Launched as the first digital audio hub for mobile phones, the segment-defining WM8995 allows users to optimally manage the complex world of multiple concurrent-use cases where, for example, the end user can take a hands-free call over a Bluetooth headset while listening to music and receiving navigation commands, simultaneously on the same handset. Its advanced accessory detection capability enables complete audio remote control, supporting up to seven function buttons on a headset. One key advantage of the WM8995 digital hub is that it allows ease of audio scalability and repeatability across the handset tiering. Other features include a dual cap-less Class W headphone driver, next generation digital filters, and a two-pin serial audio data interface for transmitting PDM data to digital-input amplifiers. Price for the WM8995 is $2.20 each/10,000. WOLFSON MICROELECTRONICS PLC, San Diego, CA. (858) 676-5090.
