QuickLogic and Rubidium Partner on Voice User Interface Solution at the Edge
QuickLogic has partnered with Rubidium, a provider of voice recognition, always-on voice trigger, and text-to-speech software, to provide a complete voice recognition solution based on QuickLogic's EOS S3 voice and sensor processing software on a chip platform combined with Rubidium's Voice User Interface (VUI) software.
With the combined solution, QuickLogic and Rubidium allow developers to add embedded voice interface capabilities to their end products. The voice recognition and keyword wake-up capabilities consume low computational resources and very little power and are highly responsive and reliable even in noisy and far-field conditions
This approach features a single-chip solution to enable voice recognition in a wide variety of applications, including sports products, wearables, hearables, industrial control, and smart home appliances. Its multilingual capabilities enable it to work in any target language.
"QuickLogic's EOS S3 platform provides a robust, yet very low-power single-chip solution, making it easy for product developers to optimize their designs for recognition accuracy and power consumption," said Shlomo Peller, CEO of Rubidium, in a statement. "Optimizing our high-accuracy voice interface for the EOS S3 introduces a combined, self-contained solution that addresses the most demanding embedded voice interface functions."
"Rubidium is well known for its voice recognition software, which is widely used in the industry for a broad range of applications," said Brian Faith, QuickLogic's president and CEO, in a statement. "By combining Rubidium's robust software with our highly integrated EOS S3 platform, developers can enjoy a simple and smooth development cycle, enabling fast time to market along with a high-quality, high-reliability, and low-power solution."
Developers who wish to implement the combined solution can select among multiple development board options, including QuickLogic's new Qomu and QuickFeather development kits.
