Semtech and Sonova Create New Hearing Aid Solutions for Better IoT Connectivity
超小型低功耗无线射频 IC 利用了快速 LoRa® 调制，此调制支持 2.4 GHz 频段内的多种协议
CAMARILLO, Calif., Mar. 21, 2019 — Semtech Corporation（纳斯达克股票代码：SMTC）是行业领先的供应商，提供高性能模拟和混合信号半导体产品以及先进算法。公司与创新听力保健解决方案的全球领军者 Sonova 宣布共同开发先进的无线电系统。这种超小型集成电路 (IC) 是新一代助听器的主要器件，支持 2.4 GHz 频段的多种无线电协议，可以超低功耗有效运行。
“This chip allows Sonova to move in a new direction with our hearing aids,” said Marc Secall, Director Research & Development Wireless at Sonova. “The breakthrough radio technology and power management are the game changers for hearing aids. It allows them to support a number of applications that have previously not been possible in a hearing aid, all at low power consumption and low supply voltage. Possible applications span from connectivity to any Bluetooth® enabled audio device (e.g. a smartphone or television) to full duplex audio streaming between hearing aids and connectivity to wireless microphones.”
“Semtech continues to innovate and create flexible, reliable solutions for challenging applications associated with the best radio frequency connectivity at the lowest power and 0.8V supply voltage,” said Jean-Paul Bardyn, Vice President of Research and Development of Semtech’s Wireless and Sensing Products Group. “Sonova has long been a leader for hearing devices. By implementing Semtech’s technology and enabling access to the Cloud, we believe that these devices will enrich the IoT-connected solutions which Semtech is serving with LoRa Technology.”
