Spreadtrum Licenses CEVA-TeakLite-4 Audio/Voice DSP
CEVA (NASDAQ: CEVA) today announced that Spreadtrum Communications (NASDAQ: SPRD) has licensed the CEVA-TeakLite-4 DSP to support advanced audio and voice capabilities in its next-generation smartphone platform System-on-Chip (SoCs). This enables Spreadtrum to enhance their audio and voice processing capabilities, leveraging the latest generation of the world's most widely deployed DSP architecture.
The fully programmable CEVA-TeakLite-4 DSP was specifically designed to address the increasingly complex processing and stringent low-power requirements of advanced voice pre-processing and audio post-processing algorithms, including the latest always-on voice activation typically found in high-end devices. The CEVA-TeakLite-4's orthogonal architecture, audio- and voice-specific instruction set, and advanced power management provide Spreadtrum with an optimal platform with which to implement ultra-low power audio and voice capabilities in addition to control plane processing.
"Battery life and advanced voice processing capabilities were two of the primary DSP selection criteria for our next-generation smartphone platforms, and the CEVA-TeakLite-4 DSP delivers outstandingly in both respects," said Dr. Leo Li, chairman and
