NXP’s Voice Intelligent Technology and new training tools reduces barriers to entry for fast, low-cost on-device voice control applications
NXP® Semiconductors has announced Voice Intelligent Technology (VIT), the industry’s first fully comprehensive, local voice control software package with online training tools free for customers, regardless of end application production volumes. Based on advanced deep learning, VIT is a ready-to-use library that provides a far-field audio front end supporting up to three microphones, an always-on wake word engine, and a voice command engine. NXP’s free online tools enable customers to define a wake word and voice commands themselves, using simple text entry and without the need for voice recordings.
Why It Matters
Implementing reliable, on-device voice control can be extremely challenging. Developers not only need to select the appropriate hardware, but also must navigate complicated speech processing software. This frequently requires managing an audio front-end beamformer, as well as a separate wake-word and voice command engine, often from separate software vendors. VIT streamlines development by providing a comprehensive, flexible software solution that can be customized for specific applications and incorporates all the elements needed to create a highly accurate, on-device voice control solution.
“Voice is the interface of choice for many smart technologies, including those in smart homes, smart cities and smart factories. By reducing the complexity of voice application development, we’ve made it easier and faster to bring new, on-device voice control to market.”
Joe Yu, Vice President and General Manager, IoT Edge Processing Product Line, NXP
The VIT library is delivered as a ready-to-use library in the MCUXpresso SDK and the online training tool is available at vit.nxp.com. For more information, visit here.
