Success Story SigmaDSP Chip, Analog Devices

Making morning coffee a sensual treat again.

Have you grown accustomed to the noise that accompanies the simple task of brewing a cup of coffee? We haven't.

The company

U.S.-based Analog Devices is a world leader in designing, manufacturing, and distributing high-performance analog and digital signal processing circuits. Its products are used in virtually all types of electronic equipment.

The challenge

To reduce noise emissions of mechanical devices – e.g. coffee machines – and without driving up the price, necessary technology must be available on a low-cost, easy-to-integrate microchip.

The solution

Rocket Science has worked with Analog Devices engineers to incorporate their proven, high-performance noise cancellation technology (Active Noise Control or Active Noise Cancelling) onto their SigmaDSP chip (Digital Signal Processor). This chip can be produced in large quantities at a reasonable cost. The possibilities for reducing noise from mechanical devices are endless, thanks to Analog Devices' chip.

Learn more about the technology for coffee makers in this video of the demonstration at CES 2020.

Shaping sound

The concept of eliminating noise & vibrations with its negative equivalent goes as far back as June 1933, when Paul Lueg filed his patent on “silencing sound oscillations”. Yet active noise control has never found widespread application until recently. Read our case studies to learn how you can use the technology.

Using sound

Sound is stronger than light and carries an abundance of information. To date many factories and robots still are deaf. We are here to provide them with ears and use the information to understand and interact effectively.

sound is stronger than light

Fun fact: The untapped potential of sound revolutionizes industries and enhances human-machine interaction, showcasing its superiority over visual stimuli.
