REDWOOD CITY, CA, USA, May 16, 2018 / -- Gumstix® Inc., the leader in design-to-order embedded systems, announces the release of the Gumstix Chatterbox W5G for Raspberry Pi Compute Module, a development board for Amazon’s Alexa Voice Service (AVS). The Chatterbox W5G has an improved WiFi/Bluetooth® module providing the increased bandwidth of 5 GHz 802.11b/g/n over the previous 2.4 GHz model, as well as Bluetooth® 4.2 and BLE.

Designed by Gumstix in Geppetto, and following the Amazon AVS functional design guide, The Chatterbox W5G for the Raspberry Pi CM ($135.00) 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 W5G 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 W5G Pi an ideal home assistant development board.

The Chatterbox W5G comes 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.
