In addition to hardware, Ibiquity says it has been focused on upgrading its software designs.
Development kits across several applications are now available to manufacturers. So are a reference design for iTunes tagging support as well as a testing, inspection and certification suite.
We recently noted that Ibiquity signed technology licenses with SamBoo InfoTech, Analog & Digital Soft Company and KRS Electronics. These companies are providing software-development kit support for applications like head units, personal navigation devices, iPod docks, automotive head-ends, mini-shelf systems and AV receivers.
The company’s involvement consists of host microprocessor and user-interface design as well as advanced feature prototyping.
Ibiquity said it also now has an iTunes tagging reference design that supports advanced features available to manufacturers. The design defines HD Radio receivers with iPod docking stations and iTunes tagging support and is available to Apple Made-for-iPod and Ibiquity licensees.
In response to demand for digital radio module certification in Asia, Ibiquity says, its HD Radio technology lab in Hong Kong from InterTek Group will enable walk-in test requests and reduce test times.
