The Nuance AI-powered wake-up and voice activation technology suite is available on the CEVA-TeakLite family of DSPs, the company says, allowing voice activation to be easily integrated into any embedded system design, from always-listening smartphones and IoT devices to smart home personal assistants.
"The combination of our ultra-low-power audio/voice DSP and Nuance's optimized voice activation technology makes for a highly efficient, always-on solution for the emerging voice-enabled market," says Moshe Sheier, director of strategic marketing at CEVA. "The benefits of voice-enabled smart devices are undoubted, and Nuance voice activation technology combined with CEVA-TeakLite is ideal for power-sensitive battery-operated devices such as smartphones, headsets and the IoT."
Kenneth Harper, vice president of emerging solutions at Nuance adds, "At Nuance, we're at the leading edge of the conversational AI revolution, making it possible for people and machines to communicate naturally and seamlessly. When it comes to low-power embedded systems, the CEVA-TeakLite DSPs offer incredibly low standby power consumption for our market-leading voice activation technology, and also the processing power to run additional voice algorithms for further differentiation."
The solution, says CEVA, will be debuted in Spring 2018. It is already being integrated by tier-one smartphone OEMs.
