Wireless digital audio SoCs suit subwoofer, headphones
IC design house AlfaPlus Semiconductor Inc. is offering the AWA8800 series, a family of 2.4GHz wireless digital audio SoC. The series, currently featuring the AWA8800 SoC and AWA8810 SoC, provides solutions for wireless digital audio streaming, typically applied in wireless speakers, wireless subwoofers and wireless headphones with microphone input.
Both SoC models support 48kHz/16bit/stereo audio streaming. They feature standard I²S interfaces well as USB. They also support two-way voice communication as well as the two-way control command.
The components do not execute complex compression/decompression, thus featuring low latency at about 12.5ms.
AWA8800 series SoCs come with an evaluation kit and reference design for wireless headphone with microphone input.
