IRVINE, USA: Broadcom Corp. has announced a new Bluetooth reference design platform that will enable improved audio quality and a more compelling user experience in a broader range of handsfree car kit devices.
This new design platform, built upon the successful Broadcom BCM20741 family of Bluetooth SoC solutions for headset devices, includes an upgrade to its SmartAudio sound and voice enhancement technology that reduces annoying background noise to deliver clear conversations in all driving conditions.
