Los Gatos, California, UNITED STATES

LOS GATOS, Calif. and MUNICH, Germany, June 26, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- At Sensors Expo, Infineon Technologies AG (FSE:IFX) (OTCQX:IFNNY), a worldwide leader in semiconductor solutions that make life easier, safer and greener, and Aaware, Inc., an emerging global supplier of sound capture technology for far-field, voice-enabled digital products, today announced the formation of their partnership. This also marks the project launch of a next-generation voice development platform to be released later this summer. Aaware’s Acoustically Aware™ technology is highly synergistic with Infineon’s digital MEMS microphone technology, combining to bring the best sound capture for extremely noisy environments in commercial and industrial applications.

Aaware is developing a new voice development platform based on the Zynq® Ultrascale™+ MPSoC device and will feature Infineon’s XENSIV Digital MEMS microphone. More details on the full capabilities of this new platform will be revealed soon. Under the terms of this partnership Infineon will supply the most sensitive digital MEMS mics that will be designed into a microphone array in the new platform.

“The formation of this partnership starts with a collaboration to bring commercial and industrial applications a superior sound capture capability, including extended support for embedded neural networks and can evolve to bring additional acoustic intelligence to our joint customers,” says Joe Gianelli, CEO of Aaware.

“We are impressed with Aaware’s voice capture technology and complete single chip SoC implementation for noise, echo, reverb cancellation and wake word, and are intrigued with their vision for advanced sound capture and neural network support,” says Roberto Condorelli, RFS Marketing Manager of Infineon Technologies AG.
