Tensilica and Sensory are partnering to bring Sensory's TrulyHandsfree Voice Control to Tensilica's leading HiFi Audio DSPs (digital signal processors ) for SOC (system-on-chip) designs. TrulyHandsfree Voice Control allows users to deliver commands from as far as 20 feet away or in high noise conditions, making it an ideal solution for controlling devices while multitasking or in the car where users need to focus on driving.
It provides a voice trigger capability on a local device that can communicate via the cloud to enable complex voice searches and text-to-speech for data retrieval. It allows Siri-like applications to not require a button press to use, which is more convenient in the car and throughout the home.
Tensilica's HiFi Audio DSPs support over 90 audio and voice codecs with very efficient processing at low power. The HiFi Audio DSPs are part of Tensilica's growing line of dataplane processors (DPUs) that efficiently do the challenging, compute-intensive tasks in SOC designs.
"Speech recognition for voice input and command is very important to Tensilica as it provides a greater ease-of-use for consumers in a wide range of products including mobile handsets, digital cameras and home entertainment devices. We're excited about this partnership with Sensory to bring a complete solution to our semiconductor and system OEM partners as Sensory has such a well-recognized solution for voice recognition," stated Jack Guedj, Tensilica's president and CEO.
