Dialog Semiconductor claims it will be the first to demonstrate Stereo High Fidelity (HiFi) quality audio streaming over Bluetooth low energy (BLE) at Bluetooth World. The technology, which enables true wireless stereo audio streaming over BLE, will be showcased in a proof of concept implementation to Bluetooth SIG Associate members at the event.
As demand for wireless audio has increased, True Wireless Stereo (TWS) systems, featuring no wires between earbuds, have emerged as the pinnacle of the technology for consumer and professional use alike. These systems have proven challenging to develop: existing implementations make use of a combination of classic Bluetooth and Bluetooth low energy technology for sound distribution between left and right channels, often resulting in imbalanced battery usage and limited battery life for the products.
To solve this, Dialog has developed an audio over BLE proof of concept running on its SmartBond SoCs. Allegedly, the implementation allows for best-in-class audio synchronization between left and right channels, together with the low power consumption afforded by Bluetooth low energy technology.
