Home Entertainment

Designed Into Products that Make Life More Fun

Today's home entertainment products are increasingly challenged to provide high-quality audio and high-definition video processing, as well as advanced communications functions. The higher the resolution, the more processing power required. Plus interactions with the Internet are bringing a multitude of new formats, creating challenges for video encoding/decoding, video post processing, and audio codec requirements.

For next-generation home entertainment products, you need efficient, high-performance functional blocks that are programmable to keep up with the latest standards. Cadence® Tensilica® processors are at work in smart home entertainment systems and throughout the house.

But we have so much more than Tensilica processors. Our standards-based IP and Verification IP (VIP) play huge roles in the designs of home entertainment products.
