CEVA’s Bluetooth Low Energy 5.2 platform receives Bluetooth SIG qualification

CEVA has announced that its RivieraWaves Bluetooth Low Energy (LE) 5.2 platform has achieved Bluetooth SIG Qualification.

It is the first IP company to receive Bluetooth LE 5.2 qualification, and enables CEVA's licensees to reduce their product development risk and speed up the time-to-market and end-product qualification process.

Commenting Ange Aznar, Vice President and General Manager of the Wireless IoT Business Unit at CEVA, said: "We are proud to be the first IP provider in the world to achieve qualification from the Bluetooth SIG for our RivieraWaves Bluetooth LE 5.2 platform. Version 5.2 of the standard introduces Isochronous Channels that address the growing demand for higher performance and lower power wireless earbuds and other audio peripherals including headsets, smart speakers and sound bars.”

Isochronous Channels (ISO) over Bluetooth LE is the foundation for LE Audio and is supported in Bluetooth LE 5.2. Several low latency and synchronized channels can be setup to stream audio over Bluetooth LE to several sinks, such as a pair of wireless earbuds.

The audio experience is being helped by significantly reduced power consumption compared to Classic Audio, and improved audio quality due to a new LC3 CODEC, complemented by the possibility to stream audio to an unlimited number of devices - Audio Sharing allows people in a public area to grab the audio stream from nearby TVs or monitors.

CEVA’s RivieraWaves Bluetooth IP platforms provide comprehensive solutions for both Bluetooth LE and Bluetooth dual mode connectivity. Each platform consists of a hardware baseband controller, plus a feature-rich 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.
