Extremely low-power Bluetooth audio SoCs optimized for compact, feature-rich wireless earbuds, hearables and speakers.
The QCC302x/QCC303x/QCC304x SoC series is a family of flash programmable Bluetooth® audio System-on-Chips (SoCs) based on an ultra-low power architecture. This series is designed to meet consumer demand for robust, high quality, wireless listening experiences in smaller devices with low power consumption for longer audio playback.
These SoCs are engineered for low power performance. With the latest QCC304x SoCs power consumption can be reduced by up to 70% compared to the earlier Qualcomm® QCC300x and Qualcomm® CSRA63xxx. Power consumption is optimised for demanding use cases so as to support longer battery life in virtually all operating modes.
The flexibility provided by the flash programmable applications processor and configurable audio digital signal processors (DSPs), helps manufacturers to differentiate products without extended development cycles.
The QCC304x features ultra-low-power digital active noise cancelling (ANC) technology integrated in the SoC, designed to eliminate the need for an external ANC solution. This feature can help reduce the complexity, cost and PCB space needed for adding ANC to earbuds, hearables, and other portable audio devices.
With Qualcomm TrueWireless™ Stereo technology, these SoCs are engineered to deliver robustness and a sophisticated user experience. The QCC304x features our Qualcomm TrueWireless Mirroring which improves robustness even further offering dynamic bud-to-bud role-swapping with Bluetooth address handover and also evens out power distribution between both earbuds.
Powerful tri-core processing designed to support flexible innovation
Tri-core processing is delivered by two dedicated configurable 32-bit application processor subsystems and a Qualcomm® Kalimba™ DSP audio subsystem. A new feature-rich audio development kit (ADK) and enhanced development tools are designed to help reduce time needed for integration and commercialization.
The QCC302x/QCC03x/QCC304x series is designed for unprecedented efficiency in power consumption compared to our previous technology. These SoCs support the development of very small form factor, richly-featured earbuds that can be used for up to 10 hours with a 65mHA battery.1
High quality wireless audio
Qualcomm® aptX™ Audio and aptX HD audio technologies are designed to deliver consistent, high quality audio streaming over Bluetooth. The internal 24-bit end-to-end audio pipeline and high-performance DACs are designed to deliver high resolution audio through the audio processing chain.
Qualcomm TrueWireless Mirroring
The QCC304x devices feature Qualcomm TrueWireless Mirroring, a new topology that combines the best of our eavesdropping and relay solutions to deliver robustness while also supporting role-swapping and bud-to-bud Bluetooth address handover, dynamically and with virtually no interruption to the audio.
Digital Assistant ready
Support for voice services is available via button-press activation. This feature is designed to relay the audio stream and voice control capabilities to a handset to process and execute commands.
