Ceva unveils next-gen low-power UWB IP for FiRa 2.0 to enhance wireless ranging in IoT

Wireless communications, sensing and edge AI service provider Ceva, Inc. has announced the general release of its RivieraWaves ultra-wideband (UWB) IP for FiRa 2.0.

The FiRa 2.0 is the latest technical specification released by the FiRa industry consortium promoting standardization and compliance efforts for the widespread adoption of UWB-driven applications.

Ceva’s latest generation UWB IP includes an interference cancellation scheme to offer what the company claims to be outstanding performance for micro-location in high-density wireless environments such as the smart home and smart factory where other wireless standards such as Bluetooth, Wi-Fi and ZigBee are pervasive.

“Ceva’s latest generation UWB IP addresses the increasing adoption of UWB in consumer and industrial multi-mode wireless IoT devices,” says Tal Shalev, vice president and general manager, wireless IoT business unit at Ceva.

“With time-to-market in mind, our customers value our comprehensive Bluetooth, Wi-Fi and UWB IP portfolio, and the system experience behind that. With a complete MAC and PHY FiRa 2.0 grade UWB IP, tested against the Rohde & Schwarz CMP200 Validated Test Tool, our customers can confidently develop next-generation UWB-enabled devices to meet the most demanding use cases in a wide range of applications from the smart home and factory to automotive, retail and healthcare.”

The FiRa 2.0 specification expands UWB into the consumer and industrial markets with particular attention on three use cases. Ceva RivieraWaves UWB for FiRa 2.0 is a low power ultra-wideband (UWB) MAC and PHY digital platform IP based on 802.15.4z HRP and the FiRa Consortium specifications.

“Our FiRa 2.0 Validated R&SCMP200 radio communication tester is invaluable for ensuring compliance and interoperability,” comments Christoph Pointner, senior vice president of mobile radio testers at Rohde & Schwarz.

“We are delighted to support and work closely with a leading UWB IP provider like Ceva on the FiRa 2.0 PCTT testing of their RivieraWaves® UWB IP.”
