austriamicrosystems' Active Noise Cancelling solution drives trend for better communication and greater peace of mind

Jabra SUPREME headset uses austriamicrosystems' ANC for clear, crisp audio in noisy surroundings

(PresseBox) (Unterpremstätten, ) austriamicrosystems (SIX: AMS), a leading global designer and manufacturer of high-performance analog ICs, today announced that the Jabra SUPREME Bluetooth headset features austriamicrosystems recently introduced Active Noise Cancelling (ANC) IC. These ANC ICs from austriamicrosystems improve hearing in noisy environments and feature the lowest power available, resulting in at least 20 % longer battery life than other ANC solutions. Audio performance is also improved over competing solutions with a 10 dB positive SNR -- no matter the environment -- improving intelligibility in Bluetooth headsets.

"The sound experience is always the main parameter when users of Bluetooth headsets evaluate their products or prioritize product features", stated Anders Bo Rasmussen, Director of Product Management for Jabra. "Noise cancelling has been the main topic within the Bluetooth industry for years, but all efforts were focused on the transmitted audio. With Jabra SUPREME, Jabra offers an industry first unique solution with a "receive path" Active Noise Cancelling feature. This technology makes received audio more crisp and clear and provides better speech intelligibility. That is a clear benefit for the user of a Bluetooth headset: you can hear and understand what's being said to you, even in noisy surroundings. Our thanks go to austriamicrosystems for a great team effort with Jabra to offer this unique solution for the market."

austriamicrosystems' ANC solutions address receive path Active Noise Cancelling with the objective to improve sound quality in and around portable consumer devices by reducing background ambient noise. The portfolio covers feed-forward, feedback and hybrid topologies in both single-ended stereo and mono BTL (bridge-tied load) applications.
