The advanced tablets are now in mass production with DBMD5 SmartVoice
SoC and HDClear™ algorithms.
SAN JOSE, Calif., Nov. 24, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — DSP Group, Inc. (NASDAQ: DSPG), a leading global provider of wireless and voice-processing solutions for smart devices, announced its collaboration with Lightcomm Technology for always-on voice control of tablets using its DBMD5 SmartVoice system-on-chip (SoC) and HDClear™ algorithms. The Android tablets are now in mass production and available from a major brand in the U.S.
Tablets are proliferating due to the trend toward remote work and learning as well as their increasingly advanced capabilities and connectivity. Fast and seamless access to those capabilities through low-power, reliable, always-on voice control is critical for a satisfying user experience.
“We are very excited to be working with Lightcomm Technology on the development of high-performance voice control to help users take full advantage of their tablet’s capabilities,” said Yosi Brosh, CVP, SmartVoice Product Line of DSP Group. “We were able to meet their strict requirements by demonstrating the responsiveness of our SmartVoice solution that is the culmination of 30 years of voice signal processing expertise.”
“The success of our tablet design ultimately depends upon how easily users can access and unlock its full potential, and the interface plays a critical role in this,” said Kevin Lee, VP of Marketing at Lightcomm Technology . “For our latest tablets, this translates to accurate, reliable, always-on voice detection and command response at minimal power consumption. This isn’t easy but DSP Group has a proven solution and worked with us to get it right.”
SmartVoice comprises a suite of high-performance, power-optimized processors and HDClear algorithms that maximize the performance of automatic speech recognition (ASR) engines. The algorithms perform noise suppression, acoustic echo cancellation (AEC), beamforming, barge-in, and other voice-processing features that ensure voice command detection and low-latency response. DSP Group recently announced it had shipped its 100 millionth SmartVoice SoC.
