Tempow is a research and design lab focused on pushing the limits of Bluetooth technology. Their first product, the Tempow Audio Profile (TAP) is an updated Bluetooth protocol allowing any Bluetooth chip to stream audio on multiple Bluetooth audio outputs simultaneously. It is a 100% software solution, and works with any brand of Bluetooth speaker on any chip. The company is headquartered in Paris, France, with extended operations in Seoul, Korea and Beijing, China.
“We’ve been focused on creating new Bluetooth-enabled audio experiences for years, so we’re very well-versed in the technical challenges associated with building these kinds of products,” says Vincent Nallatamby, CEO of Tempow. “We’ve been wanting to work at the chipset level to gain more control of the protocol for some time now, so we’re excited to start that process by working with Telink to enable the best Bluetooth-enabled hearable solution possible.”
“Tempow Stack provides a unique value proposition because it’s a complete, turnkey solution,” states Wenjun Sheng, CEO of Telink. “We believe that Tempow Stack will be a great complement to Telink’s in-house stack and will help us better serve existing customers while growing our market share. The combination of Telink’s competitive low-power dual-mode Bluetooth SoC and Tempow’s innovative software solution will bring tremendous new value to our customers.”
Telink Semiconductor, one of the world’s leading Bluetooth semiconductor companies, is the first to officially join the new partner ecosystem, and has already started working with Tempow in order to bring Tempow-powered chipsets to market in 2020. Chipset manufacturers joining the Tempow Partnership Program will be able to use Tempow Stack to develop chips with constant synchronization and sound stability between Speakers and Earbuds, increased battery life optimized for hearing devices, seamless device pairing, Audio sharing between true wireless earbuds, and multi-source sharing, allowing users to connect smartphones and laptops simultaneously.
Tempow’s new Software Stack is the latest addition to Tempow’s suite of Bluetooth audio solutions, which follows the launch of Tempow Audio Profile (TAP), a Bluetooth profile that enables any smartphone manufacturer to stream audio on multiple Bluetooth audio outputs simultaneously, and which has been deployed by both Motorola and TCL through global partnerships.
