Analog Devices launched their SigmaStudio for SHARC graphical development tool for audio applications. The tool gives audio engineers the ability to easily program basic audio functions, and also incorporate third-party plug-ins and 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. The ADI SigmaStudio for SHARC tool is available as a free software download. It requires a Windows PC, CrossCore Embedded Studio IDE, a supported SHARC EZ-Kit and USB adaptor cables.
