Epson's highly efficient encoding format allows for longer phrases with excellent sound quality. The integrated high-quality 16-bit DAC produces a "silky voice" that can be coupled with high quality sound effects.

Feature 3. Easy to integrate

Epson's voice guidance LSIs use a message protocol based on asynchronous serial interface. This means they are easily integrated into a wide range of host devices and microcontrollers, reducing development time and costs, and helping achieve faster time to market.
