Added value of audio converter IP


Some audio IP suppliers content themselves with discounting the IP price while Dolphin strives for minimizing the fabrication costs.
Not only that, but some contenders have let fabless supplier to believe that SoC Integration can content themselves with layout rules to prevent a drop of SNR and THD: but the clock and power supply lines are the real culprit for noise propagation.
There are about 10 quite different application segments for audio CODECs: each has its own set of criteria for performance. Performance of audio CODEC is multi-dimensional: resolution, sound-power, density, BoM, power consumption, EMI... Whatever the mix of performance criteria, the winner is the equipment supplier with the lowest production costs.
