CEVA's Audio Front-End Software Becomes Alexa Voice Service (AVS) Qualified
CEVA's audio front end software has become Alexa Voice Service (AVS) qualified. The solution, which combines CEVA's ClearVox far-field noise reduction and voice processing software with WhisPro voice user interface neural network-based keyword spotting software, is ready for integration with AVS-enabled devices, such as smart speakers, soundbars, and more.
AVS is Amazon's cloud-based service that allows device makers to integrate Alexa features and functions into compatible devices. By garnering an AVS qualification for its audio front-end software , CEVA's customers can use this software to seamlessly add Alexa-enabled services to their target devices.
"Becoming AVS-qualified is powerful for any audio front-end software solution, and we are proud to have achieved this milestone for our ClearVox far-field and WhisPro software. AVS unlocks an incredible amount of functionality and experiences for smart devices, and we look forward to seeing how our software brings Alexa to a new generation of consumer, industrial, and IoT devices," Chad Lucien, vice president and general manager of the sensors and audio business unit at CEVA, said in a statement.
