SAN JOSE, Calif., 10 Dec 2013 -- Cadence Design Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ: CDNS), a leader in global electronic design innovation, today announced that Digital Voice Systems, Inc. (DVSI) AMBE® Advanced Multi-Band Excitation wideband decoder software has been ported to the Cadence® Tensilica® HiFi Audio/Voice DSP family to enhance high-quality voice compression at low bit rates.
“The Cadence Tensilica HiFi Audio/Voice DSP family is an ideal, efficient platform for our AMBE voice compression products,” said Robert Maher, director of sales & marketing, DVSI. “It is the most widely used DSP IP family for audio/voice processing, and our software will enable companies to deliver excellent speech quality in real-world conditions at low data rates.”
