Overview

Description

Easy-to-use hardware platform for Voice User Interface (VUI) solutions based on the RA6E1 MCU.

This VUI partner enabled solution is based on the RA family of 32-bit MCUs. The hardware platform is used for all VUI partner enabled solutions provided by Renesas within the Renesas Ready Partner Network. It demonstrates how easy it is to control your system with a simple voice command interface without extensive coding experience or in-house expertise.

You will build an enhanced working solution that recognizes your own voice commands to trigger the corresponding operation using the Renesas Partner Network Solutions utilizing the Voice Hardware Platform.

Features

  • Hardware Features
    • Compact VUI solution using RA6E1. Small 10*10mm size to fit into end product.
    • Local voice recognition algorithm, no network connectivity needed. Support two language recognition simultaneously.
    • Microphones: choices of digital and analog microphones are populated for alternative input options.
    • External QSPI flash memory enhances storage for voice samples and library data.
  • Partner Enabling Solution Features
    • [document:1493216] enabled features:
      • Global language support: 40+ languages worldwide.
      • Support voice tag function to let user change command by voice recording.
      • Support voice response function for acknowledge. Enhance user experience.
      • DSMT tool: wake-word and commands customization, performance tuning, testing, no prior neural network knowledge needed.
  • Low BOM cost and footprint. Minimum requirements are the MCU, one DMIC and power supply.
