Tensilica introduced the Bluetooth sub-band codec (SBC) decoder and encoder for their HiFi 2 Audio DSP, which can easily be integrated into system-on-chip (SOC) designs. The Bluetooth sub-band codec enables designers of cellular phones, portable music players, and other devices to easily design in Bluetooth capabilities, along with over 50 other audio standards already available, that run on the HiFi 2 Audio DSP. The HiFi 2 Audio DSP provides chip designers with one hardware platform that can be used for multiple audio standards. The SBC decoder and encoder are available now from Tensilica.
