Integrated audio module for TWS earbuds and hearing aids

The Kore 4.0 UMC-P04C06012F integrated audio module is designed to equip true wireless stereo (TWS) earbuds and hearing aids with exceptional audio performance at the smallest form factor. The audio module features USound’s patented technology, making it one of the most compact audio solutions for hearables in the market.

Compact size

Featuring the thinnest MEMS speaker on the market and USound’s ASIC linear audio amplifier, the Kore 4.0 UMC-P04C06012F audio module is a ready-to-use solution for consumer electronics. The compact module allows further miniaturization of TWS earbuds and hearing aids and saves space for more sensors and components.

Low power consumption

Kore 4.0 UMC-P04C06012F is equipped with the ASIC linear audio amplifier Tarvos 1.0 UC-P3010. This power-efficient amplifier exceeds market demands reaching 0.9 mA quiescent current consumption, extending the playtime of TWS earbuds and hearing aids.

Premium sound

Designed to enhance the audio performance of TWS earbuds and OTC hearing aids, the integrated audio module Kore 4.0 UMC-P04C06012F delivers above-class audio performance fulfilling hi-res audio up to a bandwidth of 40 kHz, boasting natural and clear sound.

Water and dust resistance

The integrated audio module is built with IPx8 certified USound MEMS speakers from the Conamara series, reducing the complexity of manufacturing waterproof audio products. With a suitable seal, any audio product can achieve IP68.
