SPIRIT Offers New Kit for Developing Hands Free Car Solution

2/11/2004 - SPIRIT (www.spiritDSP.com), the biggest eXpressDSP software house in Europe (Texas Instruments processor sales data), offers its new software product SPIRIT RealDuplex - Acoustic Echo Canceller (AEC) for Hands Free Car Kits. The product is primary targeted for OEMs planning to develop hands free car kits.

Easily compatible with Bluetooth communication standard, SPIRIT solution can become a solid base for development a device with wireless interface to mobile phone. As far as there is the global trend towards banning the use of mobile phones while driving, voice-based applications featuring Bluetooth wireless technology are the primary applications for SPIRIT AEC solution. Obviously hands free devices make driving safer while SPIRIT software provides excellent speech quality and user-friendly interface.

RealDuplex from SPIRIT includes all software components for developing a device making possible comfortable and enjoyable communication over the mobile phone while driving. Echo cancellation and noise suppression features filter out surrounding noise and phone echo effects. With SPIRIT software, users on the both ends can hear each other easily without any speech distortions and nearby noises.

SPIRIT RealDuplex based on full-duplex technology enables both parties speak at the same time, making conversation like in a face-to-face, without any delays, squealing, howling, voice clipping, or break-in. SPIRIT RealDuplex has been deployed in the US, UK, France and Germany.

Moreover, SPIRIT RealDuplex has a speech recognition module enabling implementation of user-friendly voice-activated communication control. Simple verbal commands can be used to place calls, bringing true hands-free convenience. There's no more need to grope around for the phone and push the buttons to answer a call.

OEM Companies will shorten their time-to-market by utilizing SPIRIT DSP software solution to develop end-user devices or units integrated with in-car audio systems.

"Leave your cell phone in your pocket and answer the calls risk-free keeping your hands on the wheel and your eyes on the road", - says Andrew Sviridenko, founding CEO of SPIRIT.
