The RDA5876A integrates industry-leading Bluetooth and FM radio tuners into one chip optimized for consumer and mobile applications. Manufacturers can easily and quickly integrate the RDA5876A into their designs for rapid time to market and low component cost.

Sharp is also developing additional products using RDA's Bluetooth solutions.

"Sharp is well known as a worldwide leader in quality sound systems, and we are pleased to expand the use of RDA's non-handset Bluetooth solutions into an increasing number of markets, including the United States. The integration of RDA's high performance Bluetooth connectivity solution on Sharp's home entertainment products greatly increases the consumer's choices for playback, system set up and enjoyment of their audio files," said Shuran Wei, CEO of RDA Microelectronics.
