Leveraging the onboard DSP processing from XMOS XVSM3000, the UMA-8-SP supports voice algorithms including beamforming, noise reduction, acoustic echo cancellation, and de-reverb. An onboard 2x15Wrms digital amplifier provides an all-in-one microphone array plus amplifier integration.

USB audio capabilities include recording in two possible modes depending on firmware, such as 8-channel mode (7 x MEMS installed + 1 x spare PDM port in the center) and stereo recording with DSP processing enabled, as well as stereo channel to digital audio amplifier for USB audio playback.
