Edinburgh chip maker Wolfson Microelectronics has been awarded a contract with Sharp for its new range of Aquos smartphone and tablet devices.

The contract is to supply Sharp with a Wolfson WM5102 audio chip which is designed to reduce background noise and make calls clearer.

Last year Wolfson announced its first contract with Sharp and the Scottish firm said the latest deal builds on this existing partnership.

It also supplies Samsung and Lenovo.

Takahisa Yamada, vice president of sales and general manager of Wolfson Japan, said: "It is great news that Sharp has once again demonstrated its confidence in our unique audio technology."

He added: "Audio quality is fast becoming a key differentiating feature in mobile devices, and the WM5102 HD Audio Hub enables Sharp to deliver an outstanding consumer audio experience."
