Kiss-Box selects XMOS processors for new gen of products

Postby jason » Wed May 04, 2011 11:56 am

The Kiss-Box is a network controlled devices specifically designed for show-control and audio related applications. One of the biggest challenges is to be able to support many different peripherals (DMX, MIDI, analog and digital I/O backplane, LTC, etc...) from the same CPU board. The previous design was requiring a lot of "glue" electronics and peripheral processors.

Benoit said, "The programmability of the XS1 ports allowed us to greatly simplify the electronic design, since most of the processing is now done directly by the processor. The quality of the development tools permitted to port our existing C code into the XS1 in less than three weeks".

The new CPU board will also be available in OEM format, especially for RTP-MIDI applications.

What they'll need is ..
1) Common 'backplane' (if you can call it that) bus protocol.
2) Individual protocol modules that convert common-bus to the specific I/O protocol.

1) is standard Xmos stuff..
2) is possible through a DIPSwitch selector with a large boot serial ram.. and/or hard/software specific protocols.

No brain strain here..
