Knowles Corporation (NYSE: KN), a market leader and global provider of advanced micro-acoustic, audio processing, and precision device solutions, has announced its SmartMic solution was selected by global smartphone leader OPPO for its new flagship smartphone “Find X,” the company said.
The Knowles SmartMic (IA610) is the world´s first solution to combine a high-performance MEMS microphone with a state-of-the-art audio DSP into a single, miniature package. The result is an open, flexible, and highly integrated platform ideal for OEMs that want to enable unique audio features, like always-on voice-wake or low power voice control. This includes mobile phones, headsets and battery operated consumer products as well as plugged-in devices requiring energy compliance.
Unlike competing voice-wake solutions that only work with one particular application processor (AP) or architecture, Knowles SmartMic enables smartphone customers to use the same solution across their devices, regardless of the AP or architecture, resulting in faster time-to-market, lower development costs, and a consistent user-experience across their entire product portfolio.
