Overview:
Questions for mobile system designers no longer
center around whether systems should integrate audio functionality, but where
should the audio be integrated, what new trends to consider, which features
offer the best power / performance tradeoffs, and who designers can look to in a
make vs buy decision. The answers to these questions are not always
straightforward. In this webinar, you will learn:

  • What performance trends in today’s multimedia devices are affecting audio
    systems
  • Where in the system to integrate audio codecs
  • What challenges are associated with integrating analog audio interfaces in
    more advanced process nodes such as 28-nm
  • Who to consider when looking at “make vs buy” decisions

Estimated Length: 50 minutes + 10minutes QA
