HOLTEK attaches great importance to STREAM education concepts and launches Music STREAM creative musical instruments and smart toy solutions

Press release 0

STREAM education is a novel educational concept of a new generation, combining science, technology, reading and writing, engineering, arts and mathematics. It brings inspiration and invention to help students improve their practical problem-solving skills. As this new trend of education will have a great influence on national competitiveness in the future, it is playing an important role in worldwide educational policies.

HOLTEK Semiconductor (HOLTEK) uses microcontroller technology along with product creativity to promote STREAM educational products:

1. HOLTEK has launched 32-bit music synthesis MCUs of a new generation: HT32F61355, HT32F61356 and HT32F61357.
2. HOLTEK has developed an Audio Workshop, an audio development platform, to assist customers to build diversified and interdisciplinary educational products efficiently.
3. HOLTEK provides a variety of Music STREAM creative musical instruments and smart toy application solutions.

A new generation of 32-bit music synthesis MCU

Based on the Arm Cortex -M0+ core, these are high-performance, low-power 32-bit microcontrollers. The devices have a maximum operating frequency of 48 MHz with memory capacity of 128KB ROM, 16KB RAM and 32Mbit~128Mbit of Data Flash. In addition, these devices offer a wide range of peripherals and communication interfaces. Fully equipped with an internal of 32-channel MIDI music engine, these devices can simultaneously operate the function of 32-channel wavetable synthesis and meanwhile provide stereophonic outputs. The data waveforms synthesized by the wavetable, such as musical instrument timbres, MIDI music melodies, voice, sound effects, etc., can all be directly stored in the internal data memory. This then can be used in the development of electronic organs, digital pianos, electronic drums, electric guitars, electronic accordions as well as other musical products, even can be used in Acoustic Vehicle Alerting System (AVAS) for electric vehicles.

Audio development platform (Audio Workshop)

The devices of HT32F6135x series are equipped with a powerful computing engine. When used together with the exclusive audio development platform, the Audio Workshop, these devices can implement pre-release evaluation and post-development design. This will offer enhanced editing and configuring music rapidly, same to voice, sound effects, sentences and other audio content. The Audio Workshop has multiple functions such as optimized editing, switching of customers' own unique timbres, ADSR parameter adjustment, real-time update of timbre parameters and simulated sound effects, etc. The use can also be expanded with various sensors and functional modules, allowing developers to quickly develop related voice, music, smart toys as well as many other audio products.

Creative Music STREAM demonstration products and solutions

HOLTEK has integrated both Music and STREAM to launch various application solutions of creative products.

7 creative instrument solutions:

Sophisticated lighting effect products can be thus created, such as "illuminated electronic drums" and "electronic strike pad" percussion instruments as well as "gesture controlled drum" percussion instruments. Moreover, there are simulated traditional musical instruments with interactive lighting, "electronic wind instruments" and "weighted key electronic pianos". These parts can be divided and joined to form "combination instruments" to implement a band ensemble. All electronic musical instruments can be directly played through "MIDI speakers", which can be matched with an App for intelligent teaching and enhanced playability, thus lowering beginners' learning threshold.

5 smart toy solutions:

Products such as "RGB full-colour combination light boards", "building block creative toys" and "colourful caterpillars" are platform products that include sound and light to create creative products for children. "humanoid robots" with integrated multiple sensors are high-end intelligent interactive experiential products which can be freely separated and spliced and combined into various shapes, when used with an App for graphical programming. "RGB screen card music early education machines" can read teaching cards, with mini games to integrate both educational activities and games.

1 solution of infant care:

A "smart cradle" can swing automatically. As combined with soothing music, it assists infants to fall asleep more comfortably and peacefully. It has a foot piano module for audio interaction as well as intelligent weighing and temperature measurement functions. With the App management and functions of cloud data recording, parents can be eased of the worry and pressure of parenting babies.

STREAM education focuses on interdisciplinary applications with an emphasis on the cultivation of creativity and improving the quality of students' study. Here HOLTEK provides one-stop Music STREAM solutions and demonstration products, allowing customers to promote STREAM education in the simplest and most efficient way.
