The trend towards internet-connected consumer
devices is driving an increase in the audio requirements and complexity of
today’s SoCs. These designs need to support elements such as multi-channel,
high-definition audio formats as well as plug seamlessly into the host
application software. Designers are turning to dedicated audio subsystems to
off-load the audio processing from the host processor, thus reducing design
complexity and improving the performance and efficiency of the SoC.

This webinar will focus on:

  • The growing complexity of audio requirements for advanced SoC designs
  • How a pre-verified, integrated audio IP subsystem solution, consisting of
    hardware, software and prototypes reduces integration effort, lowers risk and
    accelerates time-to-market
  • The feature requirements for implementing audio functionality into a SoC
  • How configuration of a complete audio IP subsystem can be done in hours

Length: 50 minutes + 10 minutes of Q&A

Who should attend: SoC design engineers, SW engineers,
system architects, project managers
