DSP Concepts

DSP Concepts empowers the automotive audio industry to deliver impactful audio experiences with unprecedented efficiency. Their proven technologies and world-class engineering team are trusted by the industry’s premier Tier 1’s, SoC vendors, traditional OEMs, and EV-makers.

Thanks to the Audio Weaver platform, with its optimized support for Arm Cortex-A and Cortex-M, OEMs and automotive audio suppliers are creating, integrating, tuning, and deploying differentiating audio experiences faster than ever before. With Audio Weaver as a foundational technology, DSP Concepts also offers computer-aided Cabin Tuning tools, Automotive components for Audio Weaver, and a full-range of premium audio design services.


“Automotive audio systems are among the most complex in the world. They have the most speakers, the most hostile environments for voice microphones, and require the most dynamic and complex audio-processing pipelines; and beyond that, automotive audio systems must also be designed to be scalable across vehicle trim-levels and feature-extensible over time. Given these significant challenges, it is pretty clear why the industry is coalescing around Audio Weaver as an independent, standardized platform for audio-processing. Audio Weaver’s powerful development tools, cross-platform runtimes, and open architecture have unlocked a revolutionary new level of efficiency.”
