(PresseBox) - Seiko Epson Corporation (TSE: 6724, "Epson") has begun shipping samples of the S1C31D50, a 32-bit microcontroller with dedicated sound hardware for 2-channel sound. Epson plans to produce 200,000 units per month of each model.

Sound is becoming an increasingly popular feature in home electronics, remote controllers for home appliances, industrial devices, health and fitness equipment with guidance systems, and alarms in office buildings, shopping complexes, and factories. This MCU is ideal for all these applications. An ARM

The MCU?s dedicated HW Processor sound hardware boasts a pair of special features. First, the HW Processor plays sound without requiring CPU resources, so CPU resources can be allocated to other processes even during sound playback. The use of a high-compression algorithm (16 kbps (at) 16 kHz) shrinks the size of sound data memory, making it possible to provide a large amount of sound data and sound data in multiple languages. Epson also offers a PC tool that provides a development environment for easily creating sound data in Japanese, English, Chinese, and Korean without studio recording.

Second, the MPU also has a self-memory check function that can detect failures in built-in RAM, built-in Flash, and external SPI-Flash memories without using CPU resources.

Epson is committed to helping its customers improve the performance of their products with solutions that leverage Epson''s efficient, compact, and precision technologies.

Key Product Features

1. Dedicated hardware block for independently executing functions. The HW Processor executes the following functions without using CPU resources:

Sound play processing

2-channel mixing sound (for playing background music + voice)



Voice speed conversion (playback speed adjustable in 5% increments

The sampling rate of 15.625 kHz is high enough for background music

High-compression voice decoding algorithm with high sound quality

Self-memory check function

Built-in RAM (R/W check, MARCH-C START)

Built-in Flash checksum, CRC

External QSPI-Flash checksum, CRC

Simple HW Processor interface

Just set functions and commands in the special register and then start

2. Easily add voice later

Sound data is easily added simply by writing the sound data and sentence information (sound data number and joining information)

3.

Epson sound creation PC tool

Studio recording is not needed. Simply use the PC tool to create all the

Sound data, which is assigned a number in the PC tool, can be played

Your WAV format sound data is easily imported into the PC tool
