Conexant Systems Inc. Key Developments

LeTV Selects Conexant Systems, Inc.'s CX2092x SoC for Super TV 3 Family

Conexant Systems Inc. has announced that LeTV has adopted the company's far-field voice input processor system-on-chip, or SoC, the CX2092x, for its new Super TV 3 family of smart TVs including the Ultra 3 X50, X55, X55 Pro and Max65. The company recognizes that voice is a natural extension of the user interface, and has designed the CX2092x to give users the ability to use their voice to control their TVs. Conexant's AudioSmart technology makes voice control possible even in noisy, far-field conditions of up to five meters away and at any angle relative to the microphone. Conexant has developed the industry's best far-field voice processing solution and is the only company that can provide features such as advanced control and search, 'always-listening' mode in an ultra low-power state and echo cancellation that allows users to talk to the TV while it is on, from anywhere in the room.

Conexant Systems, Inc. Appoints Kurt Hoff as Senior Vice President of Worldwide Sales

Conexant Systems Inc. has appointed Kurt Hoff as senior vice president of worldwide sales. Hoff joins Conexant from Silicon Labs, where he was senior vice president of worldwide sales. Hoff replaces Ahmed Nawaz, who is retiring after three years of exceptional leadership as he assisted in the transformation of Conexant into an audio and imaging leader. Hoff was attracted to Conexant because of the company's momentum in audio and imaging and the exciting potential for its AudioSmart technology. In this role, Hoff will further establish Conexant's leadership position in the audio and imaging markets. He will focus on developing and nurturing key customer relationships while overseeing Conexant's global sales organization. With more than 25 years of experience managing sales and operations for technology companies, Hoff will play a key role as Conexant continues to expand its presence globally and respond to the large demand for its solutions. At Silicon Labs, Hoff spent eight years leading the company's global sales team in EMEA and the Asia Pacific region including China, Korea, Japan and Taiwan.

Conexant Systems, Inc. Expands Asia Pacific AudioSmart Business

Conexant Systems Inc. expanded its Asia Pacific AudioSmart business by moving into a new facility located in Neihu Technology Park in Taipei, Taiwan. With this new location, Conexant will provide greater localized support and cutting-edge facilities to serve customers in Taiwan. The Taipei facility joins Conexant offices in China, Korea, Japan, and Singapore. In addition to accommodating a larger staff, the new 1,500 square meter (approximately 16,000 square feet) facility includes anechoic and EMI acoustic tuning chambers, an ETSI test room and head acoustic equipment. This allows Conexant to provide the same advanced acoustic design, tuning and verification services for Taiwanese customers as is offered from the company's headquarters in California without requiring systems to be physically shipped around the globe or having to navigate time differences between regions. The new Taipei office also includes the ability to perform the iterative testing necessary for Microsoft Skype for Business, Cortana and Intel Automated Speech Recognition certifications. Finally, a new demo room enables Conexant to showcase its full line of AudioSmart products to customers and partners in the region. Saleel Awsare, Conexant vice president and general manager, attributes the new office location in Taipei to the company's continued growth in the region.
