Real-time operating system (RTOS), networking and MP3 software have been bundled together to provide OEMs with the means for rapidly developing a host of new Web-enabled audio products- demand for MP3 audio players is expected to mushroom from 1.5 million units this year to 7.8 million in 2001. The software suite includes Microware’s OS-9 RTOS and Java technologies, Espial Group’s Kalos development tools and Internet Application Suite, and MpegTV LLC's Xaudio MPEG technology. The suite offers a complete software solution to developers of embedded Internet-enabled audio devices.
