08:10 EDTNXPINXP Semiconductors announces partnership with Sonova
NXP Semiconductors announced that as a result of a partnership with Sonova – the leading manufacturer of innovative hearing care solutions – they have collaboratively developed Venture, a landmark next-generation hearing instrument platform, which offers users exceptional performance. Using the advanced platform, Sonova has already introduced a first family of hearing aids, Phonak Audéo V, which launched in October 2014. Venture features an ultra-low power audio processing IC, incorporating a microcontroller and dual core DSP subsystem, maximizing computational power at minimal current consumption. The device's microphone inputs have a wide dynamic range, key for the device's sound quality. Wireless audio and data streaming are managed by a separate IC, built around a Near Field Magnetic Induction radio. This technology provides a tightly-contained Body Area Network, optimized for low power consumption and low latency. Besides its application in hearing instruments, the NFMI technology provides unique features for robust wireless earbuds applications and sensor networks in and around the body. Both ICs run from a battery voltage down to 1V, and will consume around 1mW for a typical hearing aid application.
