Collaboration Brings AI for IoT to Smart Homes

Infineon Technologies has announced the company has collaborated with Picovoice to jointly develop an end-to-end voice platform that brings voice AI to edge devices. This collaboration enables smart voice solutions in ultra-low power IoT devices using Infineon’s PSoC 6 microcontrollers (MCUs), says Infineon. This gives designers an alternative approach to evaluating and deploying wake-phase and intent recognition on the company’s PSoC 6 products. Infineon says the joint effort opens up new possibilities with on-device AI-enabled voice technology for the smart home and wearable applications using energy efficient PSoC 6 MCUs with comprehensive IoT connectivity support.

The Picovoice platform creates an accurate and private voice interface that is now easily used with existing Infineon PSoC 6 solutions including seamless pairing with AIROC Wi-Fi, low power CapSense touch interface and cloud connectivity. Included in this platform is Infineon’s XENSIV MEMS microphones with what the company claims industry’s highest SNR, wide dynamic range, low distortions and high acoustic overload point are included in this platform.

Collaborating with Picovoice expands Infineon’s machine learning and AI ecosystem by allowing system developers using PSoC 6 the option to add a new voice feature for innovative IoT applications. Developers can now use a PSoC 6 Pioneer Development Kit and the IoT Sense Expansion Shield with an option to sign-up for a free Picovoice trial account. Additionally, they can run code examples using Infineon’s proven ModusToolbox to bring differentiated smart home and wearable applications to market.

Picovoice is the end-to-end platform that empowers organizations to build voice interfaces and process voice data by leveraging neural networks. Thanks to its superior technology, Picovoice offers private, offline, and efficient solutions. Picovoice-enabled products run on microcontrollers, mobile, desktop, and modern web browsers.

The Infineon PSoC 62S2 Wi-Fi BT Pioneer Kit and the IoT Sense Expansion Shield are available now. The kit includes a PSoC 62 150-MHz Arm Cortex-M4 and 100-MHz Arm Cortex-M0+ cores, 2 MB of Flash, 1 MB of SRAM, the Murata Type 1LV module, that provides IEEE 802.11a/b/g/n-compliant, IEEE 802.11 ac-friendly Wi-Fi with integrated Bluetooth 5.0, the Infineon XENSIV MEMS microphones and several other sensors.
