A2B Transceivers Deliver Unparalleled Flexibility



Analog Devices announces three enhanced Automotive Audio Bus (A2B) transceivers that deliver unprecedented capability to tailor system-level performance to even the most stringent electromagnetic compatibility requirements. The new AD242xW series offers configurable transmit power levels, enabling the developer to match system performance to specific OEM EMC requirements – a key design criterion for all feature-rich automotive infotainment systems. The transceivers also allow expanded use cases for microphone connectivity and significantly reduce cabling complexity by distributing audio and control data plus clock and power over a single, unshielded twisted-pair wire. These features drastically lower system cost and are ideal for emerging multi-mic applications such as road noise cancellation, in-car communications, and autonomous driving.
