ARK-X everyword Ultra Far-Field Dev. kit - TOP-electronics

Everyword Ultra Far-Field Evaluation kit - ArkX Labs

The Everyword Dev is Amazon AVS qualified and comes with build in speaker and 6 mics , included software stack and enclosure, This Development Kit is therefore the perfect starting point for adding Voice control to your application.

It allows testing and validation of your own voice-enabled products using advanced voice solution to mitigate risk, reduce development costs and accelerate time-to-market.

The voice capture capabilities extend up to 9+ meters in far field operation. Even in noisy and reverberative environments.

And the additional interfacing options of the internal I.MX 8 host processor allow additional hardware to be connected as well as offer support for WiFi 802.11 and Bluetooth 4.1.

The Everyword ecosystem also supports Google assistant, Baidu, Houndify, as well as the option to set a custom wakeword.

Captures voice commands:
- from across the room >9 meters
- in noisy and reverberative environments
- during loud music/movies
- unique ability to discriminate and suppress speech from TV

Apollo 4 (Blue) Plus – Low Power System-on-Chip - Ambiq

The Apollo4 Plus is the 4th generation system processor solution built upon Ambiq’s proprietary Subthreshold Power-Optimized Technology (SPOT) platform. The Apollo4’s complete hardware and software solution enables the battery-powered endpoint devices of tomorrow to achieve a higher level of intelligence without sacrificing battery life. The Apollo4 Plus is built on the 32-bit Arm® Cortex®-M4 core with Floating Point Unit (FPU).

With up to 2 MB of MRAM and 2.75 MB of SRAM, the Apollo4 Plus has more than enough compute and storage to handle complex algorithms and neural networks while displaying vibrant, crystal clear, and smooth graphics. If additional memory is required, an external memory is supported through Ambiq’s multi-bit SPI and eMMC interfaces.

The Apollo4 Plus SoC has the lowest dynamic and sleep mode power on the market which allows designers of next generation wearables and smart devices to take their innovative products to the next level.

- High-Performance Arm Cortex-M4 Processor with FPU
- Up to 192 MHz clock frequency
- Floating Point Unit (FPU)
- Memory Protection Unit (MPU)
- Ultra-Low Supply Current
- 4 μA/MHz executing from MRAM (with cache)
- Low-power sleep and deep sleep modes with selectable levels of RAM/cache retention

LC76G - GNSS module - TOP-electronics

GNSS module, LC76G - Quectel

The LC76G GNSS module of Quectel increases the number of visible satellites, which reduces time to first fix and improves accuracy. This GNSS Low Power (GLP), makes the LC76G achieving high performance with low power consumption.

The Multi-GNSS engine ensures fast and accurate fix in any environment. This module is ideal for consumer and industrial applications, and a preferred solution for power-sensitive applications. It is compatible with the L76 and L76-LB modules.

- GPS, GLONASS (or BeiDou) and QZSS
- Industry-leading sensitivity:-166 dBm during tracking & -147 dBm during acquisition
- Integrated LNA improves sensitivity
- Embedded multi-tone active interference canceller for anti-jamming
- Supported interfaces: UART and I2
- 10.1mm × 9.7mm × 2.4mm
- 0.3g
- Operating temperature of -40°C to +85°C

Low noise DC fan - San Ace 80 - 80x80x38mm - TOP-electronics

80 × 80 × 38 mm DC Fan with the Lowest Noise in the Industry - Sanyo Denki

The San Ace 80, 9RA type DC fan is ideal for cooling power supply equipment, measuring instruments, and other applications that require particularly quiet operation. 

When comparing to existing model the noise level has been reduced by 3 dB(A), which means an audible noise reduction of 50%(!) 
The power consumption has been reduced by 25.5%, making it very energy efficient.  

The product lineup is available in a wide variety in different 12/24/48 voltage, cooling performance, noise level, and PWM control. This allows users to choose the most suitable one for their applications.
