DFU Tools Compatible with Mac OS X 10.11

Barcelona, September 30th 2015

tSoniq is pleased to compatibility for Mac OS X 10.11 (El Capitan) with version 3.2 of its CSR DFU compatible Mac OS X Firmware Update Toolkit for USB peripherals. Developed by tSoniq, two versions of the SDK are available to provide support for both “traditional” and HID based firmware update models. We can support application development using traditional a Cocoa/Swift architecture, or via cross-platform frameworks such as Electron.

tSoniq can also help minimise the risk of in-field firmware update failures by providing full regression testing of the DFU toos with your specific product and a wide range of Apple hardware and software. Testing includes the recovery of devices from hard-failures, such as an unplug of the USB cable during the update process. We also cman provide code-signing compliant with Apple requirements so that no special signing certificates are required when developing an application with the SDK.

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. It includes an easy-to-use API together with an example Cocoa application supplied with full source-code. The software supports USB DFU 1.0 and 1.1 compliant devices and also provides extensions for PSKEY access with popular Bluetooth chipsets such as Cambridge Silicon Radio’s BlueCore 5 and CSR8670.

The SDK can be licenced directly from us or may be used in conjunction with our consulting services as part of a custom software project. For pricing and availability, please email us at inquires@tsoniq.com with your requirements.

DisplayX Source Released

Barcelona, April 3rd 2014

tSoniq is pleased to release the DisplayX virtual display driver on Github. DisplayX is a subset of the full Virtual Display Toolkit and can be used to create multiple virtual displays under application control on Mac OS X.

The toolkit has generated a substantial amount of interest in the last year, and we hope that the release of the source code will enable non-commercial developers easier access to the core driver technology. The released code includes both a driver and sample application to illustrate how to control and capture screen data using the Quartz Display Stream APIs.

tSoniq can also offer custom application development based around the display toolkit. With more than 15 years experience in multimedia network technolgy we can support both local (reliable, low latency, high-bandwidth) and remote (lossy, high-latency, low-bandwidth) network applications using adaptive video compression, forward error correction and robust security.

To access the DisplayX source code visit https://github.com/tsoniq/displayx.

DFU SDK Version 2.0 Released

Barcelona, November 20th 2013

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).
