NXP Semiconductors is at the forefront of voice control trends with the launch of its industry-leading MCU-based solution for far-field voice control and command recognition. The cost optimized, easy-to-use solution addresses demand for embedded, ubiquitous voice control in a broad range of smart home, commercial and industrial markets, while eliminating the need to connect to a cloud-based voice service to help preserve users’ privacy.
Integrated machine-learning-based automatic commands recognition (ACR) technology is achieved locally on the device in partnership with Snips, a pioneer in embedded voice recognition software for businesses, products and services. The solution is built on NXP’s i.MX RT106L crossover MCU running FreeRTOS, enabling low latency detection of local commands and wake word(s). The solution also embeds necessary digital signal processing capabilities for far-field operation.
Out of the box, the i.MX RT106L MCU-based solution includes a wake word and four sets of example local commands, enabling developers to quickly create proof of concepts (PoC) to demonstrate and evaluate the addition of voice control to their products. Following successful PoC, OEMs can work directly with NXP to generate models specific to their application.
