BEAVERTON, Ore.—The APx Bluetooth Duo module is Audio Precision’s next-generation answer to its original Bluetooth module. Featuring all the capabilities and features of that original model, the APx Bluetooth Duo offers a wider selection of A2DP codecs, faster pair and connection times, an increased feature set within APx500 measurement software and improved RF shielding.
The audio features of the APx Bluetooth Duo incorporates those of the Bluetooth 4.2 core specification and supports Handsfree Profile, Headset Profile, Audio-Video Remote Control Profile and Advanced Audio Distribution Profile. The Duo is also able to switch between the roles of A2DP source and sink, HFP/HSP audio gateway and handsfree, and AVRCP target and controller.
With the release of the new model are more A2DP codecs that are now available to Bluetooh-equipped APx series audio analyzers to AAC, aptX, aptX-HD, aptX-LL and SBC. APx Bluetooth Duo can act as either source or sink for each of the supported A2DP codecs.
The Duo is also a part of an integrated audio test solution, allowing it to share analog, digital, chip-level I2S and TDM protocols, PDM or HDMI interface capabilities installed in an APx555, APx52x Series or APx58x Series analyzer.
The APx Bluetooth Duo is now available for $4,995. Shipment is expected to begin in October.
