Who we are
We are a team of engineers with more than 50 years of combined industry experience in IP-Core design, including solutions for low power IoT devices, with many silicon-proven designs. We combine this experience with academic research on digital signal processing (DSP) and voice recognition.
Therefore, we offer a unique blend of industry proficiency and scientific knowledge, which leads us to create excellent solutions.
Our goal is to create a comprehensive set of complementary IPCores for voice controlled devices.
What we do
Phonemic designs IPCores for IoT devices with voice interfaces. The world is on the edge f a IoT revolution that will change many aspects of our lives such as electronics we use, industry, transportation, or healthcare.
The key issue is going to be minimising the power consumption which in turn will enhance battery life and lower the weight of battery powered IoT devices.
Phonemic proposes a unique Voice Activity Detection (VAD) IP-Core based on innovative algorithms that are able to distinguish between speech and ambient sounds with high accuracy. The VAD IP-Core can be integrated in a SoC (System-on-Chip) and used as a wake-up mechanism for functional blocks of voice interface with more advanced inference capabilities, such as voice command recognition, to significantly save energy during non-speech periods.
It is expected to reduce the total power consumption of a voice interface up to 100 times, which means lower battery requirements and, in turn — significantly extending the battery life of an IoT device.
