SAN JOSE, Calif., June 14, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- DSP Group®, Inc. (Nasdaq:DSPG), a leading global provider of wireless chipset solutions for converged communications, announced today the release of its cutting-edge DBM11 noise-elimination System-On-a-Chip (SOC) for headsets and mobile devices. Powered by HDClearTM technology, DBM11 introduces unparalleled voice quality and call intelligibility by eliminating ambient noise and delivers a noise-free conversation experience that boosts call clarity and enhances productivity.
DBM11 integrates HDClear, a suite of innovative speech-processing and noise-cancellation algorithms. A small-footprint, low-power SOC that can be integrated easily into small Bluetooth headsets and other mobile devices, DBM11 has already been designed-in by several device makers worldwide, and products incorporating its unique capabilities are expected to launch in the first quarter of 2013.
DBM11 delivers remarkable performance in highly noisy environments. In cases of a signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) of 10dB, DBM11 delivers approximately 25dB better performance when compared to the most advanced headsets and mobile devices available today.
DBM11 achieves even more extraordinary results with speech recognition. With current devices, speech recognition accuracy drops from over 95% in quiet environments to less than 30% in noisy environments; leveraging HDClear technology, DBM11 ensures that accuracy in noisy environments remains well above 75%.
"DBM11 brings unparalleled noise elimination to the mobile market with superior voice enhancement and call intelligibility capabilities unmatched elsewhere in the marketplace. This state-of-the-art technology brings together our excellence in voice processing and innovative technologies acquired from BoneTone Communications," said Ofer Elyakim, Chief Executive Officer of DSP Group. "DSP Group once again is setting the performance standard for speech-processing technologies. We are very excited about our current design activity, and gratified by the overwhelmingly positive feedback received from our customers."
