Sound Design Technologies Launches WOLVERINE™ Audio Processing Digital Signal Processing Platform

BURLINGTON, Ontario—(BUSINESS WIRE)—April 1, 2009— Sound Design Technologies (SDT), a leading designer and manufacturer of ultra-low power semiconductor solutions for hearing instruments has launched the WOLVERINE™ series of DSP solutions, consisting of programmable DSP platforms as integrated circuits or packaged hybrids and preconfigured hearing aid solutions. The WOLVERINE™ series will be unveiled this week during AudiologyNOW! in Dallas, Texas.

WOLVERINE™ (SA340x) is a full System-On-Chip (SoC) programmable multi-processor DSP platform maximizing MIPS/μW with a unique reconfigurable architecture, integrated high-resolution dual ADCs, DAC, 20-bit data path with high programmable flexibility and an ultra miniature foot print with best in the industry power consumption making Wolverine an ideal platform for audio and data processing applications such as hearing aid processors, portable audio entertainment devices, noise cancellation headphones, medical monitoring, enterprise headsets, Biometrics etc.

Combining industry-leading, cutting-edge 90-nm process technology with low-leakage transistor technology, the SA340x generation of fully programmable multi-processor DSPs offers designers the flexibility to add more features to existing battery operated products, portability to traditionally wired applications, lower heat dissipation, save energy costs on wired applications or meet any other application requirements for a low-power processor. The SA340x series of advanced ultra low-power technology is available in alternate form factors ranging from CSPs of 3mmX4mm to 5mmX5mm LFBGA assemblies in RoHS compliant assemblies.

Ian Roane, CEO SDT comments: “WOLVERINE is the industry’s first monolithic product and a true system-on-chip with embedded processing cores, analog-to-digital converters, non volatile memory among other features in a truly miniature form factor which will enable hearing aid manufacturers to develop highly differentiated product lines for all segments of the market on a single platform.”

WOLVERINE platform is supported with a complete suite of development tools, including Sound Design GUIDE™ that offers developers a complete solution for firmware development, debugging and testing. Wolverine DSP is available in alternate miniaturized chip scale packages for a wide range of product applications ranging from Hearing Aids to consumer and professional Audio and Data Processing applications.
