CEVA, a licensor of signal processing platforms and artificial intelligence processors, has announced that Sonova, a leading provider of hearing solutions, has licensed and deployed the company’s RivieraWaves Bluetooth IP in its latest SWORD 3.0 wireless chip for hearing aids and other smart hearing devices.

SWORD 3.0 is the first and only hearing aid radio chip to fully support direct binaural streaming of audio content and phone calls from billions of Bluetooth enabled devices. Through data connection of SWORD 3.0 to a smartphone, internet access is achieved allowing hearing aid wearers to have their devices adjusted virtually in real-time, in any situation, anywhere by the hearing care professional.

In addition, voice-to-text phone call transcription is possible, providing live visual captions as an additional help to the user.

“Our latest generation SWORD chip reinforces our mission to continually introduce new and innovative technologies that greatly improve the user experience of hearing aids. The integration of CEVA’s Bluetooth Dual Mode IP into our wireless chip enables us to bring low power stereo audio streaming and data connectivity to our hearing aids, giving our customers a much better user experience,” said Marc Secall, Director Research & Development Wireless of Sonova.
