ADI gives SHARC a graphical design tool for audio
Analog Devices has introduced a graphical development tool for audio applications running on its SHARC digital signal processors.
The SigmaStudio tool is a programming, development and real-time tuning software environment for SHARC processors uses a library of more than 100 pre-built audio algorithms.
The development tool supports both block and sample processing and enables a variety of functions such as filtering, mixing, decoding and dynamics processing, as well as basic low-level DSP functions and control blocks on multiple audio channels.
“The tool allows audio engineers to wire together familiar audio processing blocks in a schematic-like layout, while a compiler generates DSP-ready code and a ‘control surface’ for setting and tuning all parameters in real time, directly on the production system,” said the supplier.
“It gives audio engineers the ability to easily program not only basic audio functions, but also incorporate third-party plug-ins and sophisticated, custom algorithms,” said David Lannigan, director, Software and Tools Engineering, Processor and DSP Products Group , Analog Devices.
The SigmaStudio for SHARC tool is available as a free software download and requires a Windows PC, CrossCore Embedded Studio IDE, a supported SHARC EZ-Kit and USB adaptor cables.
