CEVA announces launch of RivieraWaves Bluetooth 5.3 IP

A leading licensor of wireless connectivity and smart sensing technologies, CEVA has announced the general release of its RivieraWaves Bluetooth 5.3 IP.

The RivieraWaves Bluetooth 5.3 IP is now available as a complete hardware/software solution for new designs and as a software-only upgrade for compatible existing designs and supports a broad range of features that enhance security, robustness and low power operation.

Bluetooth 5.3 comes with a number of new features including Enhanced Periodic Advertising and LE Connection Subrating, all designed to improve protocol efficiency in terms of power and latency. Link robustness is also enhanced with the LE Channel Classification signaling, as is wireless security with improvements in the HCI Encryption Key Size Control.

The enhancements in the standard by the Bluetooth SIG coupled with the ultra-low power architecture of the RivieraWaves Bluetooth IP platform are intended to help engineers inwhat is a very competitive consumer market.

Bluetooth device shipments are expected to approach 5 billion units annually by 2022 and surpass 6 billion units annually by 2025, according to the latest forecasts from ABI Research.

Ange Aznar, Vice President and General Manager of the Wireless IoT Business Unit at CEVA, commented, "We congratulate the Bluetooth SIG on the release of the Bluetooth 5.3 specification. Having powered more than 520 million Bluetooth devices in 2020 alone, our RivieraWaves Bluetooth IP is an integral part of the Bluetooth ecosystem. We look forward to working with our Bluetooth 5.3 customers for the introduction of new products leveraging the exciting features of this latest standard."

CEVA's RivieraWaves Bluetooth IP platforms provide comprehensive solutions for both Bluetooth low energy and Bluetooth dual mode connectivity.

Each platform consists of a hardware baseband controller, plus a feature-rich and comprehensive software protocol stack. A flexible radio interface allows the platforms to be deployed with either RivieraWaves RF or various partners' RF IP, enabling optimal selection of foundry and process node.

All the latest features of Bluetooth are supported, including Isochronous Channels for LE Audio, Direction Finding (AoA/AoD), Randomized Advertising Channel Indexing, Periodic Advertising Sync Transfer, GATT Caching and other enhancements
