Analog Devices announced a strategic collaboration with Hyundai Motor Company to launch the automotive industry’s first all-digital road noise cancellation system, leveraging ADI’s Automotive Audio Bus (A2B) technology. In addition to using the ADI tech in their Road-noise Active Noise Control (RANC) system, Hyundai also intends to more broadly adopt ADI’s A2B technology for its fundamental audio connectivity and infotainment applications across its automotive fleet.
Hyundai’s RANC system dramatically reduces noise within the cabin of a vehicle, by analyzing various types of noise in real-time and producing inverted soundwaves. A2B reduces cabling weight by up to 75 percent and improves automotive fuel efficiency and total system costs. ADI’s A2B is the industry’s lowest latency, high-speed digital interconnect technology distributing audio and control data together with clock and power over a single, unshielded twisted-pair wire.
