TDK Corporation has extended its solution-focused offerings by revealing the InvenSense VibeSense360 TWS solution suite. VibeSense360 is a complete portfolio of TDK solutions composed of hardware and software dedicated to the TWS market. The solutions help solve some of the most complex problems TWS OEMs face, enabling state-of-the-art features unmatched by competition.

In an evolving and multi-tiered TWS market, OEMs must offer competitive features to differentiate their products and break away from the pack. The company's solution suite enables all TWS vendors to include substantial feature value in their end products by taking advantage of its full expertise in this market.

The solution's features include "Always On" Spatial Audio: It combines the world's lowest power six-axis IMU at 280µA with the software suite to offer industry-leading head tracking accuracy. This is essential for a truly immersive 360-degree spatial audio experience. Transparency For Talk (TFT) determines when the user is speaking through vocal vibration detection and can automatically shift from ANC to transparency mode and pause any audio that may be playing. Keyword Assist can differentiate between user audio and ambient noise, helping the microphones in the TWS system by ignoring surrounding audio. This not only creates less false keyword triggers but supplies secure keyword detection. Machine Learning: Using its machine learning algorithms built to run inside the IMU, the solution can train the device to recognise certain head gestures and assign commands or actions to allow the user's head motion to control the TWS system.

"TDK is much more than just a component company. Our ability to solve complex problems and provide complete solutions to customers, integrated into a single offering, is a unique value add that TDK has in our industry," said Anson Yeganegi, director of System Solutions at InvenSense, a TDK Group Company. "The TWS market is estimated to surpass the mobile market over the next few years, and TDK has every intention of being the leader in this space as a true 'solution' provider; VibeSense360 is just the beginning."
