Heads up for any audio designers planning on (or thinking about) attending the upcoming 129th Audio Engineering Society (AES) convention in San Francisco (to be held November 4-7). For the first time the show will feature a dedicated Product Design Track, which will offer more than 20 Workshops, Tutorials and Master Classes focused on audio product development.
The events are planned to explore audio design tips and challenges on everything from iPhone strategies to "DSP for Dummies." Here's a sampling of just a few that caught my eye (click on the links for details):
David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
