Bluegiga Technologies, a provider of Bluetooth platforms for system integrators and OEMs and available through GLYN High-Tech Distribution, has released new WT32 Bluetooth audio module, the new addition to its range of Bluetooth modules.
Incorporating CSR’s BlueCore-5 multimedia chipset and supporting the new Bluetooth 2.1 with Enhanced Data Rate (EDR) wireless technology, WT32 offers its users a pleasant Hi-Fi audio experience.
WT32 is designed to require a minimum amount of external components – it is equipped with Bluetooth radio, integrated antenna/connector, 16-bit stereo codec, embedded DSP and battery charger.
WT32 also has Bluetooth end product certification as well as the CE, FCC and Industry Canada approvals, minimising the amount of additional RF testing demands and securing a fast and easy path to develop products to be fully Bluetooth compliant.
The 16-bit dual ADC and DAC stereo codec is able to sample audio with rates up to 48kHz and have integrated amplifiers for driving speakers.
The low power DSP core and can be loaded with additional DSP algorithms that provide audio enhancement, noise cancellation and for example speech to text capabilities.
WT32 comes with Bluegiga’s iWRAPTM firmware, which makes the use of Bluetooth wireless technology easier.
For audio applications iWRAP firmware implements Advanced Audio Distribution Profile (A2DP), Audio Video Remote Control Profile (AVCRCP) and Hands-free (HFP) Bluetooth profiles.
iWRAPTM can also be configured to function completely autonomously and no external processors are needed for controlling it.
WT32 is designed to be embedded into products that need short range audio capabilities such as high quality stereo and mono headsets/headphones, hands-free car kits, wireless speakers and microphones, handheld devices, MP3 players, mobile phone accessories targeted to a variety of markets; automotive, medical and telemedicine, high-quality consumer electronics and industrial applications. In addition, it can also be used to transfer analogue sensor information.
