Microsemi’s Timberwolf™ Audio Processing Solution for the Connected Home (Part 2 of 4)

In the first article of this series, we wrote about Microsemi being a leading provider of energy-efficient and cost-effective semiconductor system solutions for the broadband home, delivering the right connectivity solutions for voice, data, and power. Read “Enabling the Connected Home: Audio Processors, Voice Line Circuits, PoE, and More (Part 1 of 4).

In this article, we’re going to introduce you to Microsemi’s Timberwolf audio processing solution for the connected home.

Designed for world-class high definition (HD) voice applications, Microsemi’s new ZL380 series of audio processors features Microsemi AcuEdge™ technology. This innovative technology is a set of highly-complex and integrated algorithms that enables extracttion of more information from the audio environment. Microsemi AcuEdge consists of license-free, royalty-free intelligent audio IP algorithms. With Microsemi’s highly-integrated ZL380 series of audio processors, AcuEdge accelerates time-to-market with a validated reference design and easy-to-use development tools including the Microsemi Audio Interface Box (AIB) kit, which uses the MiTuner™ GUI

The Microsemi AcuEdge technology enables full duplex operation between the connected devices to deliver seamless high definition (HD) voice communication. In complex noise environments such as gaming rooms and building lobbies, Microsemi’s AcuEdge technology cancels echo, maintains a constant ambient noise (comfort noise), and continuously converges during double-talk situations.

Microsemi’s automatic speech recognition (ASR) assist technology significantly improves performance for embedded and cloud-based ASR solutions. This enables extended range detection in noisy environments and provides exceptional bargein performance.

There are two more articles in this series. Come back next week to read about voice line circuits, PoE, reverse power feed (RPF), wireless LAN RF ICs, and line drivers.
