IC Innovate is an engineering consultancy with strong expertise in digital chip design, DSP, and software, established in 2011 by David Hargreaves. From 2000 to 2004 he single-handedly developed the CSR Kalimba DSP processor along with all software for it (the very first single chip BT stereo headset running on BC3-MM). He then grew and led CSR’s R&D DSP Software and Processor group following the huge success of the BC3/5/7-MM chips. His hardware design and software is now in >250 million Bluetooth products. He holds a first class masters degree with distinction, from the University of Cambridge, and has 10 patents in the field of audio and processor design.


IC Innovate has a very efficient development cycle, and importantly a well proven track record.  Being a small company we’re easy to work with, flexible, and cost effective.

Please email me to discuss your project (info@icinnovate.com).

I look forward to working with you.

David Hargreaves
