Synaptics Incorporated, the leading developer of human interface solutions, today announced that it has completed its acquisition of Conexant Systems, LLC, a technology leader in voice and audio processing solutions for the smart home.
Conexant Systems, Inc. is a leading provider of solutions for imaging, audio, embedded modem, and video surveillance applications - areas where the company has established leadership positions. Conexant leverages its core expertise in analog and mixed-signal technologies, firmware and software development, and extensive applications knowledge to deliver products that contribute to its customers' success, further strengthen its market-leading positions, and capitalize on growth opportunities in adjacent segments.
The AD1989A audio CODEC and software provide superior HD audio quality and high performance. The AD1989A has eight 101 dB DACs and six 92 dB ADCs, three stereo headphone ports, C/LFE swapping, a 2-channel digital microphone interface, digital and analog PCBeep, two independent S/PDIF outputs, and a S/PDIF input, making the AD1989A the right choice for PCs where performance is the primary consideration. The jack retasking feature on this product supports various configurations including 5.1 on 3 jacks, and front panel jack retasking. The AD1989A is available in a 48-lead RoHS compliant lead frame chip scale package in both reels and trays.
Conexant's CX20665 Audio CODEC with integrated mono Class-D speaker amplifier is specifically designed for 2.0 channel audio entertainment. The System-on-chip (SoCs) is a low-power, 102 dB Signal-to-Noise Ratio (SNR), high-performance audio CODEC with two independent pairs of DACs and two independent pairs of ADCs that support Multi-Streaming and Real Time Communications applications. High-performance analog audio performance is achieved with an integrated 5-volt to 3.3-volt low-dropout (LDO) voltage regulator, which lowers external Bill of Materials (BOM) cost. The device features dual ProCoustic™ capless headphone drivers and dual digital microphone interfaces, which further reduces BOM cost by eliminating the need for external amplifier and DC-blocking capacitors.
The CX92125 (DC1250) is a comprehensive solution for low-end to mid-range color inkjet and laser multi-function printers (MFPs). The highly integrated SoC features very high-speed hardware image processing accelerators, system I/O and powerful 32-bit microprocessor core with a memory management unit a vector floating point processor.
The CX92162 is a highly integrated multi-function printer controller for mid-range tandem color laser MFPs featuring a powerful ARM926EJ-S microprocessor core with MMU, DDR3 SDRAM support, memory card controller, LCD controller, touchscreen support, Ethernet MAC, boots from serial and NAND Flash, and has an enhanced image processing pipeline that improves the performance as well as the image quality. A complete hardware and software development kit is offered to simplify product-development efforts and allows designers to deliver product to market more quickly.
Conexant's CX93510 encoder is a mixed-signal Application-Specific Standard Product (ASSP) specifically designed for motion sensors with visual verification and image and video monitoring applications. The CX93510 supports JPEG and MJPEG image compression and processes both color and black and white images up to 30 fps. Combined with an external CMOS sensor, the CX93510 retrieves and stores compressed JPEG and audio data in an on-chip 256 KB/128 KB frame buffer so no external memory is required. The ASSP is controlled through a simple register set via the microprocessor interface and allows for wide flexibility in microprocessor selection. The device is a flexible, cost-effective, and low-power ASSP ideally suited for security applications requiring visual verification.
