USound’s ultra-compact audio module enhances the performance of hearables such as TWS and OTC hearing aids and enables new degrees of design freedom

Graz, Austria, August 4, 2022 — USound, the leading provider of micro-electro-mechanical systems (MEMS) loudspeakers for hearables and wearables, announces the release of an audio module designed to enhance the performance of TWS and OTC hearing aids.

The module design uses physical frequency crossover technology, with finished parts of acoustic design including sound chamber and pipes. This module is a ready-to-use solution for hearing aids and true wireless earbuds. Manufacturers can easily integrate the module in earphones by changing the venting volume to achieve a different sound experience.

The audio module is available in two versions: a two-way audio system and a full-range ultra-compact audio module. The two-way audio system includes a USound’s MEMS speaker from the Conamara series as a tweeter and an electrodynamic speaker as a woofer. This combination allows for increased playtime, better sound quality, and performance.

“Hearables manufacturers can now create more ergonomic and comfortable hearables, with extended battery life and audio quality. With this module, the form factor of hearing aids and TWS  is considerably reduced, and the performance surpasses market standards,” adds Andrea Rusconi – CTO at USound.

USound has been collaborating with the Chinese company Luxshare-ICT on the development of this audio module as well as AT&S. USound already co-developed TWS prototypes early this quarter with the Chinese company Innovation, which successfully integrates USound’s MEMS speakers from the Ganymede series and can be used as a blueprint to design true wireless stereo (TWS) earbuds.

Machine-Learning Optimized Chip Design -- Cadence Design Systems

Sponsored by Cadence Design Systems

New applications and technology are driving demand for even more compute and functionality in the devices we use every day. System on chip (SoC) designs are quickly migrating to new process nodes, and rapidly growing in size and complexity. In this episode of Chalk Talk, Amelia Dalton chats with Rod Metcalfe about how machine learning combined with distributed computing offers new capabilities to automate and scale RTL to GDS chip implementation flows, enabling design teams to support more, and increasingly complex, SoC projects.
