i.MX RT106A Solution for Alexa Voice Service (AVS)

NXP's i.MX RT106A is the world’s first Cloud-based voice assistant on a MCU

Image of NXP's i.MX RT106A Solution for Alexa Voice Service (AVS)NXP’s MCU-based AVS solution provides OEMs with a fully integrated, self-contained, software and hardware solution that includes both the MCU and a smart audio amplifier with speaker protection. The i.MX RT106A solution for AVS enable system designers to easily and inexpensively add voice control capabilities to a wide variety of smart appliances, smart home, smart retail, and smart industry applications.

The i.MX RT106A solution comes with all far-field audio processing algorithms, including noise suppression, echo cancellation, beamforming, and barge-in capabilities, to enable use in acoustically challenging environments. Also included are the Amazon Alexa client application and a machine learning inference engine for Alexa wake word identification. This cost-effective, easy to use AVS implementation facilitates the demand for ubiquitous voice control embedded in a diverse variety of products across home, commercial, and industrial applications. It eliminates the need to deploy dedicated stand-alone voice control devices, such as smart speakers or smart displays.

Based on the i.MX RT1060 family of crossover processors operating at speeds up to 600 MHz, the AVS solution delivers high CPU performance and advanced real-time response. The i.MX RT106A comes with a pre-integrated, fully certified Amazon voice assistant software solution.
