Nordic chip used in revolutionary wireless headset

Nordic Semiconductor has announced that International Electronics has selected its 2,4 GHz devices for the HeadOn Headset. The HeadOn Headset is said to be the smallest, lightest, and most advanced wire-free headset in the world. It allows users to talk wirelessly for up to 80 hours without the need for heavy chargers, and provides a standby time of three months (2000 hours).

The nRF2401A IC from Nordic, with its high level of integration, low system cost, very low power and ease of use, was used in this revolutionary product.

"The HeadOn is the most 'must have' product I have seen in a long time," says Svenn-Tore Larsen, CEO of Nordic Semiconductor. "It is extremely inspiring to see our offering and support being used in a revolutionary product like the HeadOn. I expect the HeadOn to be an absolute success in the market."

With its secure, ClearVoice Technology, the headset, which sounds as good as it looks, weighs in at just 8 grams. It fits comfortably inside the ear, and the base unit is equally as small, making the entire unit very unobtrusive.

"Nordic Semiconductor's nRF2401A has been an important instrument in our product design", says Shary Nassimi, CEO and President of International Electronics. "The performance of the radio supersedes our targets and Nordic's support in the design and realisation phase has been second to none."
