Market’s First Complete Platform For Highly Differentiated Low Power Smart Lightning Headsets

BEAVERTON, OR -- Avnera Corporation, supplier of Analog System on Chips (ASoC) for smart devices, announces availability of the LightX platform that is the basis for Apple's second generation MFi Lightning Audio Module (LAM2). The Avnera LightX platform sets new standards in the industry with the lowest power consumption and the smallest size for smart Lightning headsets. This is made possible by Avnera's AV3425, the first single chip Analog SoC for smart Lightning headsets.

No-compromises Lightning solution

Avnera's single chip ASoC allows the highest level of integration for a smart Lightning headset thereby enabling headset form factors consistent in size with typical analog headsets. The LightX platform also introduces for the first time Avnera's patent pending low power analog audio circuit technology that significantly reduces the power consumption of the Lightning headsets versus any existing solution.

Complete system solution for smart Lightning headsets

The LightX platform provides a complete system solution covering not just the smart headset but also the iOS App. On the headset side, a powerful SDK provides innovative smart features many of which will be first to the consumer headset market. For example: a new method of "Adaptive Noise Cancelation" allows significantly more cancelation than fixed noise cancelation solutions used by consumer headsets today by automatically calibrating to each users specific fit and to the environment and "Smart Muting" which automatically mutes the user's voice mics when the user is not speaking thereby minimizing the amount of noise disruption, especially during conference calls. The platform includes a complete array of development tools to allow brands to develop and implement their own IP, especially features requiring signal processing for audio, voice, speech and sensor capabilities.
