I has applied extensive design expertise in both digital audio and low-power RF, working closely with key customers, to deliver a turnkey wireless audio solution that many major audio customers are already designing into their new systems,” said Laurent Giai-Miniet, general manager of TI’s Low-Power RF business unit. “The CC8520 solution includes best-in-class hardware, software and development kits to streamline the process of eliminating cables in audio designs and to drive high-performance wireless digital audio into more consumer applications, such as headphones, headsets, speakers, subwoofers and home theater systems.”
Key features and benefits
· Complete integrated solution with RF protocol and audio codec setup support, application designs and a free PurePath Configurator PC software tool.
· No microcontroller or software development is required, making it a flexible, low-cost solution with fast time-to-market.
· High quality-of-service for digital wireless audio transmission.
o No unwanted noise (clicks or pops) and high MTBD (mean time between dropout) compared to existing solutions.
o Excellent coexistence with Bluetooth®, WLAN and other 2.4-GHz devices.
o Low latency for better synchronization between audio and video.
o None of the sound distortion typically found in competing proprietary systems using compression techniques.
o Supports 16-bit, 44.1-KHz or 48-KHz audio without any compression.
· Compatible with wide variety of TI audio codecs (TLV320AIC3101), digital-to-analog converters (PCM1754), analog-to-digital converters (TLV320ADC3001) and audio amplifiers (TPA6140A2, TAS5713) using I2S and I2C interface support.
