SAN JOSE and SAN DIEGO, Calif. -- ParthusCeva, Inc. (NASDAQ: PCVA, LSE: PCV), the industry's leading licensor of Digital Signal Processor (DSP) cores and solutions, today announced that VIA Telecom, Inc., a leading innovator and developer of CDMA chipsets, has licensed ParthusCeva's TeakLite DSP Core for its new product lines targeting the CDMA/CDMA2000 market. ParthusCeva and VIA Telecom have entered into additional licensing agreements for various applications to run in conjunction with the TeakLite powered baseband; these agreements will be announced at a later date.

"ParthusCeva's TeakLite architecture gives us access to a wide array of technologies that can be built around this leading DSP core," said Ker Zhang, CEO of VIA Telecom, Inc. "Our next generation of CDMA modems will lead the industry in terms of cost, performance and power consumption and will offer best-in-class applications."

VIA Telecom's requirement for low power, low-cost modem solutions for the price sensitive CDMA market drove the licensing of ParthusCeva's TeakLite DSP core over other available DSP IP solutions. ParthusCeva's leading DSP architectures in the cellular market are specifically designed for high volume 2G as well as emerging 3G CDMA2000 standards.

"ParthusCeva is a true one-stop partner for DSP cores and integrated applications IP in the industry, so we are delighted that VIA Telecom has joined the community of semiconductor and handset manufacturer partners using our DSP cores for the cellular market, " said Chet Silvestri, CEO of ParthusCeva.
