On December 17, 2021, at the first “Driphu China RISC-V Industry Forum”, Chengdu Qiying Tailun Technology Co., Ltd. introduced the company’s end-side intelligent voice dedicated AI chip-CI1122.
Zhang Lai, Vice President of Qiying Tailun Company
Sensory technology is upgraded, but it can’t get around the pain points of voice interaction. Currently, voice interaction technology is still facing many pain points in application. Zhang Lai, vice president of Qiying Tailun, summarized it as “clearly heard, distinguishable, usable and affordable”. Therefore, how to solve these problems has become the direction that Qiying Tailun has been exploring.
It is understood that CI1122 is the fifth dedicated AI chip launched by Qiying Tailun for end-side intelligent voice applications. Since its release in November 2020, mass production and shipment have reached the order of one million.
Zhang Lai introduced at the meeting: “CI1122 is an artificial intelligence chip dedicated to voice processing. It has a built-in core technology RISC-V high-performance processor core and has a high level of integration. In the case of shortage of main control chip supply , Can be competent for the development of related master control, realize the single-chip intelligent voice solution, the volume and price of the solution module are close to the level of conventional IoT modules.
In addition, CI1122 is based on the intelligent voice dedicated BNPU independently developed by Qiying Tailun, which can complete high computing power intelligent voice neural network operations on the end side with extremely low cost and power consumption, so that it can support local voice without relying on network cloud processing. Recognition, combined with the built-in RISC-V processor, can be used for various intelligent voice program applications, quickly empowering the voice intelligent upgrade of home appliances. In the interactive context set by the product, CI1122 recognition accuracy is no less than cloud recognition, and the interactive response is better in real-time (response within 0.2 seconds), and it can effectively cope with noise interference in the environment of various home appliances. “
At the same time, CI1122 has built-in high-performance and low-power Audio Codec module, and also integrates multiple UART, IIC, I2S, PWM, GPIO and other peripheral control interfaces, which can develop low-cost and high-performance single-chip intelligent voice offline recognition solutions. It can be widely used in home appliances, home furnishings, lighting, toys, wearable devices, automobiles and other product fields to realize voice interaction and control.
At present, the company has applied for more than 100 related intellectual property rights, and is in the forefront of the industry in the fields of integrated circuit design technology, local speech recognition technology and speech noise reduction processing technology. Recently, Qiying Tailun announced the completion of a new round of tens of millions of yuan in financing, this round of investment by Yuanhe Puhua. It is reported that this round of funds will be mainly used for the research and development of Qiyingtailun’s new generation of voice AI chips.
