– EOS S3 adds ultra-low power, always-on listening Alexa wake word functionality
– QuickLogic reference design enables quick integration
QuickLogic Corporation (NASDAQ: QUIK), a developer of ultra-low power programmable sensor processing, embedded FPGA IP, display bridge and programmable logic solutions, today announced that its EOS™ S3 voice and sensor processing platform has been integrated with the CSR8670 and CSR8675 Qualcomm® Bluetooth Audio system-on-chips (SoCs) to help deliver ultra-low power Alexa wake word support. QuickLogic developed this new solution using the software development kit made available by the Qualcomm® eXtension program.
Hearable and wearable Bluetooth device makers now have a quick and easy way to add end-to-end support for Alexa to their designs using the QuickLogic and Qualcomm solutions. The EOS S3 is the industry’s lowest power always-on and listening wake-word solution. QuickLogic’s new reference design enables customers to add full Alexa functionality with performance, cost and time-to-production advantages over competing solutions. In addition, battery powered solutions can benefit from the extremely low power consumption of the EOS S3 resulting in the longest possible battery life.
“We continue to see a high demand for adding Alexa voice command support to existing and new products,” said Brian Faith, QuickLogic’s president and CEO. “We are proud to collaborate with Qualcomm as their Bluetooth Audio SoCs are a popular solution for many customers building wireless audio products and now those same customers can easily add ultra-low power Alexa wake word support through our reference design.”<
