The high-performance, low-power consumption combination makes their processor ideal for mobile phones, hearables and smart home products like smart speakers, hubs, cameras and TVs.

We are very excited to work with Knowles on their open DSP platform architecture, as it provides the perfect blend of power efficiency and versatility for consumer tech manufacturers.
