Microchip Technology today released the next generation of its Bluetooth 5.0-qualified dual-mode audio IC and fully certified module.
Measuring just 5.5 x 5.5 mm, the low-power IS2083BM IC is ideal for small form factor designs and gives developers more space to use larger batteries in end products. Both the IS2083BM IC and BM83 module enable customers to reduce Bill of Materials (BOM) with highly integrated features, including:
- Embedded Mode: Eliminates the need for an external host MCU to support application functionality
- Integrated Power Amplifier: The integrated power amplifier includes up to +9.5 dBm output power, removing the need for an external power amplifier
- Large Flash memory: With an integrated 2 Mbyte Flash memory, this feature provides the ability to store updated files during over-the-air (OTA) updates and software settings without external storage
- Support for Sony’s LDAC™ audio codec technology*: This technology extends high-resolution audio beyond audiophiles and into mass market Bluetooth wireless products
