The IS1690 multi-speaker stereo audio chip is a compact, highly integrated, CMOS single-chip RF and baseband IC for Bluetooth v3.0 +EDR 2.4GHz applications. This chip is fully compliant with Bluetooth specifications and completely backward-compatible with Bluetooth 2.0 or 1.2 systems. It incorporates Bluetooth 1M/2M/3Mbps RF, single-cycle 8bit MCU, TX/RX modem, 5-port memory controller, task/hopping controller, UART interface, and ISSC’s own Bluetooth software stack to achieve the required BT v3.0 with EDR functions.
For superior audio and voice quality, it also integrates a DSP co-processor, a PLL, and a CODEC dedicated for voice and audio applications. For voice, it supports not only basic CVSD encoding and decoding but also enhanced noise reduction and echo cancellation are implemented by the built-in DSP to achieve better quality in both sending and receiving sides. For the enhanced audio applications, SBC decoding functions can also be carried out by DSP to satisfy Bluetooth A2DP requirements.
