The EasyVR 2.0 is a multi-purpose speech recognition module. The EasyVR module can be used with any host with an UART interface powered at 3.3V – 5V, such as PIC and Arduino boards. It is ideal for applications such as home automation (voice controlled light switches, locks, beds) or adding hearing to most popular robots on the market.


The SmartVR Module is an easy-to-use speech recognition platform that includes a vast range of speech recognition capabilities and is also capable of running as a stand-alone microcontroller without the need of a host processor.

The EasyVR Arduino Shield 2.0 introduces the ability for users to create up to 28 of their own custom Speaker Independent (SI) Command Vocabularies using the Quick T2SI Lite Software (license available separately).

Additionally the EeasyVR 2.0 includes SonicNet technology for wireless communication between modules or any other sound source. DTMF tone generation is also included.

Termite Terminal - RS232 Interfacing

Termite is an easy to use and easy to configure RS232 terminal. It uses an interface similar to that of "messenger" or "chat" programs, with a large window that contains all received data and an edit line for typing in strings to transmit.

It can also do ..
  • A history of commands that you typed, with auto-completion.
  • Support for non-standard Baud rates (MIDI, DMX512).
  • Data can be forwarded between two RS232 ports.
