Bose Active sound management software for noise cancellation in cars available on chip from NXP Semiconductors

New Update

FRAMINGHAM, USA: Bose announced it will offer its industry-leading noise-management capabilities to auto manufacturers as a software solution integrated on a chip from NXP Semiconductors N.V.


Through an engineering collaboration with NXP, vehicles without Bose speakers and amplifiers can now use Bose Active sound management technology to cancel unwanted engine and powertrain noise in a car's cabin.

The Bose software solution will operate in any vehicle using a head unit equipped with NXP's SAF775x car radio integrated circuit, and any sound system that performs in the frequency range necessary for active noise cancellation.

The Bose/NXP solution provides an easy, efficient approach for controlling engine and powertrain noise by using existing sound system designs and eliminating the weight and cost of traditional noise management.


The Bose noise-cancellation software is customizable; Bose engineers will tune it to the manufacturer's requirements, providing comprehensive, scalable support for the technology during vehicle development, pre-production and post-production.

Marc Mansell, GM of the Bose Automotive systems division said: "Bose is an industry leader in Active Sound Management technology, helping car makers efficiently control the way their vehicles sound inside the cabin. Now, we can offer that capability to new customers in a new way on a chip making our proven expertise even more accessible."

Torsten Lehmann, senior VP and GM, car entertainment solutions, NXP Semiconductors said: "The new SAF775x family of car radio and audio one-chips opens up a new field of audio applications. We're proud to bring the benefits of Bose noise management to our broad base of automotive customers and further strengthen our No. 1 position in the automotive infotainment semiconductor market."
