Bluetooth Audio SoC Integrates Sony Codec

Bluetooth audio designs are often limited by the bit depth and frequency rate of existing codecs. Addressing this issue, Microchip Technology’s Bluetooth 5-compliant IS2064GM-0L3 System-on-Chip (SoC) integrates Sony's LDAC audio codec technology. The device allows manufacturers to develop audio devices with an advanced codec, extending high-resolution audio beyond audiophiles and into mass market wireless products.


Headphone manufacturer, Audeze, has implemented the SoC into their high-end Mobius gaming headphone. Mobius headphones employ the IS2064GM-0L3 SoC for the wireless connection supporting LDAC and other audio codec interfaces. Sony's LDAC is considered the highest-quality audio codec available. It transmits up to 990 kbps data throughput, which is three times higher than the standard Bluetooth Sub-band Codec (SBC), and maintains frequency and bit depth of up to 96 kHz/24-bit. The high compression and reproduction efficiency enables high-resolution audio listening experiences for Bluetooth audio devices.
