PARIS STMicroelectronics NV said it has integrated echo cancellation and noise reduction technologies from Alango Technologies Ltd into its advanced Bluetooth chips for car infotainment applications such as hands-free kits.
By integrating Alango’s Voice Communication Package (VCP) into its automotive chips, ST said its customers will benefit from the combined 'one-stop-solution' and unified customer support.
VCP, Alango (Tirat Carmel, Israel) claimed, is a universal software package of digital signal processing technologies for voice applications enabling high quality, full duplex, noise free communication from various environments. In other words, the Alango VCP includes acoustic echo cancellation, single- and dual-microphone noise reduction, automatic gain control and other sound-improving technologies.
ST said the Alango VCP technologies are available for immediate integration into its automotive infotainment portfolio, including the STA2500D Bluetooth IC and the company’s leading-edge Cartesio application processor for navigation applications.
