Analog Devices launches graphical audio development tool for SHARC processors

October 30, 2012

Analog Devices, Inc. (ADI), a global leader in high-performance semiconductors for signal processing applications has introduced the SigmaStudio for SHARC graphical development tool for audio applications.

SigmaStudio has been designed and developed by ADI’s India Product Development Centre in Bangalore. The SigmaStudio for SHARC tool is a programming, development and real-time tuning software environment that enables developers to graphically design and program audio applications for SHARC processors using an extensive, optimised library of more than 100 pre-built audio algorithms. The SigmaStudio for SHARC 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 new 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. 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.

Commenting on the launch, David Lannigan, director, Software and Tools Engineering, Processor and DSP Products Group, Analog Devices, says, “Running exclusively under our new CrossCore Embedded Studio IDE, SigmaStudio for SHARC puts extensive, optimised programming tools directly in the hands of audio designers. 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. Designers using Sigma Studio for SHARC now have the flexibility to try multiple solutions in the same time it previously took to program a single function.”
