A new Silicon Valley startup is showing off their new integrated circuit that will offer higher quality noise suppression than existing circuitry in today's cellphones. Their technology is said to be able to block up to 25 decibels of extraneous sound
The company demonstrates its system by placing a cellphone call from a room where loud rock music is being played. When the noise suppression chip is turned on, there is a striking decline in background noise while the speakers voice remains clearly audible.
This technology has already been adopted by several handset manufacturers for release this year. No indication if Apple was amongst those interested.
