Human Machine Interface Coprocessors
Spansion® Acoustic Coprocessor is the industry’s first human machine interface (HMI) coprocessor that enables voice-controlled system interfaces. Leveraging Nuance Communications’ voice technology, the acoustic coprocessor is ideal for voice recognition systems in automotive, gaming and consumer electronics, significantly improving response time and accuracy over conventional voice interfaces by supporting larger acoustic databases. The first family of Spansion Acoustic Coprocessors comprises custom-designed logic and high-speed memory to accelerate and optimize voice-enabled human machine interfaces.
Spansion’s first implementation is in the automotive market where voice is providing a safer, smarter way to stay connected behind the wheel, minimizing visual-manual distractions posed by handheld devices. Spansion Acoustic Coprocessor leverages Spansion’s proven technology and leadership in enabling instant-on response, high reliability and performance across a range of embedded applications. Benchmark results demonstrate that with the Spansion Acoustic Coprocessor, system response improves by 50 percent over typical systems using an application processor alone. The load on the application processor lowers by up to 50 percent, freeing it for other tasks.
The Spansion demo platform, which integrates Spansion’s technology and Nuance voice recognition software, is currently being evaluated by major automotive manufacturers, with design samples available in the third quarter of this year.
