Conexant Systems Inc. Key Developments

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.

Conexant AudioSmart Voice and Speech Processing Software Now Optimized for Cadence Tensilica HiFi DSPs

Cadence Design Systems Inc. and Conexant Systems Inc. announced that Conexant's AudioSmart software has been optimized for the Cadence Tensilica HiFi digital signal processor (DSP) family. Conexant's AudioSmart software provides clear voice quality, eliminates noise from the microphone input signal during VoIP calls, and dramatically improves automatic speech recognition (ASR) system performance. The result is a superior audio experience for the end user, with excellent listening performance and voice quality in noisy, real-world conditions. Conexant's AudioSmart software is based on its proprietary Smart Source Pickup (SSP) noise suppression algorithm. Unlike traditional technologies, such as beamforming, SSP is a blind source separation technology that uses spatial representation of target speech and noise sources to reduce interference. With SSP, speech and noise can arrive at any angle relative to the microphones; SSP even reduces noise when it comes from the same direction as desired speech, and when the speaker is up to five meters away from the target device. Additionally, AudioSmart allows users to experience excellent voice quality independent of device orientation or the user's position (angle) relative to the device.

Conexant Unveils Linux-Based Far-Field Voice Processing Software Solution

Conexant Systems Inc. has announced the availability of its Linux-based far-field voice processing software solution. Conexant's Linux software solution enables voice control and communication in smart home products that employ a Linux operating system - including voice-controlled speaker systems, white goods and whole-home control systems. Conexant's software solution includes noise suppression for highly-accurate speech recognition performance in noisy, distant speaker or far-field conditions - from up to five meters away. In addition, a high-performance, full-duplex Acoustic Echo Canceller enables users to control devices with their voice, even when the device's speaker is playing loudly, as is the case with voice-controlled speakers, Smart TVs, set-top boxes or appliances with prompts.
