The SmartBeat™ DA7401 is a high-performance, ultra-low-power mono hi-fi codec. Featuring Renesas' custom digital hybrid ANC technology, it offers stronger suppression of ambient noise over a wider range of frequencies for the best user experience in any environment.

With its integrated audio processor, the DA7401 delivers excellent audio performance including dynamic ranges of 115 dB for playback as well as sampling rates up to 384 kHz. It offers 40 kHz audio bandwidth to support Hi-Res Audio. All this while consuming just 5.8 mW during playback with ANC.

The DA7401 comes in a choice of compact packages. It is part of a family of pin-compatible codecs, helping you to develop a complete portfolio headphone, headset and earbud solutions for any application to impress even the most demanding user. It combines industry leading audio and wideband hybrid digital active noise cancellation (ANC) in a space-saving solution whose low power consumption could enable longer playback times.
