BANGALORE, INDIA: Helping audio consumer electronics (CE) manufacturers stay ahead of the latest trends in connected entertainment, Texas Instruments Inc. (TI) is launching the networked audio software development kit (nSDK), allowing developers to quickly and easily integrate Internet radio and online streaming services into end products based on the DA8x Aureus platform of audio processors.
The flexible nSDK enables developers to easily and quickly achieve high-performing, cost-effective solutions for connected consumer products, offering up to nine months of development time savings. The nSDK eases and accelerates ARM-based development for applications such as Internet radios, networked audio video receivers (nAVRs) and other connected audio products.
The DA8x nSDK includes a comprehensive package of pre-integrated online music services, local network streaming audio features as well as implementations of network interoperability standards. The nSDK also offers tested drivers for key peripherals and operating system support to allow audio CE manufacturers to more easily design networked audio products with reduced time to market.
The nSDK provides software building blocks as a starting point for product development while still allowing the developer to add software and services as well as customize the end product’s user interface. The software included is production ready, yet it offers developers the flexibility to quickly and easily adapt designs for targeted networked audio applications.
