Product Details

The A2B software ecosystem caters to a wide range of use cases from rapid prototyping to building production systems. The A2B Software add-on to SigmaStudio enables the user to graphically model an A2B network, which facilitates quick evaluation and bring-up of the network with audio routing. Once the network in stabilized, the configuration can be exported into an embedded platform. The A2B stack uses this configuration, manages the A2B network, and is comprised of the following:

  • SigmaStudio Plugin for A2B
    • A2B.dll
    • A2BStack.dll
  • A2B Stack Target Software (source code)
    • Embedded Main-loop (bare-metal)
  • Sample A2B application on ADSP-BF527, ADSP-21489, and ADSP-SC58x processor platforms
