Professional Quality Multi-channel Audio Offering Differentiation and Low Cost Integration

Xilinx FPGAs are unrivalled in providing the digital signal processing (DSP) performance required in audio processing, interfacing, compression, embedding and conversion. The inherent parallelism of FPGA architectures means that many channels of audio can be processed together using very efficient resources. The high performance of Xilinx FPGAs means that audio performance and quality is excellent and well in excess of most applications’ needs. 

Xilinx offers architectures as cost-effective and flexible alternatives to ASSPs and DSPs, along with a world-class partner ecosystem providing audio and speech codecs, echo cancellers etc. Xilinx platforms enable engineers to rapidly integrate audio functionality into their products, offering differentiation, channel density and fast time-to-market. Designers can take full advantage of the DSP performance, bandwidth, and features of Xilinx FPGAs to implement system-on-chip designs that eliminate the need for separate components to perform audio processing tasks, thereby reducing costs, particularly for multi-channel audio applications.
