Voice on Arm

Voice control technology has been used in various applications for many years. The latest progress in Natural Language Understanding (NLU) and its application to voice assistants has positioned voice recognition as a key technology differentiator, especially for user interfaces in consumer products.

An effective voice interface solution requires efficient audio capture and rendering solutions to enable high-quality user experience. Selecting the appropriate voice solution requires a good understanding of the system and computing requirements. The implementation also requires a good understanding of the application constraints from cost to power figures.

Read the white paper to explore the different technology aspects that must be understood and analyzed to achieve a suitable system architecture definition for low-power, low-cost voice enabled devices.
