Press release date: February 25, 2014

Demonstration available at the 2014 Mobile World Congress

BARCELONA, Spain, -- Cadence Design Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ: CDNS), a leader in global electronic design innovation, and Galileo Satellite Navigation, Ltd. (GSN), a developer of multi-system Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) products including software receiver technology, today announced that Galileo's software-based GNSS receiver is now available on Tensilica® ConnX DSP IP cores and is scheduled to be demonstrated at the Cadence booth in hall 6, stand 6L36, at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona on February 24-27, 2014.

The GSN GNSS receiver running on a Cadence ConnX BBE16 DSP consumes very little power - as low as 10mW of power on a 40nm process - and has the ability to work in lower rates, or "snap-shots" for ultra-low-power mobile scenarios. The solution delivers high sensitivity tracking, offering a seamless GNSS experience in challenging environments.

"GSN's software-based approach for satellite receivers perfectly complements Cadence® DSPs, taking maximum advantage of the flexibility of our DSP architecture," said Jack Guedj, corporate vice president of Research and Development at Cadence. "The availability of GSN's software on our ConnX BBE16 further reinforces the strength of our low-power programmable modem strategy for advanced communications."

"The Tensilica ConnX BBE16 DSP delivers outstanding performance for implementing our GNSS receivers and with a low-power footprint. This provides customers with the ability to easily upgrade their designs to include future satellite systems including Beidou, GLONASS, and Galileo via software," said Eli Ariel, CEO at GSN. "With no additional silicon costs and at a low cost of deployment, this software-based solution results in a very compelling approach to implement satellite navigation functionality in many products where it otherwise might be impractical."
