GuruFocus Financial Strength Rank measures how strong a company’s financial situation is. It is based on these factors

1. The debt burden that the company has as measured by its Interest coverage (current year).
2. Debt to revenue ratio. The lower, the better
3. Altman Z-score.

A company ranks high with financial strength is likely to withstand any business slowdowns and recessions.

GuruFocus Profitability Rank ranks how profitable a company is and how likely the company’s business will stay that way. It is based on these factors:

1. Operating Margin
2. Trend of the Operating Margin (5-year average). The company with an uptrend profit margin has a higher rank.
••3. Consistency of the profitability
4. Piotroski F-Score
5. Predictability Rank•

The maximum rank is 10. A rank of 7 or higher means a higher profitability and may stay that way. A rank of 3 or lower indicates that the company has had trouble to make a profit.

Profitability Rank is not directly related to the Financial Strength Rank. But if a company is consistently profitable, its financial strength will be stronger.

Industry: Semiconductors » Semiconductors
Compare:INTC, TSM, BRCM, ARMH, ADI » details
Traded in other countries:PVJA.Germany
CEVA, Inc., a Delaware corporation was incorporated on November 22, 1999. The Company is a licensor of silicon intellectual property (SIP) DSP cores and DSP-based platforms for the mobile, portable, consumer and automotive markets. Its IP portfolio includes technology offerings for wireless communications (2G/3G/LTE/LTE-A/802.11ac), image enhancement and computer vision (super resolution, high dynamic range, video stabilizer, gesture recognition and computational photography), advanced audio and voice processing, Bluetooth, Serial Attached SCSI (SAS) and Serial ATA (SATA). Its technology is licensed to semiconductor and OEM companies. These companies incorporate its IP into application-specific integrated circuits ('ASICs') and application-specific standard products ('ASSPs') that they manufacture, market and sell to consumer electronics companies. Its IP is mainly deployed in high volume markets, including wireless handsets, mobile computing (tablets and notebooks), machine-to-machine modules, home entertainment (smart TVs, DVDs, set-top boxes and game consoles), telecommunication (small cells, broadband modems and VoIP), and storage (enterprise and servers). The Company's state-of-the-art technology has shipped in more than 4 billion chips in diverse end markets. In 2012 alone, its licensees shipped more than 1 billion CEVA-powered products. The Company offer a family of programmable DSP cores and a portfolio of application-specific platforms, including wireless baseband (terminal and infrastructure), multimedia (HD audio, HD video, imaging and gesture), voice (VoIP), Bluetooth and serial storage technology (SATA and SAS). Its customers include: Broadcom, Icom, Intel, Intersil, Marvell, Mediatek, Mindspeed, MStar, NEC, NXP, PMC-Sierra, Renesas, Samsung, Sharp, Solomon Systech, Sony, Spreadtrum, ST Ericsson, Sunplus, Toshiba, VIA Telecom and Xincomm. The Company's marketing efforts include contacts with industry analysts, presenting at key industry trade shows and conferences, and posting information on its website and live technology-oriented webinars. It faces direct competition in the DSP core space mainly from Verisilicon, which licenses DSP cores in addition to its semiconductor business.
