For Researchers
Our platform is based on an Internet of Things (IoT). We call it IT:

with sensors to support EEG and Behind-the-Ear Receivers-in-the-Canal (BTE-RICs) (Thing 1)

and an Edge node with sound processing, machine learning, apps, and cloud connectivity (Thing 2).

Processing and Communication Device (PCD)
Behind-the-Ear, Receivers-in-the-Canal (BTE-RICs)
Wearing the PCD and BTE-RICs
For Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs)
We offer Intellectual Property (IP) licensing along with reference designs, hardware development kits (HDKs), and software development kits (SDKs).
