For many gamers, a reliable headset is vital to the gaming experience. From the quality of the audio to battery life-spans, the headset has the power to determine whether a gamer can succeed, be it winning a shoot-em-up deathmatch to conquering a mystical fantasy realm. Losing audio connection in the middle of a game would be a nightmare — thus, the best headsets on the market need extremely low latency and a long battery life to prevent from unexpected drop outs.
The importance of gaming audio was the inspiration for NXP’s single-chip, wireless audio streaming solution: the NXH3670. Designed by the Personal Health team within the Secure Interfaces and Power business line, the NXH3670 extends Bluetooth Low Energy 5.0 technology to enable high-performance wireless audio communication. The chip delivers an optimized architecture, embedded with DSP and hardware audio support, to offer robust, high-quality, and ultra-low latency audio and voice streaming.
With NXP’s efficient streaming protocol reducing power consumption to 8.5mw, ensuring the lowest active energy consumption in the market, and a design that requires a low-external component count, the NXH3670 empowers gaming headset manufacturers to create devices with not only an ultra-long battery life, but with a lightweight, comfortable design as well. This means that headsets with the NXH3670 will not only perform at the top of its class, with a latency of 20ms and an unprecedented playtime, but will be far more pleasant to wear.
Wherever you are, whatever time it is, and regardless of how long you’ve been playing, the NXH3670 is designed to keep the thrills of gaming alive. Our solution connects gamers around the world by ensuring crisp, clean reception and clear, uninterrupted audio for hours on end. It enables new form factors for wireless gaming like in-ear banded headsets, and can also be applied in a variety of other applications like soundbars, wireless speakers, and communication and TV headsets.
We are excited to see the NXH3670 outperform its competitors, and to equip gamers across the world with an unparalleled gaming experience. With the long-lasting, low-latency, and slick headsets designs we enable, audio will be the last thing a gamer will need to worry about.
