Share Article

Geographically diversified embedded speech interface technologies in over 12 languages meet the voice user interface demands of today’s global marketplace.

Rubidium fills the need for a low cost, small footprint and low power solution that is flexible enough to be incorporated in essentially any consumer product.

Rubidium Ltd., a global supplier of embedded speech processing technologies, announced today that it has sold over 50 million copies of its embedded Automatic Speech Recognition (ASR) and Text-to-Speech (TTS) technologies. In 2013, Rubidium has enjoyed a productive year expanding its presence in the consumer device and semiconductor industries.

“The 50 million mark is a big deal for us at Rubidium,” states Founder and CEO of Rubidium, Shlomo Peller. “When we started Rubidium nearly 20 years ago, we had a vision of a voice user interface providing consumers with intuitive, hands-free control of their electronic devices. Today that vision has become a reality. With voice assistants like SIRI being widely accepted, the advantages of embedded voice user interface have become very evident. Rubidium fills the need for a low cost, small footprint and low power solution that is flexible enough to be incorporated in essentially any consumer product.”

Rubidium has been a recognized innovator in embedded speech processing technology for mobile devices, domestic appliances and consumer applications. Rubidium's multilingual voice user interface solutions, from low-cost chips to embedded software, include compelling solutions such as always-listening hands-free Voice Trigger, Automatic Speech Recognition (ASR), Text-to-Speech (TTS), speech compression and playback (e.g. speech storage, transmission and retrieval) as well as Biometric Speaker Verification.

“While our initial success was in the consumer devices market,” states Erik Ziv, VP Sales for Rubidium, “we are thrilled at the appeal features like our low resource voice trigger has to mobile device makers, as well as chip manufacturers and DSP providers. The fact that our voice trigger takes as little as 3 MIPS to run on most platforms provides a huge advantaged in the mobile industry. Semiconductor companies, who are suppliers to some of the leading smart-device manufacturers around the world, are discovering that Rubidium's technology is a desirable companion to cloud-based speech functionality. As a result of this we expect our numbers to climb in the years to come.”

Rubidium has also indicated that this year will see new releases of its technology suit that will bring more robustness and quality to the functionality it provides. Superior voice trigger, barge-in support and microphone array beam forming are just a few of the innovations from Rubidium that will see new releases in 2014.
