SAN JOSE, Calif. -- CEVA, Inc. (NASDAQ:CEVA) the leading licensor of digital signal processor (DSP) cores, multimedia and storage platforms to the semiconductor industry, and K-Micro, a leader in advanced yet affordable ASIC technology, today announced that K-Micro has licensed the CEVA-VoP(TM) Voice-Over-Packet platform for integration into its ASIC offerings, including its TOPAZ SoC platform. This production-proven Voice-over-IP (VoIP) solution will enable K-Micro customers to incorporate advanced voice functionality into their newest Fiber-to-the Premise (FTTP) Gigabit Passive Optical Network (GPON) gateways and IP phones.

To meet the stringent equipment requirements of multiple carriers, K-Micro's customers will benefit from the highly integrated nature of the CEVA-VoP platform, including the range of standard hardware interfaces and software application program interfaces (APIs) available with it.

Based on the popular CEVA-TeakLite-II(TM) core and Xpert-TeakLite-II(TM) DSP subsystem, the CEVA-VoP platform is a full-featured semiconductor intellectual property (IP) package containing all the necessary hardware, software and development tools to enable product developers to easily incorporate VoIP functionality into their system-on-chip devices required for today's Customer Premise Equipment (CPE) gateways and IP phones. The solution's performance and functionality benefits enable previously unachievable feature-rich products that leverage the widespread availability of broadband networks and the cost-effectiveness and other advantages of VoIP technology.

"To comply with our customers' diverse equipment design requirements, it is of utmost importance to us to utilize a cost-efficient and flexible platform to integrate into their products that will speed time-to-market and allow them to quickly adapt as the market evolves," said Joel Silverman, vice president of technology solutions at K-Micro.
