PORTLAND, Ore. (Embedded Linux Conference), March 14, 2018 – The Linux Foundation announced today that Sound Open Firmware (SOF) has become a Linux Foundation project. With significant engineering and code contributions from Intel® Corporation, SOF includes a digital signal processing (DSP) firmware and an SDK that together provide infrastructure and development tools for developers working on audio or signal processing. Intel and Google support SOF and invite others to join them in advancing the project.
Today at the 2018 Embedded Linux* Conference, I introduced ACRN* and the Sound Open Firmware (SOF) projects to the Linux community. I’m excited about the launch of these projects— they both address industry requirements for open solutions and empower developers to accelerate innovation.
