CSR Releases RoadRunner
CAMBRIDGE, England - CSR plc (LSE:CSR) launched the CSR RoadRunner Plug-n-Talk, the first in a series of ready engineered and interoperable automotive solutions from CSR that provides OEMs and ODMs with a package from which to create a Bluetooth hands-free kit.
The RoadRunner Plug-n-Talk system features a hardware reference design, Bluetooth stack, profile suite, hands-free application software, and CSR's Clear Voice Capture (CVC) software. The addition of CVC to the design combines echo and noise suppression algorithms which allow the speaker's voice to be extracted and transmitted to the caller at the other end of the line. In addition, it includes a demonstration of text-to-speech software from NowSpeak which has been developed specifically for CSR's BlueCore-Multimedia technology.
With additional features such as the NowSpeak Mobile text-to-speech software, more hands-free functionality can be designed in with features such as caller ID confirmation and voice prompts during hands-free operation. Furthermore, by using the configuration tool supplied, designers can change the Flash parameters and modify elements like the MMI, call handling, PIO assignment to buttons, and ring tones.
