STMicroelectronics and Alango Technologies Ltd have entered a licensing agreement, under which ST will integrate Alango's software technologies into ST's Bluetooth chips for car infotainment applications, such as hands-free kits.

Automotive OEMs increasingly require turn-key car infotainment platforms that integrate hardware, Bluetooth software and voice-quality-enhancement algorithms. The integration of Alango's Voice Communication Package (VCP) into ST's leading-edge automotive chips will enable ST to offer single-combo platforms, leading to benefits such as lower BOM costs and smaller supply chains for automotive customers. The Alango VCP includes acoustic echo cancellation, single- and dual-microphone noise reduction, automatic gain control and other valuable and sound-improving technologies.

The Alango VCP technologies are available for immediate integration into ST's automotive infotainment portfolio, including the STA2500D Bluetooth IC and the company's Cartesio application processor for navigation applications.

"Alango has a proven package of best-in-class and highly efficient voice-enhancement technologies," said Fabio Marchio, general manager, automotive infotainment division, automotive product group, ST. "These technologies will further enhance ST's automotive products and our customers will benefit from the combined 'one-stop-solution' and unified customer support."
