MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., Feb. 14, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- CEVA, Inc. (NASDAQ: CEVA), the leading licensor of silicon intellectual property (SIP) platform solutions and DSP cores, and Sensory, Inc., a pioneer in speech technologies for consumer products, today announced the availability of power-optimized solutions aimed at bringing advanced voice activation capabilities to a new wave of mobile and sensor-enabled devices.
The solutions integrate Sensory's market-leading TrulyHandsfree™ Voice Control Version 3.0 optimized for the CEVA-TeakLite-4 V2 DSP architecture, to address a variety of consumer applications that demand ultra-low power consumption for "always on, always listening" voice control functions. For example, the solution consumes less than 20 microwatts for voice triggering in 28nm, making it ideal for always-listening wearable devices such as smart watches and glasses, as well as integration into sensor hub solutions in smartphones. The companies will showcase the latest TrulyHandsfree features optimized for the enhanced CEVA TeakLite-4 V2 architecture at the 2014 Mobile World Congress in the CEVA booth (Hall 6, Stand A50).
Bill Teasley, Sensory's VP of Engineering said, "We are extremely pleased with CEVA's support for power optimization of TrulyHandsfree Version 3.0 on their CEVA-TeakLite-4 V2 family of cores. The latest enhancements they have made to the CEVA-TeakLite family further lowers the power consumption of 'always on, always listening' capabilities, providing our mutual customers with a truly world-class solution for their voice-enabled applications."
"We continue to build the industry's most advanced set of solutions and ecosystem for mobile applications, including the fast growing domain of wearables and sensor-enabled Internet of Things. The power optimization improvements we have made with the release of our CEVA-TeakLite-4 V2 DSP architecture combined with the optimization of Sensory's latest features will enable our customers to gain even greater performance advantages for their voice-centric applications with an ultra-low power budget," said Moshe Sheier, director of product marketing for audio and voice at CEVA.
Version 3.0 of Sensory's TrulyHandsfree technology allows speaker identification for personalization of the user experience via powerful and accurate voice biometric analysis of both pre-configured and user-defined passwords. Combined with power efficient voice triggering, the user needs only to speak to wake the device and retrieve their preferences. The availability of these latest features on the enhanced CEVA-TeakLite-4 V2 architecture further solidifies CEVA's position as the industry's most power efficient DSP architecture for advanced audio/voice applications.

Everyone has to understand what's happening, in real time, and have the means to do whatever is necessary to keep applications up and running optimally. DevOps is a high-stakes world, but done well, it delivers the agility and performance to significantly impact business competitiveness.
