[HW] TI: 3D audio chip for Android Smartphones.
Texas Instruments Incorporated (TI) introduced an integrated circuit (IC) that converts a smartphone or tablet computer's narrow soundstage into a much wider and exciting audio experience for consumers. The stereo spatial array IC and companion software tool enable mobile device designers to overcome the limited soundstage of closely spaced speakers by manipulating sounds in 3D space to create a bigger, more immersive cinematic experience.
Also included are Android drivers and an evaluation board with graphical user interface.
