codec chipVLSI Solution announced the VS1063 audio codec chip. According to the company, this IC can encode an unforeseen multitude of audio formats, from MP3 and Ogg Vorbis to G.711 u-law, G.711 A-law, G.722 and 16-bit PCM. The proprietary MP3 and Ogg Vorbis encoders have been carefully tuned for highest possible audio fidelity for high-quality audio streaming or recording, the company asserts. VS1063 can play back MP2, MP3, WMA, OGG, LC-AAC, HC-AAC, FLAC, IMA, G.711 u-law, G.711 a-law, G.722 and WAV PCM formats, making it suitable for hi-fi audio playback and streaming applications. It also offers a full-duplex codec mode with optional Acoustic Echo Cancellation. The codec mode makes it possible to create real-time full duplex audio for voice applications like internet phones and two-way audio radio links. Built-in sound effects include a bass enhancer and treble control, a five-band equalizer, a speed shifter and the company’s EarSpeaker room processing. It is also possible to insert PCM sound effects or audio from a stereo analog input on top of playback audio.
