Its complementary situation is the case as well, with new ICs and modules making this pairing smaller, cheaper, and better. The latest generation of generation of Bluetooth 5.0-qualified IS2083BM dual-mode audio IC and associated, fully certified BM83 module (Fig. 1), developed by Microchip Technology, bring multiple benefits to the design of wireless audio subsystems. 1. The BM83 from Microchip Technology is a complete Bluetooth RF module that incorporates the company’s IS2083BM high-functionality audio IC. With its diminutive 5.5- × 5.5-mm BGA package, the IS2083BM targets small form-factor designs, enabling smaller enclosures or room for larger batteries, which in turn leads to even longer runtimes. This SoC contains an on-board Bluetooth stack, audio profiles, and supports 24-bit/96-kHz high-resol...
