The Advanced Far-field Voice Capture AFE module and development kit can capture voice commands from three times (3x) the standard distance, from around corners, in noisy and reflective environments, and without lowering playback volume.

The development kit is described as a production ready reference design and employs Cirrus Logic’s SoundClear FlexArray and NXP i.MX 8 host processor technology.

"ArkX's advanced far-field products enable engineers and developers to bring a powerful voice experience to their products," said David Stein, vice president of global supplier management for Digi-Key. "Digi-Key is proud to offer these cutting-edge solutions to our growing global customer base."

The voice capture module is intended to be used in IoT applications as a human to machine interface and will help to reduce development costs and speed time-to-market.
