NXP brings new small audio system with 5 times stronger beats and deeper bass for smartphones and tablets
NXP Semiconductors has introduced a brand new audio system with embedded algorithm that allows boosting the output power five times and delivering not only louder sound, but deeper bass, and higher overall quality.

So far, smartphone and tablets’ audio systems could only drive 0.5 watts of output power, while the new NXP TFA9887 chip brings 2.6-watt RMS (a measure for the power of an amplifier), which is nearly five times more. Along with the boosted output come improved safety features like adaptive excursion control and real-time temperature protection.

“Our new audio system transforms the listening experience, enabling louder, richer sound quality from virtually any mobile device. The improvement is so striking that consumers, handset makers and operators will immediately hear the difference,” NXP marketing director Shawn Scarlett said.

As you probably know, bass sounds tinny at best and is indistinguishable at worst on smaller devices like tablets and smartphones and that’s largely due to the small size of the audio system. With smaller speakers came limited output power and quality, but another factor for the virtually non-existent bass on smartphones was that even though they had the extra power it was impossible to say when it could be safely used. The new safety features of the TFA9887 chip promise to fix that, and we’re eager to hear it ourselves.
