LONDON Processor licensor ARM Holdings plc has licensed voice and audio software from Spirit DSP as a means to evaluate its next generation processors, Spirit DSP announced Tuesday (Dec. 2).
Spirit DSP (Moscow, Russia) said it has provided a number of customers with software for voice-over-IP applications that has been optimized for ARM processors.
"To evaluate our architecture decisions, we needed well-respected codec implementations that have been optimized for the ARM v5TE, ARMv6 and ARMv7A architectures," said Rob Coombs, director of mobile solutions for ARM in a statement issued by Spirit DSP. "Spirit audio and voice software is among the most optimized and power-efficient solution for ARM processors, so we chose Spirit's codec implementations as the reference for high-quality processing performance."
"ARM is at the very center of mobile multimedia computing technology. Many Spirit customers including leading smartphone OEMs HTC, Compal, Quanta, Arima, E-TEN, etc. collectively shipping more than 60 percent of smartphones worldwide already benefit from SPIRIT software running on ARM processors," said Slava Borilin, vice president of products at Spirit DSP. "Spirit will ensure that Spirit's audio and voice engines will continue to make ARM processor-based consumer devices the best choice for end-users."
Spirit DSP did not comment on whether the announcement with ARM accompanied any change to relations with Tensilica Inc. (see below). Spirit said it would offer its software for licensing to coincide with the release of Cortex family processors.
