Eleven Engineering, Inc. Partners with Infineon Technologies
Eleven Engineering, market leader in semiconductor products for wireless audio, has entered a co-marketing agreement with Infineon Technologies AG. As an international leader in semiconductor solutions, Infineon Technologies offers a range of advanced audio amplifier solutions to maximize power efficiency, output power, and audio performance. Their products have been recognized for ease of use, safety, and sustainability.
“Eleven Engineering and Infineon Technologies’ MERUS™ team have worked together for years, jointly enabling customer products, and this partnership formalizes a tremendous opportunity for both companies to fully utilize the technology and marketing strengths of the other for years to come,” explained John Sobota, Eleven Engineering CEO and director. “For instance, our Strawberry 3 off-the-shelf motherboard is the complete package, ideal for speaker systems across multiple platforms, whether it be home theater, outdoor, Pro, studio, and DJ. It integrates the Ginseng SKAA semiconductor and the world-class, incredibly efficient MA12070P MERUS TM integrated amplifier IC from Infineon. Now, we will be even better equipped to integrate and market our wireless products utilizing Infineon’s incredibly efficient amplifier technologies from this point forward.”
Sobota continued, “Infineon’s Class-D amplifier topology significantly increases the battery life of SKAA wireless-enabled products, making them more desirable to customers. This benefit is pretty obvious. What’s less obvious is the cost impact of using Infineon amplification. When you can eliminate costly items from the bill of materials such as output inductors, chassis boxes, and dedicated heat sinks, it makes our joint offerings fantastically attractive.”
Eleven Engineering created the SKAA line to act as a new wireless HiFi audio standard. It integrates with iOS & Android devices, Mac & Windows, televisions, and more. SKAA is capable of navigating heavy WiFi and Bluetooth traffic to provide uninterrupted audio signals with the highest quality sound.
