The Knowles AISonic™ Audio Edge Processor IA8201 is a high-performance, ultra-low power audio-centric
OpenDSP supporting up to 4 mics, multiple high speed interfaces and GPIOs in two package options
(eWLB and QFN). IA8201 Enables wake-on-voice processing for low latency voice UI, noise reduction, context awareness, accelerated machine learning and TensorFlow applications, edge processing of sensor inputs.
The IA8201 is a fully customizable, multi-core audio processing platform with a Digital Signal Processor (DSP) Software Development Kit (SDK) leveraging Knowles Intelligent Audio’s expertise in audio transducers, acoustics, DSP, and algorithm development.
The Knowles AISonic™ SmartMic Headset Development Kit for Amazon AVS is low power and enables wake-on-voice, eliminating the need for push-to-activate. The Kit includes the Knowles SmartMic with the wake word engine tuned to Alexa and the Bestechnic BES2000i Bluetooth SoC with Alexa Mobile Accessory (AMA) profile driver.
The Bluetooth Headset IA610 Integration Kit is a reference design based on the Knowles IA610 SmartMic for Bluetooth headset applications. The Kit enables ultra-low-power voice keyword and command detection for rapid Voice UI development. It is designed to work with either a CSR8670 or CSR8675 development board.
The IoT and Home Automation IA611 Xplained Pro Development Kit accelerates prototyping the Knowles IA611 Smart Mic into ultra-low-power IoT and home automation applications. The Kit supports voice keyword and command detection for rapid Voice UI development and is based on the Microchip SAM D21 Xplained Pro MCU platform.
The SmartMic IA611 Development Platform provides a complete hardware, software, and firmware package for developing DSP algorithms on the Knowles IA611 Smart Mic. The Platform enables rapid deployment of third party algorithms onto the IA611 for ultra-low-power IoT, mobile, ear-worn, smart speaker, and home automation applications.
Franklin-2 is for equipment (OEMs) and design manufacturers (ODMs) who want to prototype with ear buds that are easy to evaluate, demonstrate, and integrate the quality and expertise of Knowles Acoustics. With a Hybrid design that can be tuned to the Knowles Preferred Listening Curve, you’ll find the Balanced Armature and dynamic driver work together to provide a premium sound experience.
