Application: Method and apparatus for performing audio enhancement with aid of timing control (Patent ID: US20240107250A1)

The patent filed by MediaTek Inc. describes a method for audio enhancement with timing control, involving a user equipment (UE) wirelessly connected to two earphones. The method includes determining synchronization delays for each earphone, notifying them, receiving uplink audio data from both earphones, and controlling the timing of the audio data transmission to the UE based on reference points determined by synchronization points.

The method further involves utilizing synchronization points as downlink playback reference time points, determining reference points based on synchronization points and additional synchronization delays, processing audio data within specific time slots, and performing sampling time calibration on the audio data. The patent also covers scenarios where received audio data is unsuccessful, requiring conversion into emulated audio data. Additionally, the patent includes claims for the structure of the first earphone, the UE, and the DSP circuits within them, detailing their functions in processing and transmitting audio data.
