MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif. Feb. 15, 2011 —
The eS310 chip is the first of the company’s next-generation voice processors based on reverse-engineering the human hearing system. Audience’s earSmart chips distinguish and interpret sounds as people do naturally, to isolate the voice signal and suppress surrounding noise – from both ends of the call – to enable clear conversations and improve performance of speech-based services to work nearly anywhere. The eS310 chip takes this intelligent voice processing further to deliver quality communications in 4G mobile phones and applications, improving call quality, VoIP, video calling, and more. A typical mobile call delivers only a fraction of the frequency range of the human voice. Wideband calls extend the frequency range of sound traveling over the mobile network, for higher quality voice transmission. The eS310 chip also provides a wideband HD voice experience for mobile phone users on narrowband (2G or 3G) networks.
The eS310 processor incorporates Audience’s new high performance, low-power Audio DSP core that delivers twice the functionality with the same power consumption as provided in earlier products. With this additional computational capacity over earlier generations, the eS310 voice processor is improving the voice experience across 4G wideband and 2G/3G networks and applications.
Key features of the earSmart™ eS310 processor include:
- Wideband and Narrowband Noise Suppression
- Wideband HD Listening Experience
- Wideband Handheld Speakerphone Non-Stationary Noise Suppression
- Personalization and Accessibility
- Unique Sound Optimization
- Enhanced Integration Support
- Small Footprint
Handsets featuring the new earSmart eS310 voice processor are expected to launch in the second quarter of 2011.
