nRF5340 Audio Development Kit for BLE Audio Standard



Building a Wireless Audio Solution? The new BLE Audio Standards allow connecting a single pair of Bluetooth headphones to multiple devices at the same time. LC3 Codec of this standard provides the same audio quality but at 50% lower bit rate. BLE Audio represents one of those rare occasions where there's no technical trade-offs
