Performance-IP, CEVA Collaborate to Accelerate DSP System Performance

High-Performance L2 Cache from Performance-IP to be Integrated with CEVA’s DSPs

BOSTON, Dec. 12, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Performance-IP, the intellectual property (IP) leader in memory interfaces optimization, today announced a collaboration with CEVA to provide high-performance caching capabilities for CEVA’s digital signal processors (DSPs).

Through the collaboration, CEVA can incorporate Performance-IP’s high-performance L2+ Cache with patented Memory Tracker Technology® with any of its DSPs to further improve system performance. Systems that benefit from the combination of L2+ Cache and CEVA DSPs include smartphones running applications such as Enhanced Voice Services (EVS), and multicore homogenous and heterogeneous systems using multiple CEVA cores.

“The incorporation of the L2+ Cache with our DSPs is an excellent method to accelerate the performance of DSP-based applications,” notes Erez Bar-Niv, chief technology officer at CEVA. “We chose to adopt the Performance-IP L2+ Cache technology due to the superior performance improvements we achieved, along with the excellent support provided us through the selection process.”

“Our Memory Tracker Technology adds an additional layer of performance optimization to CEVA’s DSPs with hit rates that largely exceed those of systems based on traditional L2 caches of comparable size,” says Gregory Recupero, Performance-IP’s chief technology officer and founder. “It is a pleasure to cooperate with a leading IP provider like CEVA and we look forward to expanding our relationship.”

CEVA DSPs enhanced with L2+ Cache are available now and sold through CEVA.
