3iLogic-Designs Introduces SimSim(TM), the World's First, Full-Featured, Embedded Speech Recognition IP Core, Enabling Voice-Activated User Interfaces for a Range of Consumer Devices

Semiconductor Manufacturers Can Now Offer Turn-Key, Full Featured, Embedded Speech Recognition Solutions to Consumer Device Manufacturers

FREMONT, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 02/11/14 -- Leading the innovation in embedded speech recognition technology, 3iLogic-Designs (www.3ilogic-designs.com) announced today its flagship solution, SimSim™. Semiconductor manufacturers can easily integrate this patent-pending, high-performance, ultra-low power, low cost embedded speech recognition IP core in their application processors, microcontrollers, ASICs, and FPGAs.

Voice is the natural and primary mode of communication amongst humans. The ability to communicate with machines through a natural interface, like voice, is an order of magnitude faster and easier than using a keyboard, mouse or even touch and gestures. Devices such as cell phones, tablets, digital cameras, wearable devices, smart TVs and remote controls, automobiles, and home appliances, enrich the user experience significantly by offering a hands-free, voice-activated user interface through speech recognition. Numerous announcements made by device manufacturers now offering voice activation on high-end devices, undeniably validates it as a key driver for success in the near future.

Speech recognition is a computationally intensive technology. Solutions available on the market today are software based and available only on high-end devices that have adequate resources. Software solutions require a large memory footprint and significant host processing power (most often an additional DSP or assistance through the cloud). These requirements lead to higher power consumption, increased latency, and cost, thus making embedded speech recognition very expensive and prohibitive for resource constrained low to mid-range devices.

3iLogic-Designs' SimSim™ IP core, eliminates these constraints by delivering high performance and ultra-low power, in an extremely small footprint without sacrificing features or accuracy. Localized processing removes dependency on cloud connectivity and provides very fast and deterministic response -- always, everywhere. In a 28nm LP process, voice activity detection requires only 100kHz for processing and consumes 5µW of power. Speech recognition for a 100 command vocabulary requires only 50MHz for processing and consumes 2.5mW of power.

"Voice-activated user interface for everyday consumer devices is clearly causing a disruption, just as touch did to the keyboard. SimSim is breaking new ground in the field of embedded speech recognition by enabling voice-activated user interfaces on consumer devices that current solutions simply do not allow without adding significant resources to the device," said Dhaval Ajmera, CEO of 3iLogic-Designs.

Key features of 3iLogic-Designs' SimSim™ IP core are:

  • High-performance, Ultra-low power, IP core for localized vocal user-interface
  • Synthesizable solution that easily integrates into microcontrollers, application processors, ASICs and FPGAs
  • Small silicon foot print (135K gates)
  • "Always On" capability that includes Voice Activity Detection (VAD) and Keyword spotting (with or without speaker verification)
  • Highly accurate, speaker independent recognition engine that requires no user training
  • Language independent architecture
  • Programmable keyword, dictionary, grammar
  • Simple to complex grammar design with Java Speech grammar support
  • Scalable vocabulary
  • 16/8 kHz audio support
  • Host processor agnostic and works with embedded or external system memories
  • Development tools and APIs provided

SimSim is available, as a technology license, to semiconductor companies as well as system companies designing their own semiconductor. In addition, SimSim ships with a full set of deliverables, support and training.
