Milpitas, California-based chipmaker DSP Group Inc on Thursday said it has partnered up with Amazon to try to change that. The company is offering a standardized chip that is a little smaller than a US 10-cent coin that gadget makers can use to embed Alexa into their own device.
DSP is not the only entrant in the race. Though its Alexa Voice Services division, Amazon has been working with a broad range of chipmakers to offer gadget makers an easy way to embed Alexa in their hardware - Intel Corp, Qualcomm Inc and Cirrus Logic Inc, among others, all offer chips that will put Alexa inside a gadget.
