Taipei -- March 7, 2006
– Socle, the leading provider of SoC design services and platform solutions, just finished the development of CPU (ARM926EJ) embedded Audio Voice Function using MP3/AAC audio playing format. Combining with Socle MPEG4 SoC platform, it can provide the best SoC platform design for portable player
Socle ARM Audio solution adopts ARM926EJ embedded CPU and built-in DSP function. Compared with the other SoC platform needing dual CPUs structure, its CPU performs superiorly. So it can meet the requirements of portable electronics by lower power consumption, smaller chip area, and more cost-effective. And Socle ARM Audio solution can support not only the state-of-the-art MP3/WMA/OGG/DRM10 format, but also the AAC (Advance Audio Codec) voice compression format that can play high quality DVD-Audio. Socle platform design supports the most popular SD/MMC/IDE interface and provides I2S interface & comprehensive, flexible software/hardware platform environment, including all silicon-proven IPs from Socle, which help customers to develop competitive SoC custom-made products easily and quickly.
“Socle ARM Audio solution can support MP3, WMA, and high quality ACC playing format. It’s suitable for the hottest portable player SoC design related to MP3 player and PMP, Apple iPod for example, if combined with various Socle ARM-based SoC platform services – such as MPEG4 multimedia SoC platform,” said Mr. David Lyou, Socle President. “Socle is planning to launch ARM7EJ Audio solution with NAND Flash storage interface recently for mega storage trend in the future. It meets the diverse SoC design requests of consumer electronics – no matter low end or high end – from customers and helps them to expand markets.”
