Audio Codec IP - 40 nm: Dolphin Integration passed TSMC IP9000 Level 4 qualification at Low Power process
Grenoble, France November 9, 2012 -- Dolphin Integration has rolled out at 40 nm their offering of mixed signal Audio Codec based on the high-End Xenon architecture. It confirms their position as the leading IP partner with the completion of level 4 on IP 9000 TSMC qualification program.
"We are proud to announce a score of 100% which demonstrates our maturity in Audio sub-systems based on more than 25 years of expertise, shared Vincent RICHARD, Audio Product Marketing Manager.
The Xenon converter family enables to reach 100 dB of SNR on A-weighted playback mode. Such cores are perfectly suitable for HDTV, Set Top Box, Car sound system, audio Dock and Tablets, thanks to their double advantage of high resolution and high density.
Xenon at 40 nm features the Audio Data Adaptive Synchronizer (ADAS) which enables automatic synchronization two optimizations at once:
- a PLL-less solution eliminating the concern about jitter from PLLs on clock path,
- a Jerk-less solution eliminating the concern about period deviation on the audio data path.
For enhancing the sound quality experience, the Xenon codec can embed several logic features among which an Automatic Gain Control (AGC), a Filter Bank or a Soft-Clipping Dynamic Range Compressor (Soft-Clipping DRC).
Dolphin Integration facilitates a safe SoC integration by providing new views and specifications:
- contributing specific requirements for 5.1 and 7.1 applications, e.g. Crosstalk,
- securing high performances with a dedicated regulator ensuring low noise on power supply
