I'm looking to create an Alexa-Enabled product using the ESP32-WROVER module.

After reviewing the esp-va-sdk repo ( I noticed at the bottom of the README file there are “Production notes” that state “In order to create Alexa-enabled commercial products, Amazon certified acoustic front-end has to be used. Please reach out to Espressif if you are looking to go to production.“

What is this about?

What is considered an “Amazon certified acoustic front-end”?

Thank you for your time.

Do you want to implement Alexa itself into your product or to make it controllable by an Alexa device? In the first case, the acoustic front end DSP must be AVS certified, this is the DSP in charge of echo/noise cancellation, beam forming, activation keyword detection etc.; contact for more information. In the second case, you just need to write an Alexa skill, which is not related to the ESP device.
