Audio Weaver™ is a product-development system that's simply the fastest, most cost-effective way to add audio-features to embedded products. The system is built around the AWE Core™, a data-driven audio-processing engine that’s easily integrated into your embedded software; and Audio Weaver Designer™, the companion configuration and tuning tool.
The AWE Core™ is delivered as a software-library or Linux app that’s hand-optimized for all of today's most popular embedded processors. It features hundreds of audio building-blocks to connect and tune, a simple integration model, and open APIs for 3rd-party algorithms and tuning-tools.
Audio Weaver Designer™
Audio Weaver Designer™ is an intuitive, PC-based configuration tool that's used to quickly assemble, tune, and ultimately productize your audio experience. It features a drag and drop interface, real-time tuning and debugging tools, cycle-accurate profiling, and a custom-module API.
Audio Weaver Advantages
Rapid Product Development
The Audio Weaver™ system allows product designers and engineers to integrate, invent, and fine-tune audio-features at unprecedented speeds. The ability to change signal-processing layouts in real-time (without recompiling or reflashing hardware) yields incredibly fast iteration times.
Audio Weaver™ designs (“Layouts”) are fully portable across all processors supported by the AWE Core™. Audio Weaver’s real-time MIPs and Memory profiling empowers system architects make fast, reliable decisions about processor selection.
With more than 400 processing modules now available, and more always on the way, Audio Weaver easily meet the needs of any application that requires audio processing. Its modules can be combined and adjusted to suit the needs of many markets, including automotive, IoT, consumer and pro audio, security, and more.
Audio Weaver reduces development costs in numerous ways. Its modular, real-time programming environment allows product development teams to quickly create new audio processing chains, with no coding skills required. Engineers can quickly tune product performance and add features, and are free to choose whatever processor meets their needs without needing to redevelop algorithms.
Audio Weaver Processing Configurations
The AWE Core™ can be configured for powerful microphone processing, including beamforming, echo-cancellation, noise reduction, wake-word recognition and spectral filtering—everything needed to deliver the cleanest, most noise-free signal to voice recognition systems. Audio Weaver quickly enables the best possible performance from any number of microphones and any acoustic package.
Technology has placed new demands on automotive sound systems—and Audio Weaver can help meet them all, including microphone processing for voice command and telecommunications; audio system crossovers, filters and tuning; engine sound and warning tone synthesis; and much more.
Audio Weaver’s incomparable flexibility makes it ideal for IoT products, which come in widely varying form factors and perform many different functions. From microphone and speaker processing to voice UI to alert/warning tones, Audio Weaver can optimize the performance of products from refrigerators to smartwatches—while making it easy to add new features later on.
Consumer and Pro Audio Systems
With more than 400 processing modules now available, Audio Weaver can perform practically any processing function needed in any audio system, including crossovers, frequency response correction, loudness compensation, time and phase correction, compression/limiting, driver protection, noise gating, tone control, room correction, spatial enhancement and surround sound, voice enhancement and harmonic synthesis for bass enhancement.
