i.Tech's new Clip D-Radio Bluetooth headset features CSR's hi-tech BlueCore5-Multimedia silicon. For the uninitiated, CSR are biggies in the wireless hardware space, and this collaboration seems to be something cool. The Clip D-Radio is the world's first stereo headset to support v2.1+EDR of the Bluetooth specification and provides the wireless streaming of high quality audio from a handset, music player or its built in FM radio.
CSR's multimedia BlueCore products claim to be the only Bluetooth ICs on the market to integrate a DSP. CSR has designed BlueCore5-Multimedia to provide high grade audio performance for stereo headsets with its CODEC providing 95dB SNR. BlueCore5-Multimedia's flexible DSP architecture allows designers to add additional features to help boost the performance and functionality of their end designs (such as the FM radio in i.Tech's Clip D-Radio). The headset's BlueCore5- Multimedia system is specially designed to eliminate interference when taking a call. It also is combined with CSR's proprietary CVC technology for boosting performance
iTech has up to seven hours of quality audio streaming time, or up to 150 hours whilst on standby for the radio headset. In support of the latest Bluetooth specification v2.1+EDR, the headset is compatible with both A2DP and AVRCP profiles to enable connectivity to a wider variety of music sources whilst maintaining the ability to easily switch between phone calls and stereo music.
