Based on the “Xiaoai Classmate” intelligent voice assistant and Xiaomi’s powerful ecosystem, Xiaoai speakers occupy a large market share in the current smart speaker market. From the first Xiaoai smart speaker to the recently released Xiaomi Sound high-fidelity smart speaker, dozens of products have been continuously launched. Recently, Xiaomi has launched an enhanced version of Xiaoai Play, an iterative upgrade product.
Compared with the Xiaoai Play smart speaker, the enhanced version of Xiaomi Xiaoai Play speaker has a new LED clock display function, and supports adaptive brightness adjustment, and supports voice setting alarms, setting reminders, countdown and other functions. The built-in infrared transmitter module and “Xiaoai Classmate” intelligent voice can realize voice control of 6000+ brands of home appliances. The stability of the smarter bluetooth Mesh gateway has also been further optimized. Mi Eco can provide massive resources for entertainment such as listening to music and audio books, listening to stories, learning English and other children’s enlightenment education.

TI TPA3138D2 Class D stereo audio amplifier IC supports inductor-less operation and supports a wide operating range of 3.5V to 14.4V. With mono output, the idle current is only 20mA (12V) in 1SPW mode, which is suitable for portable product applications.
The TVS tube with silk screen 12P is used for input overvoltage surge protection.
Joulwatt JW5052C current mode single chip step-down voltage converter, input range 4.5V-18V, can provide 2A continuous output current and two integrated N-channel MOSFET. At light loads, the regulator works at low frequencies to maintain high efficiency and low output ripple. JW5052C guarantees stability through short circuit protection, thermal protection, current runaway protection and input undervoltage lockout.
The bluetooth main control chip is covered by a metal shield, and a thermal pad is attached to the top of the shield, which is connected to the metal sheet to dissipate heat.

BES BES2300 is a fully integrated low-power WiFi/BT dual-mode AIoT SoC chip, which integrates high-performance multi-core CPU, low-power WiFi/BT wireless communication system, high-performance audio CODEC, storage subsystem, power management system and many more Highly integrated peripheral interfaces, using RTOS-based AIoT software platform, with outstanding computing performance and good scalability, in addition to being used in smart WiFi speakers, the chip can also be widely used as an intelligent voice module in smart home appliances and other fields.
According to 52audio, there are already a large number of true wireless headset products from Samsung, Xiaomi, OPPO, JBL, 1More, Honor, Baidu, OnePlus, Transsion, Realme, Anker and other brands that have adopted BES solutions.
All components of Xiaomi Xiaoai Play speaker enhanced edition.
The enhanced version of the Xiaomi Xiaoai Play speaker continues this series of simple designs in appearance. It also uses a cubic shape, with sound holes distributed around the fuselage, and an internal sound guide cone structure to achieve 360° pronunciation. Compared with the previous generation of products, the difference lies in the application of the new “xiaomi” LOGO and the addition of the LED clock, which provides it with more new functions.
The internal structure configuration is mainly divided into the top main board, the middle cavity, the bottom sound guide cone and the DC power input interface. A digital display screen is fixed on the internal cavity, and an IS31FL3236A LED driver is provided. A speaker with a power of 5W is fixed at the bottom of the cavity, and a TI TPA3138D2 Class D stereo audio amplifier is matched on the motherboard.
The main control chip on the motherboard is BES BES2300 fully integrated low-power WiFi/BT dual-mode AIoT SoC chip, with high integration, outstanding computing performance and good scalability; built-in two MEMS microphones for voice interaction and voice Call function. It is also equipped with a light sensor to detect the brightness of the environment and automatically adjust the brightness of the LED clock. And 4 infrared emitters to form an infrared emitting module, which is used to control home appliances in all directions in the home.
