ZIRENE® SOUND is now available on Qualcomm’s Snapdragon chipset family

AM3D is delighted to reveal that the ZIRENE® SOUND audio enhancement features are now available on Qualcomm's Snapdragon chipset.

A fully integrated audio enhancement solution is now available for the Android OS through the porting to Qualcomm's Snapdragon 8974 and later versions. The audio post-processing is implemented in the Hexagon DSP and supports a low-power audio mode for power saving.

With the porting, manufacturers using the Android OS are now able to utilize the ZIRENE® SOUND solution in order to improve the quality of the sound output on their devices significantly. Thus making it possible to design smaller and slimmer devices without compromising the sound quality.

"Android is by far the most used OS in the world and Qualcomm is the leader in the chipset market for portable devices. By porting our solution to the Snapdragon chipset family we are entering a huge new market which ultimately will result in more consumers being able to enjoy high quality sound on their smartphones, phablets and tablets - and that is our mission," says Jacob N. Andersen, Senior Vice President in AM3D A/S.

The solution includes a full suite of ZIRENE® SOUND features such as 3D SURROUND™, Voice Enhancement, Transducer Equalisation and Bass Enhancement. Learn more about AM3D's ZIRENE® SOUND solution for the Qualcomm Snapdragon chipset family here
