Share Article

Eleven Engineering, a global leader in digital wireless audio, today announced Squeak 1C, a new family of 2.1 channel wireless audio modules for home theater products based on Eleven's XInC2 multithreaded processor and Texas Instruments' CC2400 RF transceiver and LNA/PA RF range extender.

Eleven's key to success in the home theater market has always been to provide modules with the industry's best reliability and coexistence with other wireless products. By working closely with TI, we have been able to deliver exactly that in our new 2.1 channel wireless modules.

Eleven Engineering, a global leader in digital wireless audio, today announced Squeak 1C, a new family of 2.1 channel wireless audio modules for home theater products based on Eleven's XInC2 multithreaded processor and Texas Instruments' CC2400 RF transceiver and LNA/PA RF range extender.

Squeak 1C eliminates the awkwardness of connecting rear speakers and the negative aesthetic associated with the subwoofer. In many cases, home theater hardware is considered inelegant, especially the wiring and the large visible items such as the subwoofer, and significantly hinders market acceptance of home theater systems. Simply stated, the living room is considered a showpiece within the home and the home theater system can be a major detractor.

"Our new 2.1 channel Squeak 1C wireless modules enable a wireless connection to each of the rear surround speakers as well as to the subwoofer, enabling it to be hidden beside, behind, or underneath the sofa," said John Sobota, CEO of Eleven Engineering. "Eleven's key to success in the home theater market has always been to provide modules with the industry's best reliability and coexistence with other wireless products. By working closely with TI, we have been able to deliver exactly that in our new 2.1 channel wireless modules."

"TI is pleased to work with Eleven Engineering to bring the Squeak 1C 2.1 channel wireless audio modules to the living room. Eleven needed a rock-solid physical layer and TI's 2.4GHz RF solutions allow the Squeak protocol to sing by providing a clean, narrow footprint, coupled with fast direction and channel switching," said Laurent Giai-Miniet, product line manager for TI's low-power wireless products. "Quality of service is important, but it is also critical that solutions in the crowded 2.4 GHz frequency range use the band sparingly and efficiently so that other products may co-exist. Combined with TI's agile narrowband transceivers, such as the CC2400, Squeak 1C delivers both quality of service and coexistence."
