Conexant Systems, Inc. Introduces Audiosmart CX20926, its New Low-Power, Audio/Sensor System-On-Chip

Conexant Systems Inc. has introduced the AudioSmart CX20926, its new low-power, audio/sensor system-on-chip, or SoC, which is designed to allow voice control in battery-powered devices. Designed with an integrated ARM Cortex-M0+ 32-bit microprocessor, the new lowpower, energy-efficient CX20926 features direct sensor interfaces and Conexant's, high-performance, dual-core 32-bit audio DSP. Optimized for a wide range of voiceenabled, battery-powered applications that include smart voice remote controls, wearables and headsets, the CX20926 enables reduced footprint and lower BOM costs. With consumers relying on battery-powered devices for so many of their everyday tasks, battery drain is a real concern. The use of voice as a means of control requires that these devices are constantly listening for commands and waking up quickly to answer. All of this can put a serious strain on batteries, making reduced power consumption a necessity. With the CX20926, devices are always listening for a wake-up voice command - while the rest of the device is powered off. The CX20926 executes this in an ultra low-power state, saving battery resources. In addition to unparalleled low-power voice wake-up capabilities, Conexant has leveraged its unique Smart Source Pickup (SSP) noise suppression algorithm to make the CX20926 even more powerful. Conexant's SSP makes it possible to cut through noise such as playback from the device's speaker and environmental noise, and allows users to be at any angle relative to the product's microphones and still receive clear voice communication and commands. Further, with an ARM M0+ sensor processor, and a direct interface to sensors, the CX20926 is an optimized audio/sensor hub that can combine contextual information from motion sensors with audio information from microphones to provide a compelling audio and voice experience The features of CX20926 includes ARM Cortex-M0+ microprocessor, up to 50MHz operation; Conexant's dual-core, 32-bit hardware fixed point DSP, up to 100MHz operation; two stereo PDM digital microphone interfaces; and, I2C sensor interfaces. The AudioSmart CX20926 is available in a 50-QFN package. EVKs will be available to qualified customers and partners in first quarter 2016, with budgetary pricing beginning at $3.49 in 10K quantities.
