Bedford, Mass. - A new hardware development kit from ChipWrights, Inc., is based on the CW5631 system-on-chip (SoC), which is used for the design of multimedia applications. Target applications include IP cameras, IPTVs, digital video recorders, personal media players, digital signage, and video conferencing.
ChipWrights' Hardware Development Kit provides a comprehensive design environment that includes the hardware and software necessary to develop premium audio and video processing applications, including video I/O, networking, multiple media storage interfaces, and support hardware. In addition to the development board, components include: a video camera, LCD display, ChipWrights' Software Development Kit (SDK), storage cards, infrared remote control, JTAG USB wiggler, documentation and schematics.
The kit supports several flexible interfaces, allowing the emulation of final hardware for rapid development of software before target hardware exists. Full integration with the SDK enables developers to build embedded audio and video designs on a fully integrated hardware platform that includes software design/debug capability.
Key features include: SATA interface, HDMI transmitter, IR transceiver, digital video input/output connectors, audio codec, IDE interface, USB 4 port hub, camera board connector, PLL circuit, Power Over Ethernet, board ID EEPROM, alternate LCD interface connector, WiFi module connector, Ethernet and USB connections, RS-232 interface, on-board flash for boot code, integrated debugging with the SDK, GPIO pins for design flexibility, and sample applications that provide a baseline for most customer applications.
