The DARR83 audio baseband processor is at the heart of Microchip's next generation of wireless audio solutions. Multiple innovative technologies, including Microchip's Wireless DNA™ Detect 'n Avoid architecture, deliver excellent co-existence with other wireless products such as Wi-Fi and Bluetooth, without impacting the robust wireless audio link. This tri-band technology yields excellent wireless performance, even when the DARR83 is co-located with Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n technology.
The DARR83 offers a multi-point to multi-point HD wireless audio platform for consumer electronics including home entertainment, PC and gaming console/headset applications, among others. A DWAM83-TB reference design is available and can easily be applied to the afore-mentioned applications.* The DARR83 supports both SD and HD audio links, offering a wide range of sample rates (from 24 to 96kHz) and resolutions (from 16 to 24-bits). The integrated USB 2.0 PHY and controller offer a bi-directional, multi-stream audio interface. This feature enables the DARR83 to act as a USB audio device with the capability to support up to eight mono audio channels. The DARR83 integrates many automated functions such as seamless RF band switching, RF channel selection, transmitter/receiver association and low-power audio snooze mode. This robust feature set facilitates easy product integration and provides end-users with a simple, reliable and intuitive wireless audio solution.
