Qualcomm to unveil world’s first Bluetooth audio system-on-chip with ANC technology at CES 2017
Qualcomm Technologies, a subsidiary of Qualcomm today announced world’s first Bluetooth audio system-on-chip (SoC) with integrated active noise cancelling technology. The new feature reduces the complexity and cost of adding active noise cancelling to headphones by eliminating the need for a separate ANC chip, helping manufacturers quickly deliver premium audio experiences in much smaller form factor designs. The headphones feature an extended playtime of approximately 12 hours and noise cancelling performance of up to -23dB.
By integrating ANC with CSR8675, which is ideal for ultra-small form factor designs, Qualcomm is taking the category of small form factor in-ear designs to a whole new level and bringing a higher-quality listening experience to consumers who prefer earbuds. The CSR8675 is a fully integrated Flash platform with embedded 120Mhz 24-bit DSP and also supports Qualcomm aptX and Qualcomm aptX HD audio technologies for consistent, high-quality audio streaming over Bluetooth.
