XMOS is a leading supplier of voice and audio solutions that focus on your voice, remove the background noise and enable you to interact with electronics in the most natural way. Our unique silicon architecture and highly differentiated software delivers class-leading far field voice capture and the highest quality digital multi-channel audio interfaces. VocalFusion voice controllers position XMOS at the interface between embedded voice processing, biometrics and artificial intelligence, with flexible integration to automatic speech recognition (ASR) systems.
In 2005, a small team assembled to create a fast and flexible microcontroller that would enable designers to respond quickly to diversifying market demand. The first (XS1) and second (xcore®-200) generation processors put unprecedented I/O capability (available through software for the first time) alongside significant DSP and control processing – establishing XMOS as a name in the audio sector.
The vision quickly shifted towards AI. Caught between two very different technical and commercial models, Graphcore was formed to focus on server-side AI, and XMOS continued the quest towards affordable embedded intelligence (edge-AI). Enabling voice to become mainstream, XMOS has gone on to release next generation, high-performance voice interfaces for smart things, alongside xcore.ai – a new crossover processor for the AIoT that brings AI, DSP, control and I/O together in a single device.
Our R&D team are bringing the future forward. Building on our xcore.ai platform, and leveraging our expertise in digital signal processing as well and extending our capabilities with new partnerships, we’re working on applications that detect human presence, use a human keyword and lean into imaging and radar for individual identification.
