Technology will be demonstrated during the 2014 Mobile World Congress
Raanana, Israel and San Jose, Calif. – February 20, 2013 – Cadence Design Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ: CDNS), a leader in global electronic design innovation, and Rubidium Ltd., a developer of low-resource embedded voice user interface technology, today announced that Rubidium’s speech processing solutions have been ported to the Cadence® Tensilica® HiFi Audio/Voice DSP family. The suite of always-listening voice trigger, text-to-speech, speech recognition, and biometric speaker verification software from Rubidium is targeted at embedded applications in mobile, wireless, wearable, automotive, and home appliances.
The technology will be demonstrated at the Cadence booth in Hall 6, Stand 6L36 at Mobile World Congress on February 24-27, 2014.
“We ported our software to the Tensilica HiFi Audio/Voice DSP based on customer demand for an outstanding low power audio platform,” said Shlomo Peller, CEO and Founder of Rubidium.“ This solution provides the opportunity for customers to embed voice user interfaces and security into their latest mobile devices, while at the same time staying within their tight low power budgets.”
“By adding Rubidium to our list of over 55 HiFi partners, we’re offering our customers additional proven software options for these voice technologies,” said Larry Przywara, director of audio/voice IP marketing for Cadence. “Their software port takes advantage of the ultra low-power features of our HiFi Mini DSP, which effectively offloads all audio and voice processing from the host processor, allowing the host to sleep while audio functions are enabled.”
