Demos will showcase iONE Innovation’s breakthrough advancements in gaming and audio peripherals powered by SPARK Ultra-Wideband (UWB) wireless technology

Montreal, Canada, January 4, 2024 – SPARK Microsystems, a Canadian fabless semiconductor company specializing in next-generation short-range wireless communications, is partnering with iONE Innovation to demonstrate the future of high-performance wireless gaming and audio peripherals at CES 2024.

Leveraging SPARK Ultra-Wideband (UWB) technology to deliver superior gameplay responsiveness, iONE Innovation’snext generation iONE mouse, keyboard, and audio headset combine the freedom of wireless connectivity with the performance attributes of wired gaming and audio devices for gamers seeking the utmost competitive advantage and entertainment experience.

SPARK UWB breaks the performance barrier for wireless gaming peripherals by delivering polling rate performance up to 8,000 Hz, and 0.15 ms latency data transfer that is as important as the polling rate.  In the gaming arena, this ensures that players stay perfectly in sync with the on-screen action for faster responsiveness and superior gaming performance. It also allows for rich sensor data to be transferred from the mouse in real time without affecting the fidelity of the data, unlike other wireless technologies. SPARK UWB sidesteps the signal congestion and interference issues common to Bluetooth and proprietary 2.4 GHz connectivity and features an extremely low power profile to help ensure long uptime between device charges for uninterrupted gameplay. 

Leveraging SPARK UWB Audio technology to deliver pristine, lossless audio, iONE Innovation’s next generation A12 ultra-low latency audio headsets combine the convenience of wireless with the unparalleled audio quality and low latency advantages of wired connectivity. SPARK’s groundbreaking UWB Audio technology provides exceptionally low latency of just 5 ms to ensure precise audio-video synchronization, complemented with the ability to deliver uncompressed audio data. Unlike traditional Bluetooth headsets, SPARK UWB Audio technology supports high data throughput, enabling the transmission of lossless audio that’s uncompromised by compression or degradation. 

“At iONE, we study how our customers use their digital devices, and our designers and engineers strive to help create a better experience with those devices,” said Mr. Charles Chen, CEO, iONE Innovation. “The new iONE gaming and audio peripherals we’ve innovated with SPARK UWB technology exemplify this spirit – we’re helping gamers achieve a new level of wireless gaming and audio performance, surpassing the capabilities of legacy technology.” 

“SPARK is proud to showcase our innovations at CES 2024 alongside iONE Innovation, a respected industry leader in high-performance gaming and audio hardware design,” said Raphael Mehrbians, CMO, SPARK Microsystems. “By harnessing SPARK UWB technology in its next generation designs, iONE Innovation is equipping gamers to achieve new levels of gameplay performance and an unparalleled soundstage.”

CES 2024 attendees are invited to visit SPARK’s exclusive Palazzo Suite to preview iONE Innovation’s next generation mouse, keyboard and headset featuring SPARK UWB wireless technology. For more information or to schedule a private demo session in advance, contact spark@rainierco.com.
