Speech synthesis LSI built-in speech-speed/pitch conversion with 4M/8M/18M bit large scale P2ROM™
ML2272x/ML2276x series is a speech synthesis LSI that enables adjustments of the speech playback speed and pitches. The LSI enables speech playback slowly without changing the pitch, or increase or reduce the pitch without changing the speed. This enables voice guidance that can be easily understood by the elderly and change of voice tone of the guidance that is output by the alarm device according to the degree of urgency.
By using P2ROM™ memory in the memory section, the turn-around time from fixing of speech data to shipment has been reduced significantly. The built-in amplifier enables speech playback simply by directly connecting a speaker.
- Speech-speed/pitch conversion function
- Long-time playback of 1044 seconds in maximum
Large memory size to handle the increase of incorporation of speech data and high quality speech
- Built-in amplifier
- Memory bank function
The built-in memory can be divided, enabling a new way of using speech LSI such as increase of the number of playback phrases.
- The use of P2ROM allows TAT to be significantly reduced.
- Supports the development by evaluation board and special writer.
- 3 products (with the capacities of 4M, 8M, and 16M bits) lined up
- CPU IF: SPI(ML2272x), I2C(ML2276x)

Speech-Speed / Pitch Conversion Functions
The speech-speed conversion function enables the settings of playback speed in 150 steps from 0.5 times to 2.0 times. In this case, the pitch is hardly affected by the playback speed.
The pitch conversion function enables the pitch settings at 40 levels within the range of ±1%. In this case, the playback speed is hardly affected by the pitch.
Sodiac of AREX is used for the speech-speed conversion/pitch conversion techniques.
