Intersil Corp. has announced the demonstration and sampling of D2Audio's D2-41X58-LR. This family of devices using D2Audio's fourth generation Digital Audio Engine (DAE-4) exceeds previous superior sound quality standards, while its low cost makes it ideal for high volume applications such as TVs, personal media players, cell phone docking stations, media PCs, gaming PCs, and multimedia platforms.

Intersil's D2Audio devices feature an even higher level of audio quality in the new DAE-4, deriving its superior audio performance from proven D2Audio technology. DAE-4 improvements include an even greater Signal-to-Noise Ratio (SNR) of >105 dB and Total Harmonic Distortion plus Noise (THD + N) performance of <0.1%.

The new low-cost 5-channel DAE-4 also features Advanced Audio Processing Support and D2Audio SoundSuite Enhancements, providing users with a more immersive audio experience. This includes the sensation of an expanded audio sound field, the clarity of focused "centre-channel" dialogue and spoken content, and the extended low-frequencies expected in explosions and other special effects.

Customers' audio products using the DAE-4's integrated Loudspeaker Compensation can also achieve higher sound quality from low cost speakers despite the constraints levied by today's elegant cosmetic designs and the dictated use of inexpensive speakers.

The superior flexibility of the DAE-4 simplifies new product development by integrating the I2S, S/PDIF Digital Inputs, high-performance Class-D amplifier and DAC Outputs. The DAE-4 supports multiple amplifier output configurations, including Stereo, 2.1-channel, Bi-Amp, 4-channel and Amplifier/DAC combinations.

Samples of the D2-41X58-LR are available by contacting your Intersil sales representative. Projected price upon release is Rs.87.56 ($1.75) at 10,000 piece quantities.
