Many speaker manufacturers see the opportunity in delivering smart speaker products, but may not have all the technical resource in-house to develop a connected platform. The Qualcomm® Smart Audio Platform is designed to help accelerate and redefine the development process for smart and networked speakers. It is highly flexible to support OEMs who want to add their own differentiating features, and includes a unique combination of Amazon Alexa, Qualcomm® AllPlay™ Smart Audio Platform and Google technologies, as well as powerful Multicore ARM and Qualcomm® Hexagon DSP platform architecture.
The platform offers two hardware options, along with a comprehensive set of software configurations which are designed to address smart speaker use cases for all tiers of product. Its advanced capabilities include support for high-resolution audio, Qualcomm® Quick Charge™ for enhanced battery charging, and far field voice capabilities that run at low power for always-on standby mode.
This comprehensive solution is engineered to help reduce the complexity of smart speaker development, improve development time and reduce cost.
