Gumstix Inc., the leader in design-to-order embedded systems, announces the release of the Gumstix Chatterbox Pi for the Raspberry Pi Compute Module, a development board for Amazon’s Alexa Voice Service (AVS).

Designed by Gumstix in Geppetto, and following the Amazon AVS functional design guide, The Chatterbox Pi for the Raspberry Pi CM ($116.00) provides a feature rich development platform for Alexa Voice Service projects. With a 2.5-Watt speaker driver, programmable pushbuttons, and a built-in microphone, Chatterbox can be configured as a hold-to-talk, or hot-word-detect Alexa platform. Exciting features, such as 15-pin CSI 2 camera connector, RGB LED, WiFi, and Bluetooth, as well as a 20-pin GPIO header make the Chatterbox Pi an ideal home assistant development board.

The Chatterbox Pi come ready to use for prototyping or designers can easily copy and modify the board design in Geppetto D2O to create their own custom Raspberry Pi Compute Module AVS or IoT design in minutes.

With the Geppetto D2O platform, IoT designers can now design and order hardware with any network connection and hardware feature they choose in minutes. During the design process, users can compare alternatives for features and costs, create multiple projects and receive complete custom BSPs and free automated documentation on demand with all saved designs. Designers are able to go straight from a design to an order in one session with no engineering required.

“We are excited to support the Raspberry Pi and IoT market with the Amazon Alexa Voice Service,” says Gordon Kruberg, Gumstix CEO, “The integration of AVS into Geppetto D2O is core to our mission: letting innovators take their designs to market as quickly and reliably as possible, while focusing on their own magic, their software application.”
