Ultra-Fast, Secure Memory Supports Development of Voice-Activated Products with Amazon Alexa
SANTA CLARA, CA – May 16, 2017 – Adesto Technologies, (NASDAQ: IOTS), a leading provider of application-specific, ultra-low power non-volatile memory (NVM) products, announced that its serial flash memory has been selected to support Conexant Systems AudioSmart 2-mic and 4-mic development kits, a tool that allows product developers to quickly and easily build products with Amazon Alexa.
Adesto’s serial flash products feature ultra-fast program and erase operations and comprehensive security features to protect data stored on the device.
“Adesto application specific memory solutions are a great fit for voice-controlled products,” said Raphael Mehrbians, Adesto’s VP of Marketing. “Our fast read and program operations, flexible I/O architecture and security features contribute to the overall system’s performance. We’re proud to be part of Conexant’s high-performance AudioSmart far-field voice development kits.”
Conexant’s kits enable developers to save engineering time and reduce costs related to developing noise robust voice-enabled devices. The AudioSmart far-field voice input processor focuses on the user’s voice and removes echoes and noise from the audio signal, providing clear voice requests for speech recognition processing. The platform ensures that the speech recognition engine hears only the user’s command and nothing else; giving users consistent and accurate far-field voice interaction performance.
In addition to performance-enhancing features, Adesto serial flash products also incorporate a sector lockdown mechanism that allows any combination of individual 64-Kbyte sectors to be locked down and become permanently read-only. This addresses the need of certain secure applications that require portions of the Flash memory array to be permanently protected against malicious attempts at altering program code, data modules, security information, or encryption/decryption algorithms, keys, and routines. The devices also contain a specialized OTP (One-Time Programmable) Security Register that can be used for purposes such as unique device serialization, system-level Electronic Serial Number (ESN) storage, locked key storage, or other security mechanisms.
Adesto memories are used in a wide of variety of end applications with a strong presence in the Internet of Things, ranging from smart metering and lighting to fitness monitors. Adesto’s memory products are included in devices manufactured for consumer electronics, industrial devices, computing, communications, and medical applications.
