Universality of WiSA E Drives Licensing Business Opportunities


WiSA Technologies, Inc. (Nasdaq: WISA), a leading innovator in wireless audio technology for intelligent devices and next-generation home entertainment systems, continues to see strong interest from major consumer electronics TV, projector, and set-top manufacturers for licensing its WiSA E technology. The Company is pleased to report that five WiSA E licenses with major brands in each category have been signed and that three additional global brands are currently reviewing the WiSA E licensing agreement. The first WiSA E-enabled products are scheduled to be delivered in the second half of 2024.

"WiSA E is designed to work with all the mainstream processors, operating systems, and Wi-Fi chips enabling seamless integration with TVs, set-top boxes or projectors with no additional parts and no additional BOM cost," said Tony Ostrom, president of the WiSA Association. "It is this universal quality of WiSA E that makes it so compelling to our customers. Five major brands have already signed licensing agreements; more are expected soon."

WiSA E has found strong traction in the market because of its universality in implementation and ubiquitous interoperability:

  • System-on-Chip (SoC) agnostic
    • Compatibility with a wide array of SoCs including MediaTek, Qualcomm, Espressif, Amlogic, Realtek, Sunplus, and more.
  • Operating-system agnostic
    • Currently integrated with Android devices.
  • Wi-Fi agnostic
    • High-quality functionality across any Wi-Fi compliant chip.
  • Device agnostic
    • Seamlessly embedded into TVs, mobile devices, set-top boxes, or projectors.
  • Interoperable
    • WiSA E is designed to be interoperable between WiSA E audio source devices and WiSA E audio playback equipment, including speakers, soundbars, subwoofers, smart speakers, and headphones.
  • Zero BOM (bill of materials) cost
    • WiSA E can be implemented in source devices at zero cost, providing a cost-effective solution without compromising on quality or performance.
