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.

Conexant's CX20865 platform with integrated quad 24-bit high-performance analog-to-digital converters (ADC)s, enhances voice control performance in the presence of random stationary and non-stationary ambient interference, enabling live demos in the retail environment and tradeshows while enhancing the usability of various voice controlled home appliances.
