Building an embedded IP-PBX represents a significant paradigm shift from existing open source PBX designs that typically use PCI cards on x86 platforms. Until recently, current micro controllers (e.g. those in the 200MHz ARM & MIPs class) typically lack the DSP horsepower for multiple channels of speech compression or echo cancellation that is required for analog line interfaces. The Analog Device Blackfin chip has changed all this......
