The collaboration uses Infineon’s PSoC 6 microcontrollers (MCUs) to implement wake-up phrases and work out what users are asking at the edge of the Internet of Things (IoT) to keep power consumption low.

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 WiFi, low power CapSense touch interface and cloud connectivity. The platform also includes Infineon’s XENSIV MEMS microphones with high SNR, wide dynamic range, low distortions and high acoustic overload point to improve the quality of the captured voice data.

The deal means 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 ModusToolbox to bring smart home and wearable applications to market.

“We are focused on providing developers with a system solutions-based approach for intelligent edge devices,” said Steven Tateosian, Vice President, IoT, Compute and Wireless Business Unit at Infineon. “Working with Picovoice offers system designers using PSoC 6 unique features and capabilities to help differentiate their next-generation products. We are excited to team up with Picovoice to bring local voice AI to IoT applications in the smart home and wearables within our proven ModusToolbox software and tools platform.”

“We have a unique on-device speech recognition technology that requires minimal resources and works well even on microcontrollers,” said Alireza Kenarsari-Anhari, CEO of Picovoice.

The Infineon PSoC 62S2 Wi-Fi BT Pioneer Kit and the IoT Sense Expansion Shield are available now. The kit includes a PSoC 62 150MHz Arm Cortex-M4 and 100MHz Arm Cortex-M0+ cores and 2 MB of Flash, 1 MB of SRAM with 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 as well as the XENSIV MEMS microphones and several other sensors.;
