Our story

Our relationship and reliance on technology is changing rapidly. In this increasingly complex, connected world, we want a more seamless connection with the technology around us. We want technology that can talk, empathise, relate and react – an interface between human and machine that feels … human. One that comes with no instructions needed.

With a 10-year pedigree in Hi-Res and multichannel USB audio solutions, XMOS is at the forefront of the far-field voice interface market, with the most qualified, most comprehensive range. Adopted by leading brands, our  high-performance, easily integrated solutions are transforming consumers’ interactions with everyday devices.

With more than 78 hardware and algorithm patents, XMOS silicon and software solutions deliver best in class voice capture – detecting voice commands accurately, from across the room – even in busy environments when the person is speaking softly. Which means more people get the answer they’re looking for from their Virtual Personal Assistant.

We are headquartered in the UK, with offices across Asia and the United States.
