Conexant’s four-microphone voice pickup reference design for smart speakers with embedded voice pre-processing technology opens up a whole new world of voice enabled capabilities for devices. Conexant’s 4 mic system and speech processing technology allow devices to overcome extreme noise and distance challenges, with fewer microphones than the current state-of-the-art.

Conexant AudioSmart® Enables Voice Barge-In on Devices
Conexant’s AudioSmart® technology can be used to enable a superior far-field, voice-enabled user experience by filtering out background noise and focusing in on what the user is saying, and can be used to enable voice barge-in on voice-enabled devices.
In this demo, we compare a factory-spec iPhone 6s and factory-spec Samsung Galaxy S6 to a modified Nexus 5 running Conexant AudioSmart® software. The AudioSmart® equipped Nexus 5 provides superior far-field speech recognition performance compared to the competing devices, and enables always-listening voice control functionality even when sound is emitting from the device’s speakers (barge-in).
