Discover the capabilities of voice solutions


In this short video Mark Lippett (President & CEO) and Paul Neil (VP of Marketing & Business Development) explain why voice is so important as a way to interact with machines, and discuss the challenges faced to make voice interfaces ubiquitous across our home, office and leisure lives.


Making voice ubiquitous

XMOS voice interfaces connect to automatic speech recognition (ASR) systems running remotely on Cloud servers or locally on an application processor. The captured signal allows an ASR to respond to a question or instruction in a natural and conversational way.

XMOS voice interface solutions include:

  • capture from PDM microphone arrays with different topologies and best possible signal-to-noise ratio
  • near-field and far-field voice capture from the device so consumers can move around a room
  • voice isolation in noisy environments using echo cancellation and de-reverb to remove ambient noise
  • keyword recognition regardless of other television or audio system output
  • integration with cloud-based systems or local application processor
  • flexible local system control and user interface integration
