International CES 2015 Wrap

We had an amazing time at last week's International Consumer Electronics Show. We saw were so many incredible products there, and lots of possible applications for Indice's ADC and DAC technology. Of course, we spent a bit of time with the Rare Audio team to celebrate the selection of its Element 4.1 car audio amplifier as a 2015 CES Innovation Awards Honoree. The amplifier features Indice Semiconductor components, including an amplifier module and a power supply unit. Indice’s electrolytic capacitor-free amplifier module ensures the Element 4.1 has a slimline, modern look, while improving the reliability and lifespan of the unit. In keeping with our high standards of audio quality, 350WRMS @ 1% THD into 4 Ω, 700WRMS into 2Ω mean the Element 4.1 amplifier has incredible high fidelity sound, with half a horse power per speaker. An SNR of >108dB ensures no audible hiss, even when the car engine is turned off. We also met with some interesting people to talk about our Blade power amplifier module, which has an impressive high-resolution frequency response of >50kHz. The Blade delivers uncompromising control of speakers with excellent attack, fade and phase response, and has an incredible 114dB SNR and THD <0.003. This is only possible with our proprietary Continuous SigmaTM encoding with direct drive technology. When we weren't talking about amplifiers, we did manage to step out onto the show floor to explore some of the other wonders of CES. Are guys in the Indice innovations lab love 3D printing, and a couple of our engineers have built their own, so naturally we checked out the 3D printing section of the show. It is well documented that engineers love pizza, so it should come as no surprise that this was [...]
