped to handle data rates up 100Mb/s with very low power consumption, thus giving longer battery life in mobile handsets.

“The trend towards convergence of Cellular and WiMAX technologies for handsets continues to build momentum, and Comsys is committed to enabling this convergence through the development of advanced baseband processors supporting current and future profiles,” said Ehud Reshef, Product Manager at Comsys. “The exceptional performance and the flexibility offered by theCEVA-X1641 DSP provides us with the platform to develop our multimode baseband processors addressing both current and future mobile WiMAX applications.”
