Creation of a LE-audio configuration application for smartphones

Introduction

The NXP Product Line Personal Health, headquartered in Leuven, develops application specific ICs used in hearing aids & implants, Wireless headsets & earbuds and personal health monitoring applications. Next to ICs, we develop, maintain and support CoolFlux DSP.

Personal Health not only develops the silicon, we also create the embedded software applications.

The Assignment A big chunk of our product portfolio covers wireless audio streaming solutions based on LE-Audio technology. Given the newly adopted Bluetooth spec, which allows LE audio streaming from 3rd party devices, we are now faced with interoperability opportunities / challenges. Looking at some use cases like Gaming Headsets, Home Audio Entertainment etc., one could think of use case specific configuration parameters which are not natively supported by the specification. Given this fact, as an extra step in interoperability with smartphones we would like to develop a demo application running on the smartphone (Android and or IOS) which facilitates configuration of these parameters from a phone to a headset. The assignment will: • offer an opportunity to be part of a professional (embedded) software team. • deep dive into Bluetooth Low Energy and its audio features. • Experience development of smartphone applications.

The internship or student job assignment is planned for 6 to 8 weeks full-time. It will be impossible to cover all aspects of the topic in one or a few months, but meaningful first steps may be taken.
