“XMOS has the most comprehensive portfolio of far-field voice capture solutions,” says Mark Lippett, President and CEO at XMOS. “This launch builds on the success of our VocalFusion 4-Mic for Amazon AVS launched in October, and ensures that developers can easily integrate high performance voice interfaces into their products, with an architecture that enables innovative and very flexible deployments, and have a best-in-class kit to work with.”
As with all other XMOS far-field evaluation kits, voice commands are accurately captured from across the room for processing by a cloud-based speech recognition system or local application processor, even in complex acoustic environments. The XVF3100 voice processor delivers sophisticated voice digital signal processing (DSP) including a full duplex acoustic echo canceller (AEC) with barge-in capability that enables users to interrupt or pause a device that’s playing music, and an adaptive beamformer that follows a speaker. Additional sophisticated dereverberation, automatic gain control, and noise suppression provide crystal clear voice interaction experiences even in noisy environments.
The VocalFusion Speaker Linear evaluation kit (XK-VF3100-L33) is immediately available to developers, OEMs, and ODMs from Digi-Key. With support for Sensory’s TrulyHandsfree keyword trigger technology, and using Infineon MEMs microphones, the XVF3100 provides a flexible and cost effective always-on voice interface in a single device.
