ON Semiconductor launches new system-on-chip (SoC) solution for noise reduction

Telecom Lead America: ON Semiconductor has launched a new system-on-chip (SoC) solution that helps in noise reduction.

ON Semiconductor launches new system-on-chip (SoC) solution for noise reduction

The new SoC solution provides wideband single- or dual-microphone noise reduction in a range of voice capture devices such as mobile phones, VoIP applications including webcams and tablet computers, and two-way radios.

ON Semiconductor has priced BelaSigna R262 at $2 per unit in 10,000 unit quantities.

BelaSigna R262, according to ON Semiconductor, offers a complete hardware and software solution with built-in voice capture and noise reduction technology. The new ON solution is effective in managing stationary and nonstationary background and mechanical noise.

With full 8 kilohertz (kHz) bandwidth wideband voice capture for VoIP communication, de-reverberation capability and 360-degree voice pickup, BelaSigna R262 is ideal for conference, handset and arm’s length applications.

BelaSigna R262, as claimed by ON Semiconductor, integrates a digital signal processor, voltage regulators, phase-locked loop, level translator and memory all within a small footprint WLCSP package of less than 6 square millimeters, requiring less board space than significantly larger competing solutions that often require additional external components. This simplifies and accelerates the design process and helps engineers meet challenging design size-reduction objectives.

“BelaSigna R262 is a unique, drop-in solution for communication devices that pose the most complex voice management design challenges,” said Michel De Mey, senior director portable audio products at ON Semiconductor.

“With ever-increasing customer expectations regarding voice clarity and noise management – particularly in the rapidly-expanding VoIP market – it is important that designers have access to technology like ON Semiconductor’s BelaSigna R262 to support them in offering compelling products that do not place restrictions on how and where clear and intelligible communications can take place,” Mey added.
