New Xtensa HiFi 2 Audio Engine Announced

Tensilica, Inc., today announced the Xtensa HiFi 2 Audio Engine, an add-on package for Tensilica’s proven Xtensa LX processor, optimized specifically for today’s consumer audio functions. Tensilica also announced a comprehensive set of software encoders and decoders for all popular audio standards, including Dolby Digital AC-3, microQ from QSound Labs, MP3, MPEG-2/4 AAC LC and aacPlusTM, WMA (Windows Media Audio), and AMR (Adaptive Multi-Rate speech). As a low-power turnkey solution, the Xtensa HiFi 2 Audio Engine enables system-on-chip (SOC) designers to quickly design audio-enabled devices such as cellular phones, portable music players, DVD drives, and set-top boxes.

“By the end of 2005, our customers will have shipped tens of millions of units that include our first-generation Xtensa HiFi Audio Engine,” said Chris Rowen, president and CEO of Tensilica. “This new generation product supports additional audio standards and is based on our leading-edge Xtensa LX processor, so it’s faster, lower power, smaller and more flexible.”
