EUHA 2017 – Hall 4A, Booth D02 – ON Semiconductor (Nasdaq: ON), a Phoenix, Ariz-based semiconductor supplier company, announced it will present its Ezairo Preconfigured Suite (Pre Suite) at EUHA 2017. Ezairo Pre Suite, according to the company, is a development toolkit designed to enable turnkey solutions based on the company’s Ezairo 7100 Digital Signal Processor (DSP).

The wireless-enabled Ezairo 7150 SL is reportedly the first hybrid module to be supported by the Ezairo Pre Suite, with a firmware bundle that is designed to make it easier to build wireless-enabled hearing aids. It features Wide Dynamic Range Compression (WDRC), adaptive noise reduction, support for directional microphones, acoustic feedback cancellation, and environmental classification. The firmware bundle also provides support for advanced wireless features.

To help manufacturers tailor the Ezairo-based firmware bundles to their specific needs, ON Semiconductor provides a Windows®-based software package which is said to act as a complete end-to-end user interface for developing next-generation hearing aids. The software package includes features such as transducer modeling and calibration, parameter control, and live diagnostic tools that help fine tune performance and optimize audio quality. Also included is a cross-platform Software Development Kit (SDK) which not only supports Windows, but mobile platforms as well, including both iOS® and Android®, with wired or wireless communications over Bluetooth® low energy (BLE) technology possible.

“The Ezairo Pre Suite represents a serious leap forward in supporting hearing aid development,” said Michel De Mey, senior director of hearing health solutions at ON Semiconductor. “It provides manufacturers with a complete easy-to-use, turnkey solution with all components needed to create a hearing aid or OTC device. The mobile SDK is a compelling addition to the software, enabling the creation of new and exciting ways for users to interact with their hearing devices from their smartphones.”
