HiFi 2 Audio DSP Now Supports Dolby DAB+

Tensilica added the aacPlus by Dolby for Digital Audio Broadcasting (DAB+) decoder to its audio codec library for its Xtensa HiFi 2 Audio DSP, one of the most popular commercial audio cores for system-on-chip (SOC) designs.

DAB+ is the successor to DAB which is currently deployed in many European countries, Canada, China and South Korea. The DAB+ standard is based on HE-AAC v2, which provides audio with equivalent or better subjective quality at lower bit rates than MPEG Audio Layer II used in DAB. The DAB+ standard is now being adopted by digital radio stations. It is already being broadcast in Italy, Malta and Singapore and deployments are planned for later this year and 2009 in Australia, Germany, Switzerland, the Czech Republic, and other countries around the globe.
