Media Advisory: CSR attends and speaks at GSA & IET Forum and 130th AES Convention


CAMBRIDGE, UK - CSR (LSE: CSR) can today announce two events in May that it will be attending.

11 May 2011: GSA & IET International Semiconductor Forum; Munich, Germany

On the 11th May, CSR’s CEO Joep van Beurden will be speaking at a panel discussion at the GSA & IET International Semiconductor Forum in Munich.

With the demand for smaller, faster and higher quality performance devices, semiconductor companies are aiming to develop next-generation semiconductor chips to enable new applications that take advantage of high-speed data connections, added processing capabilities and long battery life. Addressing the design and architectural challenges, the topic of the discussion is ‘Innovation in Smart Phone Technology – Needs and Drivers for Future Growth’.

Alongside other industry experts, including Dr Jalal Bagherli CEO of Dialog Semiconductor and Tudor Brown, President of ARM, Joep van Beurden will be analysing solutions available, such as a process and/or components, which can satisfy the quality and performance requirements of new mobile applications. Key to the dialogue is the question of which solutions can enable semiconductor companies to manage costs and generate profitability.

Moderator of the panel is the Head of Branded Products & Terminals Innovation of the Vodafone Group, Ralf Elias. - D1_1430

13 May 2011: 130th AES Convention; London, UK

On the 13th May CSR’s Neil Smyth will be presenting a paper titled ‘A Lossless/Near-Lossless Audio Codec for Low Latency Streaming Applications on Embedded Devices’ at the Speech and Coding Paper Session during the 130th AES Convention in London.

With an increased need for high quality audio streaming in devices such as home audio networking systems, wireless transmission capacities continue to grow. The aim is to utilise this increasing data bandwidth to perform real-time wireless streaming of audio content coded in a lossless or near-lossless format.

The paper will discuss the development of an adaptive audio coding algorithm that balances the design goals of low latency, low complexity, error robustness, and a dynamically-variable bit rate that scales to mathematically-lossless coding under suitable conditions.

Other Paper Sessions at the AES convention include Speech and Hearing, Audio Equipment and Audio Content Management.
