January 29, 2014 -- Kronoton announced that its HDSX software is now available for the Cadence Design Systems, Inc. Tensilica HiFi Audio DSP intellectual property (IP) cores. The solution was demonstrated at the 2014 International Consumer Electronics Show (CES), and redefines the spatiality of stereo sound.

HDSX redefines the spatiality of stereo sound. It opens the sound space and lets the listener dive into the dynamic and multidimensional complexity of listening, independent of any playback devices or audio formats. The system can easily be implemented on all stationary or mobile terminal devices.

HSDX expands the sound, independent of the playback device or audio format, in a fully automated manner. HDSX can also be used in a parallel basis in order to enhance the sound of the matrix surround decoders from as many channels as desired.

Gunnar Kron, Managing Partner at Kronoton, said "HDSX is the answer to the great demand for stereo sound field expansion. We are delighted to become a HiFi audio partner, bringing HDSX to the most popular and widely licensed audio DSP core."

"The HiFi Audio/ Voice DSPs provide a great platform for HDSX and can off-load the complete audio function from the host processor," said Larry Przywara, Director of Audio/Voice IP Marketing at Cadence.
