HiWave announces stereo Bluetooth wireless speaker design; delivers 2 x13W burst audio and over 30 hours playback
CAMBRIDGE, England --(Business Wire)--
the provider of electronic and transducer solutions for audio
and haptic touch, has announced a stereo Bluetooth wireless speker
reference design that provides 2 x13W burst power and runs for 30 hours
(around 45 albums) from its small, 2200mAh Li-ion battery. Speakers
based on the design enable users to stream audio from Bluetooth enabled
phones, tablets and laptops.
At typical listening levels the system, called Dyad BA3, consumes an
average of less than 300mW, yet also accurately reproduces the audio
The system combines HiWave's proprietary wide range loudspeaker
technology, BMR, with HiAS2002 ultra efficient amplifier chip and CSR's (News - Alert)
BC05-MM Bluetooth module. OEMs adopting the design would be able to
deliver wireless, Hi-Fi quality loudspeaker products to the market in
less than 3 months.
James Lewis, CEO of HiWave said, "Bluetooth is an ideal technology for
wireless speakers, especially as we shift to storing music in the cloud.
It has both lossless and ultra low power consumption variants, giving
both quality and long battery life, and has been designed into almost
every phone and laptop over the decade."
The Dyad BA3 is the third design in HiWave's series of reference
platforms based on its BMR speaker drivers and ultra efficient wireless
amplifier ICs. These speed time to market for HiWave's customers, and
its first reference platform, Dyad USB, was adopted and taken to market
just months after its launch.
Schematics and design notes for the DyadBA3 reference design are
available under NDA via HiWave or one of its local sales channels.
