Wolfson: say yes to great audio
End-users now have a vast array of choice when it comes to portable devices, yet many of these offerings have similar audio capabilities which don’t match the high standards of video and processing power. Device manufacturers are also under pressure to differentiate phone and tablet products from their competitors whilst keeping costs low and time to market short. We at Wolfson think that high-definition audio is a key area for any differentiation strategy, providing manufacturers and operators with an efficient way to make their device stand out from the crowd.
Take a look through the Wolfson suite of products, all under the audio hub banner, and see how we can make a difference with great audio.
