London, UK: Imagination Technologies Group plc (LSE: IMG), the leading provider of human computer interface intellectual property (IP), is showing its META multithreaded DSP processor technology at CeBIT 2002. META, as used in Frontier Silicon’s Chorus FS1010 multithreaded DSP processor, is being demonstrated decoding digital audio streams, including DAB (Digital Audio Broadcast).

Frontier Silicon’s Chorus FS1010 processor is already being used by UK consumer electronics brand Goodmans, which will incorporate it into a variety of new entertainment products to launch in the second half of 2002, and by VideoLogic, which will use the processor for a range of DAB, home cinema and digital audio products.

The Frontier Silicon Chorus FS1010 is a cost-effective, low power DSP processor chip, which integrates all the necessary functionality and interfaces for a range of consumer systems on the same chip. An application suite from Imagination Technologies’ Ensigma Technologies division enables META processors to provide a wide range of functionality including DAB, portable (MP3, AAC) and surround sound, (DTS, Dolby Digital) audio.

Frontier Silicon’s Chorus FS1010 is the first processor to utilise the revolutionary META multi-threaded DSP core and DAB technologies developed by Imagination Technologies’ Metagence and Ensigma Technologies divisions. The META processor architecture provides multiple real-time programming contexts (threads) that can operate independently and concurrently. The critical advantage of the META architecture is that it makes it possible to run several real-time tasks, as well as general purpose functions, on a single processor, rather than resorting to inefficient multi-DSP plus micro-controller solutions.
