Analog voice-first evaluation kit serves battery-operated devices
ASPINITY EVK2 Voice-First Evaluation Kit is a complete hardware/software development kit that demonstrates firm’s ultra-low-power edge processing solution for analog voice activity detection and preroll. Kit enables users to easily integrate analog machine learning and analog data compression into battery-operated voice-enabled devices, such as hearables/wearables, smart speakers and smart TV remotes, facilitating significant power savings—without compromising system accuracy. Kit features the latest generation of firm’s Reconfigurable Analog Modular Processor (RAMP) chip, which introduces a new architectural approach to system design that improves battery life in edge devices.
The RAMP chip is also the first analog voice wake up solution to continuously collect and compress (into ~2kB of memory) the 500ms of sound prior to the wake word (preroll) that is required by most WWEs in order to accurately determine that a command has been spoken.
