Tensilica Adds Support for Dynamic Resolution Adaptation Audio Standard to HiFi Audio DSP Library
April 23, 2012 -- Tensilica, Inc. today announced that it has added support for the Dynamic Resolution Adaptation (DRA) standard to its library of over 100 audio encoders, decoders and sound-enhancement packages for its HiFi Audio DSP (digital signal processor) family. Now all products that include the HiFi Audio DSPs can be used to support the standard approved by the People's Republic of China as the National Audio Standard (GB/T 22726-2008) for multi-channel audio decoding. Tensilica has delivered the HiFi DRA decoder to a number of Tier 1 system OEMs and semiconductor companies.
"DRA is an approved optional audio codec standard for Blu-ray Disc audio, adopted as an audio codec for the Chinese Multimedia Mobile Broadcast (CMMB) standard," stated Larry Przywara, Senior Director of Multimedia Marketing, Tensilica. "It is an important audio standard for terrestrial digital TV, IPTV, internet streaming, and Blu-ray Disc applications in China.""
Tensilica's HiFi Audio DSPs support over 100 audio and voice codecs with very efficient processing at low power. The HiFi Audio DSPs are part of Tensilica's growing line of dataplane processors (DPUs) that efficiently do the challenging, compute-intensive tasks in system-on-chip (SOC) designs.
