Summit Semiconductor Delivers RF Modules Enabling High Performance Multi-Channel Wireless Speakers for Pro-Audio Market

Summer NAMM 2013, Nashville, Exhibit 1669

PORTLAND, OR--(Marketwired - Jul 2, 2013) - Summit Semiconductor, a leader in advanced wireless audio technologies, and an advisory board member of the Wireless Speaker and Audio (WiSA™) Association announce the industry's first high performance multi-channel wireless RF modules targeting the Pro-Audio market. A single Summit transmitter (Tx) is capable of transmitting up to eight (8) separate audio channels at 48 kHz or 96 kHz sample rates and 24 bits per sample to powered speakers.

Summit's modules exceed the requirements for system performance such as volume tracking, audio latency, network setup, audio channel assignment, mobile application control and scalability. The modules are architected for ultra low fixed latencies and minimum inter-channel delays to insure quality of sound is achieved at distances up to 30 meters line-of-site (LOS). Summit technology delivers interference-free operation and takes advantage of the unique 5GHz Unlicensed National Information Infrastructure (U-NII) frequency band which expands the number of available RF channels in which Summit can operate from (9) to up to (24). 

"The Pro-Audio/Sound Reinforcement markets, including portable PA and DJ systems have been waiting a long time for a quality wireless multi-channel technology to emerge for powered speakers," said Tony Parker, vice president of marketing, Summit Semiconductor. "Summit's 48 kHz/96kHz pre-certified modules will greatly simplify setup for small and medium venues while delivering best-in-class wireless audio performance."

Summit will be an exhibitor at the Summer National Association of Music Merchants Show (NAMM), Nashville, July 11-13, 2013, exhibit 1669. On display will be Summits new high performance wireless modules and amplifier reference designs for powered speaker applications.
