uCBF54x Start Kit and System Module by Arcturus

uCBF54x BoardThe uCBF54x-Start Kit and System Module by Arcturus Networks speeds development of a range of embedded media devices for commercial or industrial applications that use SIP signaling to enable multichannel voice, audio, mini-PBX, or IP video. The uCBF54x comes packaged in two main forms: an FCC-prequalified development kit (Start Kit) complete with implementation examples, or as a system-on-a-module (System Module) suited for dropping directly into end-products.

The uCBF54x Start Kit and System Module is based on a small form-factor embedded processor module that uses the high-performance 533 MHz Blackfin BF548 processor to support up to six channels of audio. This system-level solution integrates all subsystem components, including memory, codecs, transceivers, and network controllers, to develop most applications with only limited external circuitry. Software includes an open source uClinux™ BSP (board support package) and Arcturus Voice and Management Middleware, including a complete SIP and RTP stack. A host board is provided as part of the Start Kit and can be used as a reference for hardware and software development.

The combination of vendor-proven hardware, open source software, and middleware offers engineers the best of both worlds: flexibility to customize, integrate, and control the software, while having Arcturus to rely on for support.
