Shanghai, China. CEVA announced support for Channel Sounding to its RivieraWaves Bluetooth IP portfolio for precise secured positioning in automotive, industrial, and broader IoT. By supporting Channel Sounding CEVA has surpassed conventional Bluetooth distance and position measurement practices, explicitly received signal strength indicators (RSSI) with angle of signal arrival/departure (AoA/AoD).

CEVA's integration allows superior decimeter-level accuracy in dense, multi-path everyday environments. Advanced security tools are featured to outlast distance-spoofing and 'relay attacks'. Tal Shalev, Vice President and General Manager of the Wireless IoT BU at CEVA, stated: "Channel Sounding for Bluetooth addresses an urgent need expressed by many of our automotive and industrial customers for a robust, low power, low-cost positioning solution. Along with UWB-based positioning that it can be combined with for even more demanding positioning applications, we offer a comprehensive and unrivalled portfolio of wireless technologies to meet the diverse needs of our customers."
