Sensory Releases New Biometric Chip
SANTA CLARA, CA - Sensory Inc., a supplier of embedded speech technologies, announced the release of its SVC-64 integrated circuit. The SVC-64 chip is a general purpose 8 bit microcontroller that can implement word-based speaker verification technology. "We have customers asking us to provide a lower cost solution for implementing voice passwords than our full featured RSC line of chips," said Todd Mozer, Sensory's CEO. "They want higher accuracy in noisy environments but at the lowest cost possible. The SVC64 achieves these goals and will allow us to penetrate new markets for embedded speech verification." Sensory expects products such as cell phones, PDA's, toys, portable computers, and other personal electronics devices to be utilized for the new SVC-64 offering. The SVC-64 IC will be available for sampling in Q4 2003. The SVC-64 is priced at under $1.25 in large volume die purchases.
