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 [...]

Indice will be at the SEMA Show in Las Vegas!

If you haven't had the opportunity to talk to us in person about our audio amplifier and power supply modules yet, now is your chance. Indice Semiconductor's CTO James Hamond and other members of the Indice team will be attending the SEMA Show next week in Las Vegas on the 5th November. As this is the premier global automotive specialty products trade event, we're excited to have this opportunity to talk to our customers about integrating Indice amplifier modules into OEM, after-market and electric vehicle audio products. Our Katana and Blade amplifiers are ever-improving, with recent test results showing a formidable THD 0.003 for both modules, as well as an impressive Signal to Noise Ratio: Katana: 118dB @ 50V into 2Ω or 4Ω load Blade: 114dB @ 27V into 2Ω or 4Ω load Both amplifiers feature Indice's unique Continuous Sigma encoding method, enabling this incredible THD and SNR, as well as high efficiency for both modules. To read full specs, visit our Downloads section. Our high performance PSU is regenerative and sends reactive energy from the speaker back to the car's power source. It is the first of its kind in the car audio market and boosts system performance and efficiency. Specs for this module include: Efficiency: >95% Ripple: <-60dB Efficiency: >95% Electrolytic capacitor free design Make sure you don't miss us - email sales@indicesemi.com to secure a time to meet with our CTO James Hamond. As part of the AAIW, the SEMA Show attracts more than 100,000 industry leaders from more than 100 countries for unlimited profit opportunities in the automotive, truck and SUV, powersports, and RV markets. It will be held at the Las Vegas Convention Centre from 4th until 7th November, however Indice will only be attending on [...]
