CEVA has completed qualification testing of its RivieraWaves Bluetooth 5.1 Low Energy IP using the Ellisys Bluetooth Qualifier™ (EBQ) compliance tester.
“With more than a dozen licensees already for our Bluetooth 5.1 low energy and dual mode IPs, we continue to lead the industry for Bluetooth IP,” said Ange Aznar, vice president and general manager of the Wireless IoT Business Unit at CEVA. “Achieving SIG qualification is an important step to ensuring our customers receive quality, compliant Bluetooth IP and this process is simplified and efficient thanks to Ellisys’ Bluetooth Compliance Tester platform.”
“To properly enable the release schedules of early adopters, we must have the EBQ fully prepared to test and qualify devices and IP even before a new core specification is released,” said Mario Pasquali, President and CEO at Ellisys. “CEVA is consistently one of the first developers to utilize the EBQ system when new features are released in these specifications.”
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 Bluetooth 5.1 features are supported, including Direction Finding (AoA/AoD), Randomized Advertising Channel Indexing, Periodic Advertising Sync Transfer, GATT Caching and other enhancements.
