Kleer 's Audio LP line of RF wireless modules features high quality audio, low power consumption and robust ISM band coexistence.
Kleer's patented subsampling radio architecture was designed to communicate lossless CD-quality digital stereo audio over a robust 2.4GHz radio link, while achieving 10 times the battery life of a comparable Bluetooth solution.
Kleer's Audio LP technology is ideal for consumer electronics OEMs that want to develop interoperable wireless audio products for the portable, home and automotive audio markets.
The first product in the is the KLR3012 module. It integrates Kleer's mixed signal RFIC with RF passives artfully to minimize RF design expertise is required to implement a product.
Kleer's embedded software also offers complete and configurable functionality enabling the implementation of products with little or no software development.
Kleer's proprietary products are a direct challenge to Bluetooth. The company claims that its Audio LP modules offer the following advantages over Bluetooth:
- Lossless transmission of 16-bit, 44.1KHz-sampled stereo audio to deliver full CD-quality audio. Lossless transmission also enables the
'beaming" of music or other data files from one player to another.
- 10 times the battery life of a comparable Bluetooth solution. This enables OEMs to integrate wireless technology into portable audio players without suffering a large penalty in battery life. OEMs can introduce new small form factor products such as wireless earphones knowing that small batteries will still give them acceptable battery life.>/li>
- Best-in-class ISM band co-existence by dynamically selecting one out of 16 narrowband channels, each of which can fit in the gaps between wireless LAN channels, and ensuring that only unoccupied channels are selected.
- Kleer's Listen In technology that enables users to share the listening experience by having multiple wireless earphones, headphones or speakers listening simultaneously to the same audio source.
Kleer's Audio LP line will be exhibited at CES 2007, at the Sands Convention Center, booth #IP209.
The KLR3012 module is available for sampling
today. Volume production begins in the first quarter of 2007. More information is available at www.kleer.com
