Amazon Alexa users expect a high quality and consistent experience across all Alexa Built-in products. To recognize speech from a distance in noisy conditions, special attention must be paid to echo cancellation, voice processing and acoustical design for microphones and speakers.
To help meet these requirements and build an excellent product with Alexa Built-in, NXP now offers at its Mougins, Sophia-Antipolis facilities, a sound absorbent chamber with control room, and fully automated test equipment available to its customers desiring to test their devices.
This facility is particularly suited for customers needing to self-test their Alexa Built-in products.
In order to achieve a great Alexa Built-in integration, one must follow the Alexa Voice Service (AVS) development lifecycle including product testing.
If your product supports music and/or is far-field enabled and uses a wake word to initiate interactions with Alexa, testing is required prior to submitting your product to Amazon for evaluation.
This is where Pro-Support Audio Voice Services can help complete the self-test checklists before an Alexa Built-in product can be submitted to Amazon for evaluation prior to commercial distribution of your product.
