SPL Vitalizer In-Car Audio Software Now Available on Cadence Tensilica HiFi Audio/Voice DSP Family

Cadence Design Systems Inc. and SPL electronics GmbH (SPL), a professional audio company, have revealed that SPL's Vitalizer software has been ported to the Cadence Tensilica HiFi audio/voice digital signal processing (DSP) family.

Aimed at automobile manufacturers and tier 1 automotive infotainment suppliers that want to create the most efficient, high-quality audio experience, SPL's Vitalizer software claims to deliver fuller and richer sound, without the need to install more expensive speakers, by modifying the output of the audio for the particular automobile cabin while taking human hearing into consideration.

"Using chips that employ the Cadence Tensilica HiFi audio/voice DSP core and our Vitalizer technology, auto manufacturers and tier 1 automotive infotainment suppliers can modify the user experience by shaping and fine tuning the sound to match the acoustics of the exact model car," stated Thomas Irmen, project manager of SPL. "This partnership puts Cadence customers in reach of the best pro audio sound tools based on decades of pro audio know how."

"We are able to provide customers with a significantly enriched audio experience at the lowest possible total system cost through our partnership with SPL," said Larry Przywara, group director of audio/voice intellectual property (IP) marketing at Cadence. "SPL's innovative Sound Design technology is an excellent example of software that can take maximum advantage of our HiFi DSP family."

The Vitalizer software, now available to the market, promises to adjust the equalisation of the output to produce the most optimal listening experience for the specific environment.
