IoT referenceplatform med avanceret stemme- og sensorprocessering fra Quicklogic
QuickLogic's EOS S3 stemme- og sensorprocesseringsplatform er integreret i Infineons nye 'IAS' sikkerheds IoT referencedesign (in english).
QuickLogic Corporation, a developer of ultra-low power multi-core voice-enabled SoCs, embedded FPGA IP, and Endpoint AI solutions, today announced that Infineon has selected its EOS S3 Voice and Sensor Processing Platform to enable a new ultra-low power Integrated Alarm System (IAS) reference design utilizing the Infineon XENSIV MEMS microphone and digital barometric pressure sensor.
This design takes advantage of QuickLogic's integrated Low Power Sound Detection (LPSD) block, Sensor Manager and Flexible Fusion Engine (FFE) on the EOS S3 to significantly reduce the computation power consumption by a factor of ten. These blocks enable the ARM M4-F core in EOS S3 to be asleep for the majority of the time, only running Infineon's own sensor fusion based glass break algorithm when significant events occur.
The Infineon cutting edge sensor fusion software synchronizes the information from the microphone and pressure sensor to optimize the system's performance and reduce false alarms. Existing glass break alarm systems on the market can react to numerous sounds, pets or movie background noises for example. With the Infineon patent pending concept of combining audio with pressure information, Infineon's Alarm System only acts when a real event is detected, significantly reducing the number of false alarm calls.
The IAS reference design is targeted to customers in the home IoT space. The design can be integrated with a stand-alone product, or added to an existing home, commercial and industrial products such as light sockets, smoke detectors, motion sensors, and cameras to enable event detection such as an intruder breaking a window. A variety of well-known consumer product developers are currently adopting or investigating the IAS reference design solution for integration into their products.
- Infineon's reference design represents an excellent use case for the EOS S3 Voice and Sensor Processing Platform, says Scott Haylock, director of product management at QuickLogic Corporation.
- Through the use of our platform's integrated features such as LPSD and FFE, they are able to deliver a very sophisticated solution at the ultra-low levels of power consumption required by IoT battery-powered applications.
