Until recently, our present-day environment would have been considered the stuff of science fiction. Today, we find it hard living without our smartphones with speech recognition, tablets for video conferencing, home security cameras that recognize people standing at our doorstep, and the Cloud for safeguarding our memories and data. The vast variety of services that have become an integral part of our lives are the result of signal processing and AI technology. Israel’s CEVA has played a big part in this evolution.
CEVA was founded in 2002 as a public IP (Intellectual Property) company and is traded on the NASDAQ. The company is managed from Israel, and over the years, has benefited from the support of the Israel Innovation Authority. CEVA allows end devices to understand their environment through the use of cameras, microphones and other sensors, to process information through the use of standard algorithms or AI, and to link these devices to the Cloud via cellular communication (LTE, 5G), or Bluetooth or Wi-Fi. CEVA technology is currently used in billions of microchips in a variety of applications: cellphones, base stations, cameras, drones, IoT devices, smartwatches, tablets and more.
Today, CEVA is at the forefront of technology. It strives to improve the day-to-day lives of people worldwide and to make their lives safer and easier. CEVA works to improve the humanmachine interface, making it more intuitive (for example, object recognition for autonomous vehicles and speech recognition for voice activation), and to improve and increase communication speed and data volume between end devices and access points and the Cloud.
The innovation of CEVA’s products lies in its advanced, ultralow power processing capabilities adapted for mobile devices, and on innovation in computer vision and AI in object and voice recognition.
The company’s primary target audiences are located in the Far East, the US and Europe. In 2016, The Linley Group named XM4, CEVA’s computer vision processor, the most innovative embedded system.
