Tensilica introduced the HiFi 3 audio/voice digital signal processor intellectual property core for system-on-chip design. HiFi 3 DSP has an 80% increase in performance for the FFT (fast Fourier transform), FIR (finite impulse response), and IIR (infinite impulse response) math functions that are essential in audio pre- and post-processing. In addition, there’s a performance improvement of over 150% for most voice codecs compared to HiFi EP. The HiFi 3 has been delivered to lead customers. General availability will be in March.
