Conexant Systems Inc. Key Developments

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.

Conexant Systems Inc. Introduces Smart Voice Pickup Software Algorithm for Headsets

Conexant Systems Inc. announced that it will unveil its new Smart Voice Pickup (SVP) technology for headsets. The newest addition to Conexant's AudioSmart's software solutions, Conexant's SVP provides optimum transmit microphone voice quality for headset users and reduces ambient noise to optimize the real-time voice communication experience. Conexant's SVP technology utilizes two microphones to detect and suppress stationary noise sources, such as white noise or air conditioning, and non-stationary noise like a slamming door or loud clapping. The first microphone is close to the users mouth as the primary voice transmit microphone, while the second microphone is an environmental microphone. SVP is also extremely effective at reducing keystroke noise distractions during conference calls and other computer-based voice communications.

Conexant Systems Inc. Announces Launch of AudioSmart Software

Conexant Systems Inc. has announced the launch of AudioSmart software, its new Smart Source Pickup, or SSP, voice and speech processing software for PCs and tablets. Designed to work with any hardware CODEC, Conexant's stand-alone AudioSmart software provides clear voice quality, eliminates noise from the microphone input signal during VoIP calls and dramatically improves Automatic Speech Recognition system performance. From conducting a call via Skype at a noisy cafe to giving verbal commands to tablet in an airport terminal, Conexant's AudioSmart software enables a better user experience and makes challenges with background noise and competing sounds, like keystroke noise, a thing of the past. Conexant's AudioSmart software is based on its proprietary SSP noise suppression algorithm. SSP is a blind source separation technology that uses spatial representation of target speech and noise sources to reduce interference. Unlike competing technologies, speech and noise can arrive at any angle relative to the microphones; SSP even removes 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. SSP is also extremely effective at reducing keystroke noise distractions during conference calls and other computer-based voice communications.
