Qualcomm Bluetooth Audio SoC
Qualcomm debuted a Bluetooth SoC for wireless audio devices, or "hearables," at CES. The chip company said that its new SoC, the QCC5100 series, would reduce power consumption and increase processing power in wireless earbuds and headsets. The SoC has an array of attractive features, including Bluetooth 5 dual-mode radio, noise cancellation technology and low-power audio systems.
The announcement comes as more vendors showed off hearing technology – including ear-to-ear translation earbuds and noise-cancelling wireless earbuds – at CES.
