CM6400 is an advanced highly-integrated USB audio single chip optimized for featured USB headset or other audio applications. CM6400 integrates 5-band hardware digital equalizer (EQ) processing unit with up-to-4 presets to fit different applications or improve headphone SPL characteristics. In addition, embedded Mic Auto-Gain-Control (AGC) and clipping-protection functionality could automatically adjust variant sound input scale to get rid of large signal clipping and also get more constant recording level during voice communication. With outstanding SNR/THD audio performance overtaking WHQL standard and its versatile HW functions, CM6400 is the ideal all-in-one USB headset chip that could empower and differentiate your product ideas at your own will.
