Breaking Down WiSA Standards, Reference Designs

At CES 2013, WiSA's Alan Ruberg discusses the group's frequency spectrum standard, references designs and then shows off the Summit Semiconductor Audio Hub.

Alan Ruberg, chief technologist of the Wireless Speaker and Audio (WiSA) Association, met with CE Pro during CES 2013 to chat about a few different things.

Ruberg provides an interesting overview of the frequency spectrum WiSA technology (first video) uses to communicate. The WiSA standard operates within the 5GHz transmission spectrum and the technical details and hurdles associated with making wireless audio work well.
