Webinar:
How to Design and Build Alexa into the Colibri iMX7 and Chatterbox AVS Development Board

Mar 21, 2018 | English

In this webinar video, we detail the complete hardware and software suite for the Amazon Alexa Voice Service (AVS) and the steps to deploy the Chatterbox and NXP® i.MX 7 powered Toradex Colibri iMX7 module as a wake-word or push-button activated Alexa device.

The Chatterbox simplifies designing voice-enabled devices while reducing cost and accelerating the integration process. Target applications include smart speakers, smart home and IoT devices, router and gateway devices, sound bars and set-top boxes. The Chatterbox design is freely available in Geppetto at Gumstix.

The Chatterbox includes a 2.5-Watt speaker driver, on-board microphone and line-in jack for high-quality audio I/O, and Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and Ethernet for connectivity. These features accompany the Toradex Colibri iMX7 module, microSD storage and real-time clock to create a complete home companion platform. The Chatterbox development boards can be used by designers for prototyping or can easily be copied and modified in Geppetto® D2O to create their own custom i.MX 7 AVS or IoT design in minutes. The i.MX 7 family of NXP SoCs is an ideal platform for many embedded and IoT applications.
