Quad core smart audio solution has built-in Google Assistant

January 07, 2019 // By Julien Happich
Built around a powerful quad core AMLogic A113X SoC featuring the highly popular Cortex A53 64-bit processor and a high-performance Marvell Wi-Fi/BT SoC which supports 802.11ac 2x2 and BT/BTL 4.2, the Minuet 2 is designed to be used at the centre of hi-fidelity smart audio products, such as soundbars, wireless speakers, AVRs, surround sound systems and hi-fi systems.

Frontier Smart Technologies' Minuet 2 has been designed as a turnkey solution allowing OEMs and ODMs to integrate Google Assistant and Chromecast into high-performance smart audio products. Minuet 2 can also be used to add Google Assistant into non-audio IoT products - providing an intuitive user interface for smart home and B2B devices.

Multiple interfaces include a range of audio interfaces such as multiple microphone connections using PDM, a generous number of I2S input and output channels and SPDIF, but also Ethernet, USB 2.0, GPIO plus I2C and UART serial connections.

Minuet 2 has been designed as a major component in a complete hardware and software system that includes Frontier’s SmartSDK, a fully featured Linux based software framework for audio products, and a fully qualified reference design. Alongside the module and software, Frontier also provides customization and pre-compliance services that minimize the time and cost required to get these sophisticated products to market.

Another component offered with Minuet 2 is Frontier Nuvola, a cloud-based service managed by Frontier which provides secure OTA software updates and other device management functions ensuring that critical updates and new features can be pushed out to installed devices.
