Oxford Digital Limited And SMSC Collaborate On JukeBlox® DSP

Stocks in this article: SMSC

Oxford Digital Limited and SMSC, a leading semiconductor company enabling content rich connectivity systems, today announced a collaboration to provide SMSC’s JukeBlox ® DSP which incorporates Oxford Digital’s FixFx and MajE-Fx sonic tuning solutions.

FixFx incorporates a proven configuration of audio DSP effects that allows limitations in a device’s acoustic performance to be overcome. It features sound processing and audio enhancement effects derived from Oxford Digital’s pro-audio heritage and a single GUI that facilitates rapid device tuning to provide minimum time to market.

In addition to the FixFx features , MajE-Fx includes an automated tuning system that radically speeds up the process of equalising the spectral response of consumer devices to remove cabinet and driver resonances and thereby improve the sonic performance of the device. Engineering resources using conventional parametric EQs for response equalisation can be reduced to minutes.

SMSC's JukeBlox technology connects tablets, smartphones, PCs, Macs and other consumer electronics products to a new world of audio entertainment. With the industry's only system-on-a-chip (SoC) and Software Design Kit (SDK) for networked audio, SMSC is making the connected home a reality and enabling consumers to access their local or cloud-based music library from any device and from any room in the home.

Offering integrated Wi-Fi® support, the JukeBlox software platform enables music streaming to virtually all home audio equipment including home theater systems, A/V receivers, radios, wireless speakers and portable music player docking stations. JukeBlox technology also integrates a broad range of functionality including Internet radio with premium services such as Pandora ®, Last.fm®, Rhapsody ®, Napster ® and Sirius ®, and wired or wireless streaming of digital music via multiple standards. It provides USB functionality, a broad suite of codecs, protocols and DRM standards, and traditional home audio functionality such as AM/FM radio and clock/alarm functionality.

Gene Sheridan, Senior Vice President & General Manager of SMSC’s Wireless Products Group said, “With our new JB DSP capability, our JukeBlox platform provides critical BOM cost savings by allowing our customers to eliminate an external DSP. And with the integration of the Oxford acoustic tuning algorithms running on our JB DSP processor, our customers have a fast and easy to way to implement their desired audio enhancements and sound processing.”

John Richards, CEO of Oxford Digital, said, “We are excited to be working with SMSC as the leader in networked audio with their JukeBlox platform. The combination of Oxford acoustic tuning algorithms combined with SMSC’s JB DSP will assist customers in bringing to market great sounding products in less time and less cost.”
