Unveiling the world’s lowest power voice detection

Breakthrough innovation specialists Cambridge Consultants today reveal “Ecoutez”, the world's lowest power, flexible IP block for accelerating Voice Activity Detection (VAD) processing. Alexa™ and Google Home™ are blazing a trail for ‘always-on’ functionality, but attention now turns to the energy consumption of such devices. Massive power efficiency will be vital if voice detection is to make the leap to battery-powered devices. The Ecoutez VAD design requires a tiny 11µW (microwatts) to perform accurate classification of audio signals. This is about 100th of the power consumed by modern hearing aids. As a result, the Ecoutez design will be a critical enabler for applications where the VAD is always on, opening the door to future innovation in voice recognition technologies.
