March 27, 2019 Katelyn Albani

CAMARILLO, CA. Semtech Corporation and Sonova announced their partnership to create new hearing aid solutions for better IoT connectivity. This ultra-small integrated circuit is a main component for a new generation of hearing aids, enabling support for multiple radio protocols in the 2.4GHz band, as well as effective operation on very low power.

“This chip allows Sonova to move in a new direction with our hearing aids,” said Sonova’s Director of Research & Development Wireless, Marc Secall. “The breakthrough radio technology and power management are the game changers for hearing aids. It allows them to support a number of applications that have previously not been possible in a hearing aid, all at low power consumption and low supply voltage. Possible applications span from connectivity to any Bluetooth enabled audio device (e.g. a smartphone or television) to full duplex audio streaming between hearing aids and connectivity to wireless microphones.”
