Inomize Becomes Newest Tensilica Design Center in Israel

“We’re excited to work closely with Tensilica, who is creating a major presence in Israel for many signal processing designs,” stated Udi Shaked, CEO, Inomize. “Tensilica’s ConnX communications DSPs and HiFi audio/voice DSPs are ideal for many companies in Israel doing digital signal processing. Instead of using inflexible, legacy, off-the-shelf DSPs, Tensilica’s customers can customize cores for their exact specifications, letting them run at the lowest power and area while achieving higher performance.  That level of customization is essential for the highly innovative customer base that we serve here in Israel.”  See press release.
