BRAGI, a European-based earphone manufacturer, is the world’s first company to release smart, truly wireless earphones, based on NXP’s NFMI transceiver technology and its Kinetis K24 microcontroller. BRAGI’s DASH-- a completely wireless hearable-- offers consumers a cord-free experience with freedom of movement, maximum comfort and high quality sound. The DASH combines three essential features into one product: a standalone music player, a live sports assistant and a smartphone companion.
With NXP’s NFMI transceiver technology, and the power and performance efficient Kinetis, the DASH is able to bring innovation to life with a truly differentiated and tiny hearable.
“One of the major hurdles in developing the DASH has been the ability to deliver reliable streaming of audio signals from ear to ear. Desperate of trying to accomplish this with 2.4GHz RF, we were relieved to come across NXP’s NFMI transceiver technology which has been used for almost a decade to enable ear to ear communication in hearing instruments,” said
“Without question, 2016 is going to be a year of more disruptive connected consumer experiences, many of which attendees will see at CES this year,” said
NXP’s latest innovation, the NXH2280, an NFMI transceiver chip offers low power, high bandwidth, more processing capabilities and increased flexibility, while streaming audio and data from ear to ear. This makes the NXH2280 an optimized solution for hearables.
In addition, NXP’s Kinetis K24 is a low power 120MHz ARM Cortex-M4F based microcontroller including 1MB of Flash, 256KB
NXP is working with a select number of lead customers to embed NXH2280 in consumer products. The production start of the NXH2280 device is scheduled for
The Kinetis K24 microcontroller is in full production today.
