Tensilica Reaches Audio/Voice DSP Milestone: Most Widely Licensed Audio Architecture for SOC Design

SANTA CLARA, CA -- (Marketwire) -- Sep 11, 2012 -- Tensilica®, Inc. today announced that it has licensed its HiFi Audio/Voice DSPs (digital signal processors) to over 50 corporations worldwide, making it the most widely licensed audio architecture for SOC (system-on-chip) design. The HiFi architecture has been designed into smartphones, tablets, personal computers, notebook computers, digital video and still cameras, Blue-ray Disc players, digital terrestrial and satellite radios, automobiles, and game consoles. It is used by half of the top 20 tier one semiconductor companies and numerous systems companies.

"Our HiFi Audio/Voice architecture has become the de facto standard for audio offload in new chip designs because we offer the most extensive library of over 100 audio/voice codecs and enhancement software," stated Larry Przywara, Tensilica's senior director of Multimedia Marketing. "We also have the smallest, lowest power specs in the industry, allowing us to meet the increasingly complex audio, voice, and speech requirements."

A key advantage of the HiFi Audio/Voice DSPs is the simple processor-based programming model. Because of the efficiency of the optimized instructions, software developers can port audio and voice codecs completely in C while maintaining, or surpassing, the performance of assembly on other DSP and CPU architectures. Tensilica has more than 30 partners in its rapidly growing audio/voice ecosystem and the company's licensees are on track to ship more than one billion HiFi cores per year by 2015.
