PHOENIX, ARIZONA — ON Semiconductor, a leading supplier of semiconductor-based solutions, announced this week that the company’s Ezairo 7150 SL audio processor was chosen by the Consumer Technology Association (CTA) as a 2017 Consumer Electronic Show (CES) Innovation Award honoree. According to the company, the Ezairo 7150 SL is an open-programmable digital signal processing (DSP)-based hybrid, which enables wireless connectivity in hearing aids and cochlear implants.
The sophisticated audio processing module allows hearing aid manufacturers to incorporate advanced wireless features into their designs without compromising small size.
Enhancing Hearing Aid Function
The advanced Ezairo 7150 SL audio processor allows the hearing aid wearer the convenience of controlling key features (volume levels, program changes) of their hearing aid directly with their smartphone through a Bluetooth® Low Energy (BLE) connection.
Using a 2.4 GHz proprietary protocol, the processor also allows the wearer to stream audio from any media source (such as a TV or music system) using a remote ancillary device. These features help greatly enhance the user experience and improve the wearer’s quality of life.
