IRVINE, Calif.--Conexant Systems, Inc. today announced a partnership with LG Electronics (LG) for multi-phase integration of Conexant's industry-leading Far-Field Voice Input technology in LG's range of stylish, innovative and reliable home appliances such as air conditioners and vacuum robots. Conexant's industry leading Far-Field Voice Input Processing solutions provides clean, noise-free speech signals for voice-control of appliance settings, enabling highly accurate speech recognition for voice command and control at extremely low power.
