VoIP Processors (Chips) for VoIP Gateways

AC496 VoIP Toolkit

AC496 VoIP Toolkit

The AC496 ATA Toolkit is a combined hardware and software ATA reference design based on the AC496 System on Chip (SoC). The AC496 SoC (System on Chip) provides ATA developers and manufacturers with single chip field-proven complete ATA solution, integrated with superior voice quality at a competitive price.

AC496 SoC (System on Chip)
In a single chip, the AC496 combines the main ATA components; including a MIPS 4KEC CPU, AC49x DSP and a 3-port Ethernet Switch (MACs and PHYs) together with a rich set of peripherals. The AC496 is based on the VoIPerfectHD™ architecture (High Definition VoIP) support, AudioCodes' underlying, best-of-breed, core media gateway technology for its product line. Utilizing its highly integrated structure and requiring only a minimal number of peripheral devices, time to market is rapid with little risk.

Development Platform and Reference Design
The AC496 ATA VoIP Toolkit is a combined hardware and software ATA reference design. The AC496 ATA VoIP Toolkit is based on the AC496 System on Chip (SoC) family. In a single chip, the AC496 combines the main ATA components, inlcuding a MIPS 4KEC CPU, AC49x DSP and 2-ports MACs/PHYs together with a rich set of peripherals. The hardware reference design includes the AC496 and FXS and FXO modules.

AC496 ATA Toolkit Hardware Design 

 

ATA Software Development Kit (SDK)
The AC496 ATA VoIP Toolkit couples the hardware with a complete Linux software suite supporting voice and network protocols, call features and management applications. The software is available in open source code and consists of separate modules which allow customers to easily differentiate themselves.

AC496 Tulip ATA/AC496 Tulip 2

The AC496 Tulip and AC496 Tulip-2 are complete, ready to-use reference designs of an ATA and Gateway with data routing capabilities. The AC496 Tulip supports two FXS/FXO ports and the AC496 Tulip-2 supports four FXS/FXO ports. AudioCodes field-proven VoIPerfectHD™ DSP software and the integrated AC496 System on Chip (SoC), the AC496 Tulip and AC496 Tulip-2 offer OEMs and ODMs an excellent and cost-effective solution for the rapidly growing residential and Small Office/Home Office (SOHO) VoIP market.

The AC496 Tulip and AC496 Tulip-2 have a cost-effective Bill of Materials (BOM) to support aggressive market cost demands. An additional data port provides the option to convert a PC to the ATA without supplementary hardware. Special attention was given to designing the hardware and PCB to shorten customer investment in the homologation process.

AC496 Tulip ATA key features

  • Production Ready Analog Telephone Adapter (ATA) Reference Design
  • Available as a module or through production license
  • Data Routing Capabilities
  • Minimizing risk and allowing quick time to market for ODMs and OEMs rolling out VoIP-based services
