Engineering samples of the ultra-low power AON1100 â¢ chip and development kit now available
The AON1100 edge AI processor is the industry’s first and only ultra-low power multimodal solution that enables simultaneous and highly accurate recognition of multiple voice commands and sound events using a single microphone. The AON1100 also simultaneously detects specific motion patterns.
IRVINE, Calif., December 15, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) – AONDevices, Inc., a supplier of ultra-low-power, high-performance processors for a new era of cutting-edge AI, today announced that technical samples of its new AON1100 â¢ processor are now available. The AON1100 Edge AI processor enables detection capabilities unheard of in permanently battery-powered devices that need to support local wake-up words, voice commands, sound event detection, context detection and merging. industry-leading sensors with high precision, while maintaining low power consumption. consumption that prolongs the battery life, resulting in a better experience for the end user.
Real world recognition
The AON1100 is the industry’s first and only ultra-low-power multimodal solution that provides high-precision simultaneous recognition of multiple voice commands and sound events, such as a baby crying or a baby’s backfiring. car, using a single microphone.
The AON1100 also simultaneously detects specific movement patterns, such as walking or falling. When used in phones, headsets, portable devices, game controllers, vehicles or smart home devices, the AON1100 enables a natural human-machine interface at the device level without sending data to the cloud, thereby improving the user experience and ensuring confidentiality.
AON1100 includes two cores, AONVoice â¢ and AONSens â¢, which are based on AONDevices proprietary neural network technology. AONVoice offers 90% accuracy under 0dB SNR conditions. Including front-end processing and all memory required, the AONVoice core consumes less than 150 ÂµW of proven 40nm ULP silicon. This power is measured under constant 100% speech conditions.
The new era of machine learning
âThe AON1100 is a testament to AONDevices’ unparalleled ability to innovate in algorithms, systems and silicon,â said Mouna Elkhatib, CEO of AONDevices. âWe are engaged with several level 1 clients in key markets. With engineering samples and development kits now available, we can help OEM customers looking for complete solutions that don’t sacrifice privacy or business precision for power. In addition, we continue to activate major silicon and OEM partners with IP base licenses. We offer a wide range of new voice, audio and sensor use cases, and we can’t wait to see what new features our customers bring to market next.
AONDevices is a partner of the TinyML Foundation – a global industry group focused on developing the rapidly growing branch of ultra-low power ML technologies and approaches at the edge – and embraces the vision articulated by the organization. Commenting on the industry, Evgeni Gousev, Senior Director of Qualcomm and Chairman of the Board of the TinyML Foundation, noted that: âAt the TinyML Foundation, we envision this new world as having trillions of smart devices distributed. activated by an energy efficient machine. learning technologies that detect, analyze and act autonomously to create a healthier and more sustainable environment for all.
