New xCORE VocalFusion™ Speaker Linear evaluation kit addresses rapidly expanding “edge-of-room” segment
XMOS, a leading supplier of advanced embedded voice and audio interface solutions, today announced commercial availability of the xCORE VocalFusion Speaker Linear evaluation kit as part of its range of innovative far-field voice capture solutions. Based on the XMOS VocalFusion XVF3100 voice processor, the kit is designed for developers, OEMs and ODMs integrating voice user interfaces into flat, or linear consumer electronics typically found at the “edge of the room”, such as smart home control panels and washing machines.
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.
With support for Sensory’s TrulyHandsfree™ keyword trigger technology, the XVF3100 provides the most flexible and cost effective always-on voice interface in a single device. The VocalFusion Speaker Linear evaluation kit (XK-VF3100-L33) is immediately available to developers, OEMs, and ODMs from Digi-Key. For more information on this XMOS kit and XVF3100 devices visit www.xmos.com/vocalfusion. The evaluation kit uses Infineon MEMs microphones.
During CES XMOS will be at The Palazzo Hotel, Las Vegas, 9th -12th January 2018. It will showcase its existing VocalFusion 4-Mic kit for Amazon AVS, VocalFusion speaker with linear and circular arrays, far-field voice processing commercial deployments, and human machine interface developments.
