tSoniq is pleased to announce the availability of version 2.0 of its Mac OS X based Firmware Update Toolkit for USB peripherals, adding full support for OS 10.9 “Mavericks” and further Bluetooth chipset compatibility.
The toolkit supports all Device Firmware Update (DFU) compliant USB peripherals and adds extensions for Bluetooth based hardware that can be difficult to support under Mac OS X due to driver conflicts. tSoniq founder Mark Moore said: “We work closely with peripheral vendors to provide full compatibility with their products and to ensure that any failure during a firmware update can be routinely recovered without an expensive product return.”
The new release expands on the successful development of the original DFU tools, which are now field proven with substantial third-party product deployments, including design wins for more than six Bluetooth headset applications. The toolkit supports all USB DFU 1.0 and 1.1 compliant devices and is compatible with products based on popular Bluetooth chipsets such as Cambridge Silicon Radio’s CSR BlueCore 5 and CSR8670.
“Our existing experience and modular design allows us to achieve a fast time-to-market while retaining proven compatibility and reliability with a wide range of host and peripheral platforms.” says Mark Moore.
The USB Firmware Update Toolkit is a complete solution for Mac OS hosted firmware update applications, including drivers, in-application installer, SDK and complete sample application source code. The Version 2.0 release supports all Apple Mac OS X releases from 10.6 (Snow Leopard) through to 10.9 (Mavericks) and provides seamless compatibility with all Intel based Apple Macintosh computers, including systems with 32-bit kernels. This wide support ensures that applications using the toolkit can reach more than 90% of the available Apple Macintosh market (source: HitsLink NetMarketShare, August 2013).
