Conexant Launches New Family of Solutions for Growing Embedded Audio Applications
New Audio SoCs Shipping in Pre-production Quantities to Customers Now
NEWPORT BEACH, Calif., - Conexant Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ: CNXT), a leading supplier of innovative semiconductor solutions for imaging, audio, embeddedmodem, and video applications, today introduced a new family of audio system-on-chip (SoC) solutions for embedded audio and voice applications. The CX2070X SoCs are targeted at growing audio opportunities in multimedia IP phones, personal navigation devices, portable media players, and mobile Internet devices. Additional applications include MP3 player docking stations, PC speaker systems, audio headsets, and unified communications systems that support services such as voice-over-IP telephony, speakerphone, and audio conferencing functionality.
The highly integrated SoCs can also be used to enable audio capabilities in intercom and door phone applications. The new audio solutions are shipping in pre-production quantities to customers now.
"We have applied our extensive expertise in voice- and audio-enhancing algorithms to deliver a next-generation speakers-on-a-chip product family that allows us to expand our reach into growing, adjacent embedded audio and voice segments," said Rene Hartner, vice president of marketing for Conexant. "These innovative solutions feature a powerful suite of Conexantdeveloped technical innovations that dramatically improve audio and voice quality, and the user experience. In addition, an easy-to-use software configuration tool allows developers to customize audio systems and optimize listening experiences."
The highly integrated CX2070X SoCs include an integrated audio/voice digital signal processor (DSP), multi-bit codec, digital and analog input/out interfaces, and a power efficient 2.5-watt per channel Class-D amplifier to drive stereo speakers or optional post-width modulation (PWM) and differential line-out for external speaker systems amplifiers. Key features include Conexant-proprietary technical innovations that significantly improve audio and voice quality. These include:
The CX2070X SPoCs are available in a variety of configurations. The new solutions can also be used with the company's CX92735 imaging SoC, enabling manufacturers to add audio capabilities to "connected" frames and interactive display devices.
Additional features include an easy-to-use, preset-configuration tool and software that allow product developers to evaluate or develop audio subsystems without a PC or microprocessor control unit.
Conexant's audio solutions include high-definition (HD) audio integrated circuits, HD audio codecs, and speakers-on-a-chip solutions for personal computers, PC peripheral sound systems, audio subsystems, speakers, notebook docking stations, voice-over-IP speakerphones, intercom, door phone, and audio-enabled surveillance applications.
Packaging and Pricing
The CX2070X product family is packaged in a 76-pin quad flat no-lead (QFN) package. Prices range from $2.25 to $3.75 each in quantities of 10,000 depending on the feature-set.
Conexant's comprehensive portfolio of innovative semiconductor solutions includes products for imaging, audio, embedded-modem, and video applications. Conexant is a fabless semiconductor company headquartered in Newport Beach, Calif. For more information, visit www.conexant.com
