Sensory and DSP Develop Voice Activation Solution for Portable Devices
DSP Group, a provider of wireless chipset solutions, and Sensory, a provider of speech technologies for consumer electronics, announced the joint development of a voice activation solution for smartphones and wearable devices based on DSP Group's ultra–low power DBMD2 and Sensory's TrulyHandsfree Voice Control 3.0 solution.
DSP Group and Sensory have implemented Sensory's TrulyHandsfree on DSP Group's DBMD2 platform. DBMD2 also features DSP Group's HDClear noise reduction and Automatic Speech Recognition (ASR) boosting technologies, making it ideal for consumer electronic devices such as smartphones, tablets, laptops, and wearable computing devices.
DBMD2 is DSP Group's high-performance, low-power, audio/voice DSP chip. DBMD2 offers a programmable, 32-bit DSP audiocentric processing solution and is packaged in a 3.0 x 3.0mm UFBGA. An open platform, DBMD2 enables seamless integration of third-party solutions like Sensory's TrulyHandsfree, as well as other pre-and post-processing technologies.
"Sensory's voice activation and control truly complement our technology, which maximizes ASR accuracy and noise reduction, creating tremendous value for our mobile device customers," said Raz Kivelevich-Carmi, director of the HDClear product line at DSP Group, in a statement.
