The new technology was introduced at the Amazon Alexa Summit hosted by Libre Wireless. According to the company, in addition to bringing great value to existing voice-enabled products, this platform will enable OEMs and ODMs to create entirely new applications previously not yet realizable, including very small battery powered, portable and wearable products for next generation voice interface products.
Libre Wireless is known for their industry leading LibreSync wireless mic-to-cloud voice and media streaming platform solutions, and now takes their solutions to an entirely new level. The new “MAVID” platform will deliver a range of miniature “Multiprotocol Audio & Voice IoT Devices” that deliver turn-key, or fully customizable, end-to-end solutions all integrated into a single device, with the first MAVID device measuring only 13.5mm x 13.5mm.
This unique and fully integrated miniaturized hardware/software platform provides performance optimization and wireless coexistence management for a wide range of features, including extensive host MCU features, 802.11ac dual band WiFi, BT4.1, BT audio streaming, BlueTooth Low Energy, far field voice processing interface including Automatic Echo Cancellation/Beam Forming/Wake Word recognition, Wake-on-voice features along with integrated and embedded memory. MAVID also offers options for adding Zigbee, Thread, LoRa, DECT/ULE and LTE connectivity for broader interoperability and multiprotocol applications.
This extensive hardware integration is driven by a comprehensive multiprotocol connectivity, far field voice, Alexa voice services and media streaming application SDK, all running on a very fast and power efficient Real-Time Operating System. The MAVID platform also offers scalable device options and software features that enable cost/feature optimized solutions for a myriad of new voice enabled IoT applications, many of which were not realizable until now.
“Voice interface and control is experiencing rapid growth and fast becoming a primary interface for man to machine applications in virtually every market segment,” says Hooman Kashef, Chief Executive Officer of Libre Wireless Technologies. “We are very honored and proud to be working with the Amazon Alexa Voice Service, and we look forward to continuing to deliver innovative and best-in-class solutions that are cost-effective and compact and provide industry-leading low power, multiprotocol and multi-function features.”
