Mon, 01/24/2011 - 12:10pm


consumer audio development kitHiWave Technologies’ DyadUSB Development Kit comprises two 12W RMS balanced mode radiator (BMR), full-range speaker drivers in tuned and sealed enclosures, plus a DyadUSB amplifier module featuring the company’s Audium amplifier chip. The module is configured to deliver 15W per channel burst audio from a host USB port's 2.5 W of electrical power. The module is mounted on a break-out printed circuit board that enables easy connection of the speakers and USB cable. Software is supplied to enable engineers to program the Audium amplifier chip with equalization (EQ) settings in order to evaluate voicing options and audio effects. The developers' kit allows each element of HiWave's patented audio technology to be assessed, including enclosure design and tuning. It enables designers to build up their own implementations by integrating DyadUSB components into their products. The Audium amplifier chip employs dynamic rail switching and on-chip voltage boost to deliver power efficiency, and it features on-board digital signal processing for equalization. BMR technology controls modal waveforms to combine flat-panel speaker techniques with pistonic movement. It creates room-filling, life-like sound from a single, small-format speaker driver.
