Fortemedia Inc.’s FM-1288 automotive voice processor integrates a powerful digital signal processing (DSP) subsystem for voice processing. Designed specifically to meet demanding automotive applications, the voice processing on FM-1288 contains algorithms to suppress wind, road, and engine noise commonly encountered in vehicles, while preserving the naturalness of the talker’s voice signals. The 48-pin, low-profile quad flat package (LQFP) can be connected to external devices with both analog and digital signal paths. The on-chip D/A and A/D data paths support an HD (wideband) voice signal, and it supports up to two microphones for voice inputs. The voice enhancement processing also intelligently equalizes the loudspeaker output based on the condition of the ambient noise to make sure that the inbound voice stands out in a noisy environment.
