Advanced Speech Technologies that include Sensory, Motor and Display Controls
The NLP-5x is designed to offer advanced speech recognition, text-to-speech (TTS), high quality music and speech synthesis and robotic control to cost-sensitive high volume products. Based on a 16-bit DSP, the NLP-5x integrates digital and analog processing blocks and a wide variety of communication interfaces into a single chip solution minimizing the need for external components.
The NLP-5x operates in tandem with FluentChip™ firmware - an ultra-compact suite of technologies that enables products with up to 750 seconds of compressed speech, natural language interface grammars, TTS synthesis, Truly Hands-Free™ triggers, multiple speaker dependent and independent vocabularies, high quality stereo music, speaker verification (voice password), robotics firmware and all application code built into the NLP-5x as a single chip solution.
The NLP-5x also represents unprecedented flexibility in application hardware designs. Thanks to the highly integrated architecture, the most cost-effective voice user interface (VUI) designs can be built with as few additional parts as a clock crystal, speaker, microphone, and few resistors and capacitors. The same integration provides all the necessary control functions on-chip to enable cost-effective man-machine interfaces (MMI) with sensing technologies, and complex robotic products with motors, displays and interactive intelligence.
