Audio Precision has reached a multi-year licensing agreement with CSR, the owner of the aptX audio codec. The arrangement permits AP to add the aptX codec to its recently launched Bluetooth wireless technology test option for the APx range of audio analysers.
The APx Bluetooth option now supports A2DP, HFP, HSP and AVRCP profiles, and aptX, SBC and CVSD codecs.
“Systematic test is the key to good design, and AP is constantly adding the features and technologies our customers need to test their designs systematically,” said Tom Williams, Audio Precision VP of marketing. “For our customers designing Bluetooth devices, that means an analyser with an integrated Bluetooth radio and native support of codecs. Many of our customers are aptX licensees, so it just makes sense to add aptX to our Bluetooth option.”
