A new DSP design using the programmable, low-power TMS320C5000 platform supports Windows Media Format and digital rights management. The chip enables MP3 players to be programmable, with software upgrades supporting future products. Windows Media provides consumers the ability to create and store up to twice as much CD-quality music as other formats on portable audio players. The firm will also provide free licensing of the Windows Media Format and DRM to its OEMs. Chip-level support for Windows Media and the Windows Media Device Manager is expected to make it easier for OEMs to overcome licensing barriers and complex technical porting efforts.
