Description

​The Summit SWM908SD Tx Module, Single Antenna – Standard Distance, is designed for products in non-metallic enclosures such as Soundbars, Televisions, and Audio Hubs, where external antennas are not desired due to cost, size or style limitations. The single internal antenna module employs an RF combiner to provide access to the antenna for both the working and monitor radios, resulting in a module size approximately 30% smaller than the previous two antenna module.

​Features

  • 24 RF channels, 5-5.8 GHz operation
  • 7.1 channel, 24-bit, uncompressed audio transmission up to 96 kHz sample rates
  • 5.1 ms/2.6 ms fixed audio latency source to speaker​(48 kHz/96 kHz sample rates, respectively)
  • ±1 μs inter-channel (speaker-to-speaker) delay
  • Single integrated PCB antenna
  • Pre-certified module – FCC part 15, DFS, WiSA
  • Support for Soundbar, TV, and AVR applications

Summit Wireless Technology Overview

​Summit’s wireless network operates in the uncongested bands of the 5 GHz spectrum previously reserved for radar and weather applications but still strictly enforced.    These offer virtually interference free operation unlike over-crowded WiFi and Bluetooth networks.    The Tx is continually scanning all 24 RF channels, and should its current channel experience poor QoS, then it will coordinate a Tx/Rx hop to a pre-selected open band without interrupting the audio stream.
