Yamaha Selects CEVA-TeakLite-4 Audio/Voice Processors
CEVA, a licensor of silicon intellectual property and digital signal processing cores, today announced that Yamaha has licensed multiple members of the CEVA-TeakLite-4 DSP family.
The fully synthesizable CEVA-TeakLite-4 DSP design addresses the need to run increasingly complex voice pre-processing algorithms, advanced audio post-processing, and always-on voice activation at extremely lower power. The CEVA-TeakLite-4 DSP architecture, its instructions specific to audio/voice processing, and its power management and reduction technology offer Yamaha a platform to run ultra-low power audio and voice applications.
"Our comprehensive selection process has led us to understand clearly that the CEVA-TeakLite-4 cores have the industry-leading audio/voice DSP architecture, the smallest footprint, and the best power efficiency for mobile product ICs," said Nobukazu Nakamura, manager of strategic marketing for Yamaha's Semiconductor Division, in a statement. "We continue to work together with CEVA for the continual advancement of our audio/voice product roadmap, integrating leading-edge technologies yet achieving better performance and greater power efficiency at the same time."
"We are delighted to announce Yamaha Corporation as the latest company to choose our CEVA-TeakLite-4 DSP architecture for their audio/voice product lines," said Gideon Wertheizer, CEO of CEVA, in a statement. "Yamaha is a recognized leader in high-quality audio and voice processing technology, and our DSP provides them with a fully programmable platform featuring ample processing horsepower to implement even the most sophisticated audio and voice use-cases."
The CEVA-TeakLite-4 is the fourth generation DSP based on CEVA-TeakLite.
Solutions address growing demand for voice-powered user interfaces.
