AM3D and CEVA Partner to Provide Innovative Sound Enhancement Technology for Portable Devices

CEVA, Inc., the leading licensor of DSP and IP platforms for cellular, multimedia and connectivity, and AM3D, a leading provider of software solutions for audio enhancement and 3D audio for portable devices, announced today that the companies have partnered to offer AM3D's  ZIRENE® SOUND audio enhancement technology for the  CEVA-TeakLite-4audio/voice family of DSPs.

AM3D will demonstrate ZIRENE® SOUND running on a CEVA-TeakLite-4 silicon at the CEVA Technology Symposium Asia this week. More information is available at

ZIRENE® SOUND enhances audio in HD quality on smartphones, tablets, TVs, portable media players, headphones and other devices in which audio is an essential part of the user experience. The physical specification of such devices means that the size, configuration and power of speakers is far from the optimal combination envisaged by the creators of media content. ZIRENE® SOUND compensates for these inherent limitations by delivering speaker playback optimization and spatial audio effects. It ensures high sound quality with 32bit precision, which matches perfectly with the native 32bit processing of the CEVA-TeakLite-4 DSP family. Read more about the features provided for the CEVA TeakLite 4 DSP  here.

"Music and multimedia content is increasingly consumed on small format, mobile devices such as smartphones and tablets, often via headphones or wireless speakers. ZIRENE® SOUND enables the audio quality of these devices to be optimized on a tightly constrained power budget and the excellent low-power operation of the CEVA-TeakLite-4 DSP consequently makes it an extremely good fit," says Jacob N. Andersen, Senior Vice President, AM3D A/S.

"We are very pleased to welcome AM3D into the CEVAnet partner program," says Moshe Sheier, Director of Strategic Marketing at CEVA. "ZIRENE® SOUND combined with our DSPs, offer a compelling solution that enables audio performance far superior to the physical sonic capabilities of most mobile and portable devices."

The CEVA-TeakLite-4 offers a scalable and extensible native 32-bit DSP family, allowing customers to choose the optimal core to address their specific audio/voice/sensing application needs, while keeping power consumption and die area to a minimum. For more information, visit
