Today’s phones have evolved a lot, from old dial phones to brick mobile phones and now smartphones. Modern smartphones encourages communication through e-mail and text messaging, but voice is still an important component.
So, in order to enhance the voice quality in smartphones, CEVA (News - Alert), Inc., a licensor of silicon intellectual property (SIP) platform solutions and DSP cores and NXP Software, a company in mobile multimedia software have partnered to offer an enhanced HD voice processing solution for the smartphone market.
This HD voice processing solution is developed by integrating NXP Software's (News - Alert) market-leading LifeVibes VoiceExperience software with the CEVA-TeakLite family of DSPs, including the CEVA-TeakLite-4.
"There is a clear trend towards enhanced voice quality in smartphones today, combining advanced hardware and software techniques, including voice pre-processing and new multi-microphone configurations to reduce background noise and improve voice clarity," said Nicolas Sauvage, director of Marketing and Sales at NXP Software. "The CEVA-TeakLite-4 DSP delivers outstanding performance for these demanding applications, allowing our customers to gain maximum benefit from our VoiceExperience software package, and at lower power consumption."
