Cloud native EDA tools & pre-optimized hardware platforms
Available separately or as part of the DesignWare SoundWave Audio Subsystem, which provides designers with a complete, pre-verified audio subsystem integrating hardware, software and prototyping for incorporation into system-on-chip (SoC) designs, the ARC audio solution includes the following hardware and software components:
Synopsys’ DesignWare ARC audio processors are the only ones in the market whose design was directly driven by both processor architects and audio engineering professionals. The DesignWare ARC audio solution is easily integrated into SoCs and fulfills today’s demanding processing requirements, and delivers an undeniably high-quality listening experience.
The DesignWare ARC audio processors range from the single-core AS211SFX processor to the high-performance AS221BD dual-core processor. Software that is written for a single core runs out-of-the-box on the dual-core processor. A multi-core media streaming framework that simplifies the partitioning and distribution of a complex use case with multiple audio codecs over such a dual-core system is also available.
As consumers demand a better experience from their multimedia-capable devices that capture, share and playback audio, designers have to build SoCs that enable high-quality audio and allow extended operation. The DesignWare ARC audio solution is capable of delivering studio quality audio using post-processing technology and at the same time supporting long hours of playback time using active power management.
