Ultra-low power DSP core from CEVA provides unmatched sound quality and
extends battery life for state-of-the-art cochlear implant system
SAN JOSE, Calif., Sept. 18 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- CEVA, Inc. (Nasdaq: CEVA; LSE: CVA), a leading licensor of innovative intellectual property (IP) platform solutions and DSP cores for wireless, consumer and multimedia applications, today announced that Advanced Bionics has licensed and deployed the CEVA-TeakLite(TM) DSP core in its Harmony HiResolution Bionic Ear System.
The CEVA-TeakLite core, used in the external (behind the ear) sound processor of the Harmony system, is a key component in providing unmatched hearing capability for severe-to-profoundly deaf individuals that would otherwise have little or no perception of sound. The device benefits from the CEVA core's support for CD-quality audio, wide input dynamic range and powerful dual-loop automatic gain control. This technology is used in the Harmony system, with its breakthrough HiRes Fidelity 120(TM) processing feature, to help cochlear implant recipients appreciate music, use the telephone, and hear in noisy environments, without having to make adjustments to their processor. The ultra-low power requirements of CEVA's most widely-deployed DSP core enables extended battery life so Harmony system recipients can use their processor all day on a single battery charge.
"We are very pleased to be working with Advanced Bionics and
contributing to the sophisticated technology required for its
state-of-the-art cochlear implant system," said Gideon Wertheize
