Espressif Systems has announced the launching of its AI voice development kit, ESP32-S3-BOX, which provides a platform for developing the control of smart devices with offline and online voice assistants and is ideal for developing AIoT applications with reconfigurable AI voice functions, such as smart speakers, and IoT devices that achieve human-computer voice interaction directly.
This AI voice development kit is based on Espressif’s ESP32-S3 Wi-Fi + Bluetooth 5 (LE) SoC and comes with 16MB of QSPI flash and 8MB of Octal PSRAM. With ESP32-S3’s 512KB SRAM, this ESP32-S3-BOX is equipped with a variety of peripherals, such as a 2.4-inch display with a 320x240 resolution, a capacitive touch screen, a dual microphone, a speaker, and two Pmod-compatible headers which allow for the extensibility of the hardware.
ESP32-S3-BOX uses a Type-C USB connector that provides 5V of power input, while also supporting serial and JTAG debugging and a programming interface. It can run Espressif’s Amazon-qualified Software Audio Front-End solution, Alexa for IoT SDK, the ESP-Skainet offline voice assistant, and the LVGL-based HMI solution, in addition to other SDKs, too, such as ESP-DL, and ESP-ADF.
