- Production-ready solution qualified by the Alexa Voice Service (AVS) for a broad range of embedded
Internet-of-Things(IoT) edge applications
- Low latency, far-field “wake word” detection, enhanced with noise suppression, echo cancellation and barge-in capabilities, for acoustically difficult environments
- Based on NXP’s i.MX RT crossover microcontroller (MCU) platform - drastically reducing cost of integrating Alexa without the need for a costly microprocessor, DSP, DRAM, PMIC, or high-layer count board
- Targets a wide range of cost-sensitive applications including smart homes, smart buildings, smart appliances and industrial use cases.
Built on an NXP i.MX RT crossover platform, this MCU-based AVS solution enables low latency, far-field, “wake word” detection; embeds all necessary digital signal processing capabilities; runs on Amazon FreeRTOS; and includes an Alexa client application. It is a cost-effective, easy-to-use solution and can be embedded in a diverse range of products across home, commercial and industrial spaces, eliminating the need to deploy standalone voice control devices such as smart speakers or smart displays.
“NXP’s production-ready solution is a time-and-cost-effective way for OEMs to build Alexa into their products,” said
NXP’s i.MX RT MCU-based AVS solution provides OEMs with a self-contained, turnkey offering that enables them to quickly add Alexa to their products. It includes the MCU, a smart audio amplifier with speaker protection, and comes with fully integrated software. It also features noise suppression, echo cancellation, beam forming and barge-in capabilities that enable use in acoustically difficult environments.
With a total system cost at less than half of microprocessor-based alternatives, this solution is based on the newest member of NXP’s i.MX RT crossover platform, the i.MX RT106A. Additionally, the solution includes the TFA9894D smart audio amplifier, and optional A71CH secure element, and is already embraced by OEMs developing a diverse range of industrial and consumer products.
“Leviton is excited about NXP’s introduction of its i.MX RT MCU-based AVS solution, which will significantly enhance consumers’ smart home experiences,”
NXP is now engaging with OEM customers to provide early access to an evaluation and development kit implementation of this solution. Broad market availability for the solution is expected to begin later in the year. NXP is demonstrating this solution during Embedded World in Nuremberg,
To help accelerate customer’s time to market and to achieve the best possible Alexa Built-in integration, NXP now offers at its Mougins, Sophia-Antipolis facilities a product testing service for Alexa Built-in products, available to its customers desiring to test their devices before submitting to
