Tools provide customers with comprehensive support for developing and manufacturing WiSA E and WiSA DS designs for multichannel audio
BEAVERTON, Ore.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–WiSA Technologies, Inc. (NASDAQ: WISA), a leading provider of immersive, wireless sound technology for intelligent devices and next-generation home entertainment systems, announces two new tools available to WiSA Technologies’ customers designed to streamline the development and manufacturing of WiSA E and WiSA DS implementations. The new WiSA Server, in combination with the new Product Support Engineering Tool (PEST), enables faster time-to-market as well as comprehensive management of testing and other aspects of the manufacturing process.
The WiSA Server and PEST tools join the latest version of the mobile app, launched in December 2022, as the latest software-based applications designed to support the WiSA ecosystem of users, product designers and manufacturers.
Running on the product application processor, WiSA Server is a low-overhead software package that minimizes the time and effort required by customers to design systems using WiSA software. The WiSA Server Software Design Kit (SDK) provides high-level WiSA API commands via the product and mobile client interfaces and translates them into low-level I2C commands eliminating months from typical development cycles. Benefits include:
- Accelerates product integration with simple, design-proven and tested API commands that significantly reduce code complexity and development time.
- Ensures correct by-design interoperability across product families.
- Supports Linux or RTOS operating system environments.
- Automatically manages system push/pull notifications to all connected client devices. (e.g., volume notifications between mobile device, soundbar and speaker).
Product Support Engineering Tool (PEST)
In addition to managing and simplifying manufacturing module testing and programming, PEST provides efficiencies in test and manufacturing to make products operational and production ready. Benefits include:
- Software programming support to update WiSA modules.
- Tracking and traceability for product modules and final products.
- Configuration support for WiSA modules, including device types, speaker locations, country code and manufacturing data.
- Production test support for WiSA modules and final products including IOs, power, RF/Wi-Fi, audio, and pairing.
“We are doing everything possible to help our customers streamline their upfront development efforts and manage their manufacturing and testing of WiSA E and DS modules,” said Tony Parker, vice president of business development and strategy at WiSA Technologies. “The WiSA server dramatically helps customers reduce upfront development efforts, while the PEST tool provides powerful tracking and management of the final production process. Both add tremendous value to our customers as they develop and manufacture enabled products.”
For customers designing products with WiSA E or DS modules, WiSA Technologies offers a software design kit (SDK) for the WiSA Server and a manufacturing design kit (MDK) for the PEST tool.
