Amazon Opening Up Its Alexa 7-Mic Far-Field Dev Kit to Device Manufacturers

Amazon is taking its magical far-field voice technology, wrapping it up in a mic kit, and delivering it to device manufacturers.

Today we’re excited to announce that we are sharing our high-performance, far-field voice processing solution with third-party device manufacturers.

The Amazon Alexa 7-Mic Far-Field Dev Kit includes the same 7-microphone circular array found in the Amazon Echo and Amazon technology for wake word recognition, beam forming, noise reduction, echo cancellation, and sample client code for communication with the Alexa Voice Service (AVS). The solution is supported by leading chipset providers. With this release, we are making it easier for commercial device manufacturers to build and launch far-field products with Alexa by reducing development time and cost.

The Amazon Alexa 7-Mic Far-Field Dev Kit is available to commercial device manufacturers through an exclusive, invite-only program: Amazon Alexa 7-Mic Far-Field Dev Kit
