Analog Devices recently came up with three enhanced Automotive Audio Bus (A2B) transceivers that are capable of delivering unmatched ability to customize system-level performance even for most stringent EMC (Electromagnetic Compatibility) requirements. The latest AD242x transcever series promises configurable transmit power levels, allowing the developer to bring match between OEM EMC requirements and performance. OEM EMC is one of the most important design criterion for a feature-rich automated infotainment systems.
The A2B transceivers also permit expanded use for connectivity of microphone and significantly bring down cabling complications through even distribution of control and audio data plus clock along with power for evolving multi-mic applications like in-car communications, autonomous driving, as well as road noise cancellation. The advanced AD2428W, AD2427W, and AD2426W devces are completely pin-compatible with pre-existing series members which simplifies the speeding and upgrading time for marketing.
Darby Hadley, the Vice President Global Engineering Car Audio SBU for HARMAN Lifestyle Audio Division, is of the opinion that, “The A2B technology has proven to be a simple and cost-effective digital audio interconnect solution with the scalability that enables HARMAN to deliver a broad range of differentiated systems across multiple vehicle platforms. The AD242x series offers a seamless and fast time-to-market upgrade path for our existing A2B car audio solutions.”
