HD audio ICs for PCs laptopsWolfson Microelectronics plc has announced its new HD Audio product line for PCs and laptops. The WM8850 and WM8860 are asserted to deliver exceptional audio performance, excellent signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) and total harmonic distortion (THD) performance, while also enabling a smaller PCB area, reduced bill of materials (BOM) and significantly lower power consumption. Both devices are fully compatible with the industry-standard High Definition Audio interface and compliant with Windows Hardware Quality Labs (WHQL). The WM8850 features three high performance stereo digital-to-analog converters (DACs) to enable six channels of HD Audio, suitable for 5.1 surround sound multichannel audio systems, while the WM8860 incorporates two high performance stereo DACs to enable four channels of high definition audio. The accompanying software enables advanced use cases, low power operation, and builds upon the Windows 7 audio framework, while also supporting Windows Vista, XP and Linux.
