Sound Open

Write DSP code for HiFi in the Atom3800 on the MinnowBoard MAX

Sound Open Firmware is an open source audio DSP firmware and SDK intended to provide a generic audio firmware infrastructure and development tools to the community. The firmware is BSD licensed and is platform and architecture independent. The SDK is also open source and provides a toolchain, debugger, emulator and firmware image creation tools.

Sound Open supports the Cadence HiFi DSP used in the Intel Atom E3800 processor on the MinnowBoard MAX.  The standard Sound Open SDK is a command-line development environment based on GCC.  An optimizing C compiler and GUI IDE optimzed for DSP audio development will soon be available from Cadence.
