Cadence Adds Rubidium Voice Solutions to Its HiFi Audio/Voice Processing Suite
Cadence Design Systems, a provider of global electronic design innovation, and Rubidium, a developer of low-resource embedded voice user interface technology, today announced that Rubidium's speech processing software solutions have been ported to the Cadence Tensilica HiFi Audio/Voice digital signal processing (DSP) intellectual property (IP) family.
The suite of always-listening voice trigger, text-to-speech, speech recognition, and biometric speaker verification software from Rubidium is targeted at embedded applications in mobile, wireless, wearable, automotive, and home appliance applications.
"We ported our software to the Tensilica HiFi Audio/Voice DSP core based on customer demand for an outstanding low-power audio platform," said Shlomo Peller, CEO and founder of Rubidium, in a statement. "This solution provides the opportunity for customers to embed voice user interfaces and security into their latest mobile devices, while at the same time staying within their tight low-power budgets."
"By adding Rubidium to our list of over 55 HiFi partners, we're offering our customers additional proven software options for speech processing," said Larry Przywara, director of audio/voice IP marketing at Cadence, in a statement. "Rubidium's software port takes advantage of the ultra-low-power features of our HiFi Mini DSP core, which effectively offloads all audio and voice processing from the host processor, allowing the host to sleep while low-power audio functions are enabled."
