Andes Technology N9 CPU Designed in Customer's SoC Shipping in Home Smart Speaker Artificial Intelligence Device

AndesCore(TM) N9 High Performance Efficiency, Low Interrupt Latency Support Customer's SoC 4-in-1 Wireless Connectivity: 2.4GHz Wi-Fi/Bluetooth; 5GHz Wi-Fi; GPS; and FM

HSINCHU, TAIWAN--(Marketwired - November 14, 2017) - Andes Technology Corporation (TWSE: 6533), the leading Asia-based supplier of small, low-power, high performance 32/64-bit embedded CPU cores, today announced its N9 CPU IP is designed into a world-class Taiwan-based IC design house customer's SoC. This chip is shipping in a voice-controlled artificial intelligence (AI) device from one of the world's largest on-line retailers. The AndesCore N9's high performance efficiency and low interrupt latency supports the ability of the customer's SoC to provide wireless connectivity front end for the 2.4GHz WiFi/Bluetooth, 5GHz WiFi, GPS, and FM radio front ends. The high integration of the customer's SoC makes it highly demanded in cost-sensitive, small-form factor consumer smart speaker AI devices. These smart speaker AI devices feature hands-free, voice-control to play music, control smart home devices, make calls, send and receive messages, provide information, read the news, set alarms, read audiobooks, control video, and more.

"We are thrilled to be integrated into this leading Taiwan IC design house's chip," said Andes President Frankwell Jyh-Ming Lin. "In highly integrated chips like this SoC, our ability to provide 3.6 CoreMark/MHz compute performance while consuming 80% of the program memory size of its competitors gives Andes a distinct advantage. Furthermore, the N9 allows designers to configure its performance, power, and size to match his/her application's requirement more precisely. These capabilities have enabled the N9 to win a number of wireless connectivity designs."

About the Home Smart Speaker Market

An Andes study done this year projected that the world's tier one on-line sellers could have more than 800 million active customers globally by 2022. "Assuming 30 percent adoption rate in the U.S. and 20 percent internationally, this would mean 55 million devices sold that year," the study concluded. "Assuming a two year-replacement cycle, and $75 average selling price, this would generate revenue of $4 billion in 2022."

About the AndesCore™ N9 Family

The AndesCore N9 Family is intended for deeply embedded applications that require high performance efficiency and optimal interrupt response features, including wireless networking and sensors as in microcontrollers, automotive electronics, and industrial control systems. The low-power N9 Family of processors features compact program size, low gate count, low interrupt latency, and low-cost debug. The processor family provides superior performance and excellent interrupt handling response while meeting the challenges of low dynamic and static power constraints. The AndesCore N9 Family of CPU cores implement v3, the patented AndeStar™ 32-bit RISC CPU architecture. The designers can configure certain parameters to adjust the desired CPU's performance, power and gate count. For example, the N9 core can be configured with 16 or 32 general registers, two or three read ports on the register file, one or two write ports, a fast or a small multiplier, a 24-bit or 32-bit address space, and different bus (APB, AHB, AHB-Lite, or AXI) interfaces to connect to the rest of the system. Its bigger cousin N10 Family supports caches and an optional floating-point coprocessor.
