Low-Power, Low-Overhead, High-Fidelity Digital Sound for SOCs Webcast

Tensilica, Inc., will present a live webcast, “Low-Power, Low-Overhead, High Fidelity Digital Sound for SOCs,” discussing how most consumer products must support multiple codecs and offer a broad range of audio-enhancement features. All of these factors have resulted in a high demand for a flexible, high-performance, low-power audio engine that adds digital-sound capabilities to an SOC with the least amount of design effort and a small on-chip footprint. This online seminar presents a proven way to add low-power, low-overhead, high-fidelity audio to SOC designs.

The presenter for the August 15th broadcast will be Steve Leibson, Technology Evangelist, Tensilica. Leibson, the author of several books on integrated circuit design, spent 15 years as an award-winning technology journalist, serving as Editor in Chief of EDN, the Microprocessor Report, and Embedded Developers Journal.

Tensilica, Inc., is the recognized leader in configurable processor technology and has leveraged that technology to become the leading supplier of licensable controllers and DSP cores for mobile audio and video applications. Tensilica offers the broadest line of controller, CPU, network, and specialty DSP processors on the market today – including full software toolchain and modeling support – in both an off-the-shelf format via the Diamond Standard Series cores and with full designer configurability with the Xtensa processor family. The modern design behind all of Tensilica’s processor cores provides semiconductor companies and system OEMs with the lowest power, smallest area solutions for high-volume products including mobile phones and other consumer electronics, networking and telecommunications equipment, and computer peripherals.

The live webcast will take place on Wednesday, August 15th, at 11:00 a.m. P.T. Afterwards, it will be available on demand from the EDN archives.
