March 4, 2019 Laura Dolan

London, UK. Dialog Semiconductor’s audio and Configurable Mixed Signal ICs (CMICs) were retained by Huawei for their HONOR FlyPods, their True Wireless Stereo (TWS) earbuds.

Each FlyPod earbud and is connected to a pair of Voice Pick Up (VPU) sensors and employs one of Dialog’s SmartBeat DA14195 System-on-Chip (SoC), as the on-chip audio digital signal processor (DSP) and ARM Cortex-M0 microcontroller operates on very low power with high hit rate voice control.

Dialog is also using three of its GreenPAK ICs with one in each earbud and one in the charging case in an effort to improve the charging capabilities of the Huawei HONOR FlyPods by supplying an affordable power line communication solution.

“Huawei’s true wireless stereo earbuds needed seamless voice control and battery charging to meet the needs of today’s consumer,” said Connectivity Business Group’s Senior Vice President and General Manager, Sean McGrath. “Dialog and Huawei engineering teams worked closely together to provide a highly optimized chipset solution that delivers these key features. The HONOR FlyPods demonstrate Dialog’s ability to provide multi-chip system solutions into very low power, small form factor devices and we are proud that Huawei chose to integrate our products into theirs.”
