Data over sound is a flexible technology because it spans not just device form-factors and platforms, but also device generations. We work hard to make sure that we provide developer-friendly native SDKs for a wide range of platforms.
We are happy to announce today that we have released .NET compatible assemblies which extend support back to Windows 7 SP1 to our beta users. .NET framework /C# assemblies have often been requested by our larger corporate customers due to their clients’ support of legacy systems. Chirp’s data over sound technology can now be used to bridge devices new and old — the only requirements are a loudspeaker and/or a microphone.
Getting started with this framework is as straightforward as with our other SDKs: Set your credentials, set your callbacks and start!
// Create instance
chirpConnect = new ChirpConnectNet.ChirpConnect(
// Set your licence
ChirpError err = chirpConnect.SetLicence("YOUR_CHIRP_LICENCE");// Wire up information events
chirpConnect.Sent += ChirpConnect_Sent;
chirpConnect.Sending += ChirpConnect_Sending;
chirpConnect.Receiving += ChirpConnect_Receiving;
chirpConnect.Received += ChirpConnect_Received;// Start the instance
var startErr = chirpConnect.Start();
We are proud to support a wide range of ultrasonic and audible data over audio technologies, and will continue to ensure that any device capable of making sound can also send data.
Our .NET data over sound SDK can be downloaded now from developers.chirp.io. Each product sends data using audible sound by default, but each is also easily configurable by the developer for ultrasonic data transfer. Like all our SDKs, they are available to use for free for students, startups, academics and charities.
We look forward to seeing what you build — together we will teach the machines to sing!
Chirp is a wireless communication technology that enables data to be transferred via sound, using a device’s existing speaker and microphone. It can use audible or inaudible ultrasonic frequencies, works in the most challenging acoustic environments, and requires no network connection.
