Adaptive Digital introduces Voice Engine / SIP Development Kit for Texas Instruments' Sitara™ ARM® Processors and BeagleBone open-source computers: A Complete VoIP Software Solution for Application Developers Supporting Linux® and Android™ Operating Systems. Adaptive Digital Technologies Simplifies VoIP Application Development. Harness the Power of VoIP Engine: Software Development Kits for Texas Instruments' Sitara ARM Cortex™-A8 and ARM9™ Processors.
PLYMOUTH MEETING, Pa., July 1, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Adaptive Digital Technologies (Adaptive Digital) today announced complete, ready-to-use Linux- and Android-based voice over IP (VoIP) solutions for Sitara™ AM335x ARM® Cortex™- A8 processors Texas Instruments Incorporated (TI): LnxVoice™ for Linux, and AnVoice™ for Android. By choosing Adaptive Digital's VoIP Solutions for Sitara processors, innovators can create feature-rich, low-power VoIP applications.
- Complete, ready-to-use, VoIP solution, including High-Definition Acoustic Echo Cancellation and Wideband codecs, and supporting SIP and peer-to-peer applications.
- Supports BeagleBone and BeagleBone Black open-source computers, which can run either Linux or Android.
- Simple API: Developers can easily integrate Adaptive Digital's VoIP solution for TI's Sitara AM335x ARM Cortex- A8 processors into Linux, and Android-based applications.
Adaptive Digital's VoIP Engine™/SIP Reference Kits, include both a voice over internet protocol engine software development kit (SDK) and a Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) SDK, which can be used together to accelerate the development of cutting-edge VoIP applications while delivering the best end-user experience.
VoIP Engine SDK features high-definition acoustic echo cancellation, noise reduction and automatic gain control (AGC) for voice quality enhancement (VQE), as well as speech compression (G.711, G.729AB, and G.722 and other optional codecs), RTP and Jitter Buffering.
Adaptive Digital's SIP SDK provides a customizable solution to quickly add SIP-based dial and receive phone call features into software applications. It supports: registration, call initiation, call-acceptance and call-teardown for VoIP telephones.
Reference Design Kits for Sitara include:
- SIP Phone Sample Project with source code
- VoIP Engine SDK (includes evaluation version library, header file and docs)
- SIP SDK (includes evaluation version library, header file and docs)
- SDK Quick Start Guide
- Developer Quick Start Guide
The included sample SIP Phone app is a fully functioning SIP phone. The app can be configured to connect to a standard SIP server. The sample SIP Phone app is also configured to place outgoing phone calls as well as receive inbound phone calls. Furthermore, Adaptive Digital's VoIP Engine/SIP Reference Kit supports peer-to-peer VoIP for applications that do not require SIP, opening the door to many new applications.
The VoIP Engine/SIP Reference Kit API is clean and simple to use. In fact, developing a VoIP-enabled app is as easy as customizing one of the sample SIP Phone apps, which are provided by Adaptive Digital in source code format as part of the SDK.
Included in the Reference Kit is G.722, a wideband compression algorithm, passing 7 kHz of audio bandwidth rather than the 3.5 kHz that is carried by wired phones and cell phones. The result is crystal clear voice, the likes of which is impossible in the public switched telephone network.
"The combination of Adaptive Digital's Voice Engine technology and TI's high-performance, low-power Sitara AM335x ARM processors enables customers to develop best-in-market, full-featured VoIP applications," said Rogerio Almeida, marketing manager, Sitara ARM processors, TI. "With Adaptive Digital's development kit, customers can accelerate time to market while still delivering the features and voice quality that matter to end users."

About VoIP Engine
VoIP Engine is a framework that bundles together many algorithms such as conferencing, vocoders, noise reduction, echo cancellation, etc. required in a VoIP application. Although VoIP Engine is more integrated than an algorithm, it is still not an application. It is a data processing engine. VoIP Engine has no interface to drivers or peripherals and performs processing solely at the request of the host application. This makes VoIP engine portable for use in conjunction with any application or operating system.
VoIP Engine is more than just a collection of algorithms packaged in a library. It connects them together. For example, in a PCM to Packet configuration, VoIP Engine is fed a PCM stream by an application. It processes the PCM through echo cancellation, noise reduction, AGC, speech compression, RTP, etc. and it returns a complete RTP packet to the application. Similarly, in the opposite direction, the application feeds VoIP Engine with an RTP packet and VoIP Engine returns PCM samples.
VoIP Engine is intended use is in VoIP enabled handsets or desktop phones. Although VoIP Engine is not tied to any particular software environment, it was designed with Android™, iPhone™ Windows, and Linux in mind.
