Tensilica’s Dominant Market Share in Audio DSP IP Cores in Evidence at CES 2011 in Las Vegas

Demonstrating Low Power HiFi Audio Running on Android Multimedia Subsystem

Las Vegas, NV - January 5, 2011 - More products than ever before based on Tensilica's dataplane processors (DPUs) will be demonstrated at this year's Consumer Electronics Show (CES), January 6-9 in Las Vegas, NV USA. These Tensilica-enabled products include some of the most advanced, innovative consumer devices, including HDTVs, smartphones, tablet PCs, digital set top boxes, digital/HD radios, Blu-ray Disc players, inkjet and laser printers, and other automotive and home entertainment systems.

Tensilica will showcase its #1 position in audio IP cores, including the popular HiFi Audio DSP running within the Android platform, in the South Hall of the Las Vegas Convention Center, meeting room MP25845. To schedule an appointment, please contact paula@tensilica.com.

"The drive for better audio, voice and video at lower power has driven the demand for Tensilica HiFi and DPUs in an increasing number of consumer electronics devices," stated Jack Guedj, Tensilica's president and CEO. "In particular, in home entertainment, our audio design wins have been outstanding, helped by the fact that we were the first IP provider certified for DTS Master Audio and we offer outstanding support for HD Radio. Moreover, the low power of our signal processing solution has enabled Tensilica to efficiently bring home entertainment quality to smartphones, digital cameras and other portable electronic devices."
