Hearing loss is a silent problem that often goes untreated for years. Recent studies have shown that adults with untreated hearing loss have significantly higher rates for psychosocial disorders such as depression and anxiety, are at higher risk of developing dementia, and incur higher medical bills compared to those without hearing loss. Today’s hearing solutions include removable and implantable hearing aids such as advanced digital hearing aids and cochlear implants for those with severe hearing loss, respectively. A wide range of assistive listening devices (ALDs) are also available for a variety of situations and listening environments. Patient expectations of hearing solutions vary depending on age, hearing loss magnitude and first-time use, and hearing aid manufacturers are responding to patient demands and competitive pressures with ever-improving designs. However, challenges remain, especially in striking a balance between increased functionality and long battery life. ON Semiconductor has been the leader in ultra-low power consumption solutions for hearing aid manufacturers for decades. Our ongoing R&D efforts align with your design challenges to deliver the widest selection of products in the industry from preconfigured to fully-customized solutions. You can now design hearing aids with the best performance, functionality, and secure wireless connections combined with the lowest power consumption in the industry and ultra-miniature size.
The Ezairo 5900 series features two independent and fully programmable signal processing cores, each with unique attributes. Both cores ensure an evenly balanced work load for sophisticated audio processing algorithms, optimizing power consumption and processing efficiency while delivering maximum flexibility.
The Ezairo 7100 series of open-programmable DSP-based systems meets the high performance and stringent power consumption requirements of advanced hearing aids and hearing implant devices. The unique, high-precision quad-core architecture is the industry’s most integrated, flexible and power efficient single chip solution.
Ezairo 7150 SL is an open-programmable DSP-based hybrid which enables wireless connectivity in hearing aids and cochlear implants. The miniature hybrid is based on the Ezairo 7100 DSP platform, which is the industry’s most integrated, flexible, and power efficient, mixed-signal DSP solution.
Enabling wireless connectivity in hearing aids, Ezairo 7160 SL is an open-programmable DSP-based hybrid module that supports Bluetooth Low Energy and other 2.4 GHz wireless protocols.
Ezairo 7111 is an open-programmable DSP-based hybrid module designed specifically for non-wireless hearing aids, including In-the-Canal (ITC) applications.
Whether you need an implementation-ready solution or an open-platform on which to develop your own innovative algorithms, ON Semiconductor’s development tools can help you bring a hearing aid based on the industry-leading Ezairo platform to market as quickly as possible.
ON Semiconductor solutions for hearing health supports the full range of clinical hearing aids and consumer-based hearables infrastructure.
