CEVA And Sensory Partner To Deliver Lowest Power Voice Activation Solution Based On CEVA-TeakLite-4 DSP Platform

MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., Feb. 19, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- CEVA, Inc. (NASDAQ: CEVA), the leading licensor of silicon intellectual property (SIP) platform solutions and DSP cores, and Sensory, Inc., the leader in speech technologies for consumer products, today announced that the companies have partnered to offer an advanced voice recognition solution based on the industry-leading CEVA-TeakLite-4 DSP and Sensory's TrulyHandsfree™ always-on voice activation technology. The solution includes Sensory's innovative Low Power Speech Detector technology, which dramatically reduces power consumption for always-listening devices, and marks the first time this technology has been implemented on a DSP core.


Illustrating the inherent power benefits of deploying Sensory technology on the CEVA-TeakLite-4 DSP, Sensory's voice activation technology consumes less than 60uW on the DSP when implemented in a 28nm process, making it ideal for a wide range of power-sensitive applications, including smartphones, tablets, games, televisions, and automobiles. The companies will demonstrate Sensory's TrulyHandsfree Voice Control running on CEVA silicon at the upcoming Mobile World Congress in CEVA's booth (Stand 7i70).

"CEVA's audio and voice platforms are recognized for their leadership role in the handset industry, and by partnering with them to bring our TrulyHandsfree technology to the CEVA-TeakLite-4 DSP, we are able to deliver a highly efficient and easy-to-integrate solution for CEVA's broad customer base," said Bernard Brafman, vice president of business development at Sensory. "The user-friendly, advanced suite of software and hardware development tools allowed us to port and optimize our solution in record time, while the performance of the CEVA-TeakLite-4 platform also offers the ability to incorporate additional Sensory voice technologies, such as biometric speaker identification and text-to-speech."

Sensory's TrulyHandsfree™ Voice Control technology offers multiple phrase technology that recognizes, analyzes and responds to dozens of keywords. It consistently recognizes phrases even when embedded in sentences in a noisy environment. Traditional approaches to keyword spotting have failed in high noise and frequently false fire, but TrulyHandsfree™ shows unparalleled accuracy without false fires even in high noise and speech. The fully programmable CEVA-TeakLite-4 DSP provides processing power to implement such advanced algorithms, while leaving plenty of headroom to support other audio/voice related functions in software.
