According to 52audio, there are already Winsemi lithium battery protection chips used in TWS headset products of Honor, UGreen, Edifier, FIIL, MEIZU, Transsion, BULL and other brands.
TPS SY8812 is a SoC chip specially designed for the charging compartment of bluetooth headsets, in a 3mmx3mm QFN16 package. A charging module and a discharging module are integrated inside the chip. The charging current can be adjusted externally. The discharge module integrates two output current limit switches, provides independent load presence detection and load insertion detection, and supports output current detection. The chip integrates NTC protection function, which can charge and discharge the battery more safely.
TPS SY8812 optimizes the performance of product application design reliability, the input withstand voltage is as high as DC30V, and the chip has passed the IEC62368 safety certification. SY8812 is very suitable for the design of the bluetooth headset charging compartment, which greatly simplifies the peripheral circuits and components, and provides a simple and easy-to-use solution for the application of the bluetooth headset charging compartment.
According to 52audio, the TPS power management chip has been adopted by many well-known brands such as Soundcore, F&D, UGREEN, OPPO, Xiaomi, Baidu, 1MORE, 233621, Transsion, Sabbat, Creative, and OnePlus.
The NTC thermistor that detects the temperature of the battery detects the temperature of the battery and is detected by Siyuan SY8812 to ensure that the battery is charged and discharged within the normal temperature range.

JL AD6973D4 bluetooth audio SoC, support bluetooth 5.3, built-in 32-bit DSP, support AAC, SBC decoding, support neural network noise suppression and echo cancellation, support multi-band equalizer. Support single/dual microphone noise reduction, support two-way analog microphone amplification, built-in microphone bias. Adopt QFN20-3*3 package.
According to 52audio, the bluetooth audio products of F&D, Tezo, Philips, Motorola, Amazon, boAt, Lenovo, MAOKING, Xiaomi, Baseus, SOAIY, MEES and other brands have adopted the JL solution. JL also released the AC700N series of TWS solutions this year.
Scientic SDHL1608F100MT fully magnetically shielded precision winding inductor, with the built-in step-down circuit of the bluetooth chip to supply power to the bluetooth main control chip.
SDHL series precision wire wound inductors adopt a fully magnetic shielding structure, which reduces radiation and interference to the surroundings, and can optimize the noise and pop sound of TWS earphones. The copper wire is wrapped. Under special circumstances, when inductive howling occurs, the wrapping layer can suppress the vibration of the copper wire, thereby optimizing the inductive howling phenomenon.
The shielding layer of SDHL series precision wire-wound inductors is made of materials with enhanced magnetic permeability, which enhances the performance of the inductor, and at the same time tightens the magnetic line of force, so that the bottom of the inductor can be routed. The bottom copper wire is not exposed, which can avoid high-temperature solder paste sputtering during the production process, thereby improving the quality control of mass products.
Earlier, 52audio has introduced to you in detail which inductors are used in TWS headphones, what are their functions, how to choose suitable inductors for TWS headphones, and the three models and dozens of high-quality inductor products launched by Scientific Electronics in response to the TWS headset market.
