CEVA and Sensory Enable Power-Optimized Always-Listening Smart Wearables and Sensor Fusion Solutions via TrulyHandsfree™ 3.0 for CEVA-TeakLite-4 DSPs

Companies to demonstrate ultra-low power voice activation solutions requiring as little as 20 microwatts for mobiles, smart wearables and sensor hubs at Mobile World Congress 2014

MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., Feb. 14, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- CEVA, Inc. (NASDAQ: CEVA), the leading licensor of silicon intellectual property (SIP) platform solutions and DSP cores, and Sensory, Inc., a pioneer in speech technologies for consumer products, today announced the availability of power-optimized solutions aimed at bringing advanced voice activation capabilities to a new wave of mobile and sensor-enabled devices.

The solutions integrate Sensory's market-leading TrulyHandsfree Voice Control Version 3.0 optimized for the CEVA-TeakLite-4 V2 DSP architecture, to address a variety of consumer applications that demand ultra-low power consumption for "always on, always listening" voice control functions. For example, the solution consumes less than 20 microwatts for voice triggering in 28nm, making it ideal for always-listening wearable devices such as smart watches and glasses, as well as integration into sensor hub solutions in smartphones. The companies will showcase the latest TrulyHandsfree features optimized for the enhanced CEVA TeakLite-4 V2 architecture at the 2014 Mobile World Congress in the CEVA booth (Hall 6, Stand A50).

Bill Teasley, Sensory's VP of Engineering said, "We are extremely pleased with CEVA's support for power optimization of TrulyHandsfree Version 3.0 on their CEVA-TeakLite-4 V2 family of cores. The latest enhancements they have made to the CEVA-TeakLite family further lowers the power consumption of 'always on, always listening' capabilities, providing our mutual customers with a truly world-class solution for their voice-enabled applications."

"We continue to build the industry's most advanced set of solutions and ecosystem for mobile applications, including the fast growing domain of wearables and sensor-enabled Internet of Things. The power optimization improvements we have made with the release of our CEVA-TeakLite-4 V2 DSP architecture combined with the optimization of Sensory's latest features will enable our customers to gain even greater performance advantages for their voice-centric applications with an ultra-low power budget," said Moshe Sheier, director of product marketing for audio and voice at CEVA.

Version 3.0 of Sensory's TrulyHandsfree technology allows speaker identification for personalization of the user experience via powerful and accurate voice biometric analysis of both pre-configured and user-defined passwords. Combined with power efficient voice triggering, the user needs only to speak to wake the device and retrieve their preferences. The availability of these latest features on the enhanced CEVA-TeakLite-4 V2 architecture further solidifies CEVA's position as the industry's most power efficient DSP architecture for advanced audio/voice applications.

Both SaaS vendors and SaaS buyers are going “all-in” to hyperscale IaaS platforms such as AWS, which is disrupting the SaaS value proposition. Why should the enterprise SaaS consumer pay for the SaaS service if their data is resident in adjacent AWS S3 buckets? If both SaaS sellers and buyers are using the same cloud tools, automation and pay-per-transaction model offered by IaaS platforms, then why not host the “shrink-wrapped” software in the customers’ cloud? Further, serverless computing, cl...
You know you need the cloud, but you’re hesitant to simply dump everything at Amazon since you know that not all workloads are suitable for cloud. You know that you want the kind of ease of use and scalability that you get with public cloud, but your applications are architected in a way that makes the public cloud a non-starter. You’re looking at private cloud solutions based on hyperconverged infrastructure, but you’re concerned with the limits inherent in those technologies.

"When we talk about cloud without compromise what we're talking about is that when people think about 'I need the flexibility of the cloud' - it's the ability to create applications and run them in a cloud environment that's far more flexible,” explained Matthew Finnie, CTO of Interoute, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at 20th Cloud Expo, held June 6-8, 2017, at the Javits Center in New York City, NY.
Wooed by the promise of faster innovation, lower TCO, and greater agility, businesses of every shape and size have embraced the cloud at every layer of the IT stack – from apps to file sharing to infrastructure. The typical organization currently uses more than a dozen sanctioned cloud apps and will shift more than half of all workloads to the cloud by 2018. Such cloud investments have delivered measurable benefits. But they’ve also resulted in some unintended side-effects: complexity and risk. ...
