"Embedded software development for audio and voice applications tends to be complex, time consuming and costly," says Dr. Paul Beckmann, Founder and CTO of DSP Concepts, Inc. "Our Audio Weaver Design Tool significantly simplifies this process for product designers and we're pleased to offer these capabilities now to CEVA's broad customer base integrating DSP-based audio and voice functionality into their SoC designs."
Audio Weaver is a graphical configuration tool designed to enable simple and rapid development of audio/voice DSP software, allowing designers to benefit from the performance of CEVA's DSPs while eliminating the need for native coding and kernel optimization. It is used to easily design, debug, and tune audio processing flows in real time, says the company, cutting product development time by up to 90%.
TalkTo is a high-performance far-field voice front-end that leverages Audio Weaver for ease of integration and tuning. When used in conjunction with CEVA's audio and voice processors, says the company, product makers can fully exploit the processing performance of the DSP engine and create unique audio and voice features to differentiate their products.
The CEVA-X2 and CEVA-BX family of digital signal processors are offered as ideal for any power-constrained audio/voice use case and are widely adopted to date in SoCs for smartphones, smart speakers, voice assistants, action cameras, and more.
Moshe Sheier, Vice President of Marketing at CEVA says, "Our collaboration with DSP Concepts brings the benefits of their Audio Weaver tool to our customers, providing an impressive design environment to build out even the most complex audio and voice use cases, in minimal time. We're already receiving excellent feedback from our joint customers and look forward to expanding our partnership as audio and voice adoption in the everyday products that surround us continue to grow."
