SAN JOSE, Calif., Sept. 11, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- QuickLogic
Corporation (NASDAQ: QUIK), a developer of ultra-low power
multi-core voice-enabled SoCs, embedded FPGA IP, and endpoint AI
solutions, today announced that it is partnering with Nuance
Communications, Inc. – a leading provider of conversational AI and
ambient intelligence solutions – to deliver ultra-low power wake
word and voice command technology for a wide array of
power-sensitive applications, including hearable and wearable
devices. Nuance's technology is a well-known, proven, and highly
reliable voice recognition solution, enabling QuickLogic's
customers to get to market quickly with products they know will
provide high accuracy even in noisy environments.
The partnership between QuickLogic and Nuance enables QuickLogic
to distribute always-on, ultra-low footprint, ultra-low power voice
recognition technology integrated with its EOS™ S3 Voice and Sensor
Processing Platform to give customers an end-to-end and highly
reliable hardware and software voice recognition solution. The
Nuance technology provides the performance and ultra-low power
consumption required for always-on wake word detection, and
specifically supports the Alexa wake word protocol. It also
features a variety of technical enhancements to improve voice
recognition accuracy in difficult or noisy environments.
The integrated system supports a wide range of features
including always-on, always-listening fixed triggers, user defined
triggers and phrases, and commands that can be accurately detected
in silent to extremely noisy environments.
"Nuance has been delivering speech recognition solutions for
mobile devices for over two decades," said Scott Haylock, director of product marketing at
QuickLogic Corporation. "In response to customer demand, and the
growing hearables market, we've augmented the EOS S3 OPEN Software
Platform to include Nuance's technology. This addition helps
QuickLogic address the largest possible product mix of new and
existing voice-controlled end-products."
The ultra-low power Nuance voice recognition technology has been
integrated with QuickLogic's advanced EOS Voice and Sensor
Processing SoC, which incorporates a revolutionary architecture
that enables the industry's most advanced and compute intensive
sensor processing capability at a fraction of the power consumption
of competing technologies.
The EOS S3 platform with integrated
Nuance voice processing is available now. For more information,
