Audio (speech & music) continues to grow as a primary human interface on portable consumer devices. Good audio performance is becoming increasingly important in order to give consumers truly enjoyable portable audio! The PL Mobile Audio produces Audio Enhancing Amplifiers, with micro speaker driver with unrivaled acoustic performance for tiny speakers, Sensor Drivers, Low Power Amplifiers and Audio Converters.

Without protection of the tiny speakers this will give (even more) reliability issues. Therefore, speaker protection solutions and audio enhancing technologies will be increasingly important.
