Cadence adds Dolby and DTS SW for Tensilica HiFi Audio DSPs

Cadence announced that it was the first company to offer an IP core solution supporting Dolby Digital Plus with DS1 and DTS Neural Surround.

The Dolby DS1 for Dolby Digital Plus is for applications in mobile devices such as handsets and tablets as well as any infotainment system with small speakers, like ultra-slim flat-panel TVs. Dolby DS1 for Digital Plus is optimized to provide mobile users with home theater-inspired sound quality by enabling a distortion-free audio/voice boost and also by compensating for unintelligible dialogue, extreme volume variation, and deficiencies inherent in the small speakers and low-power amplifiers on most mobile devices. See press release.

DTS Neural Surround brings a home theater-like experience to automobiles and A/V receivers, significantly enhancing the sound quality of upmixing from compressed media types like MP3. Many recent sports and music broadcasts, including Rolling Stones concerts and the 2013 Super Bowl, were broadcast in DTS Neural Surround to ensure that fans received the highest level quality audio.
