Hearables and Wearables

Analog Devices hearables and wearable solutions enable high value human experience through advanced interfaces and interpretation. System and platform offerings allow for a more immersive and natural interaction between people and technology while simultaneously extending battery life. Key system areas of focus are adaptive hybrid active noise cancellation (ANC), high fidelity audio capture and playback, ultrahigh efficiency device power management, and intuitive gesture. ADI’s innovation helps bring a competitive edge to hearable and wearable products.

High Quality, Low Power Audio Solutions

At ADI, we have used our extensive knowledge in high fidelity audio and applied that to the hearable and wearable market where size, cost, and power are key factors; while still ensuring that we deliver best-in-class audio solutions.
