CEVA and ASPEED Collaborate on Voice Solutions
ASPEED Technology has licensed and deployed CEVA's BX1 audio/voice digital signal processor in its second-generation Cupola360 SoC, AST1230 for smart cameras and video conferencing systems. The companies are also also collaborating around CEVA's ClearVox multi-microphone noise reduction and acoustic echo cancellation audio front end (AFE) software. This software package is fully optimized for the CEVA-BX1 DSP, significantly enhancing the intelligibility of any voice conferencing system and allowing voice assistants and hands-free control capabilities to be added.
"Our second-generation Cupola360 SoC is our first product to incorporate real-time multi-image stitching video and powerful audio processing capabilities, making it perfect for video conferencing applications. Through the comprehensive cooperation between CEVA and ASPEED, our customers can enjoy the most superior video and audio functionality, and we are glad to have CEVA as our strong and trusted partner," said Chris Lin, chairman and president of ASPEED, in a statement.
"Video conferencing plays an increasingly critical role in most organizations and work-from-home scenarios today, and their underlying equipment is key to making the experience effortless and productive. We're pleased to partner with ASPEED, one of the leaders in this space, to ensure that the voice experience of these systems is seamless and powerful, no matter the user environment. Our value-add ClearVox voice software illustrates the unique value we can bring to our customers with our hardware + software approach to IP, and we look forward to collaborating with ASPEED and their customers to introduce a new generation of smart conferencing systems to the market," said Moshe Sheier, vice president of marketing at CEVA, in a statement.
