Designing with Speech Processing Chips focuses on the role that speech processing chips play in data processing, control systems, and inventory display. The book highlights the use of these chips in electronic circuit design. Divided into seven chapters, the book identifies different kinds of chips, including Serial Speech ROM SPR128A; SPR000 Parallel-to-Serial Speech Interface Chip; and Samsung Voice Synthesizers. Experiments on several speech processors are conducted. Electronic diagrams are also presented to show how these chips function. The text puts emphasis on analog and digital circuits. Concerns include the use of a window comparator or a 10-step voltage comparator to drive a speech processor; how to design alternating current motor-speed controller with artificial voice; and how to create a talking coffee machine controller. The book goes further by discussing the design of burglar alarms and voice recognition chips. The text is a vital source of data for system engineers, engineering students, technicians, and readers interested in the study of speech processing chips.
