SigmaStudio and SigmaDSP Documentation

Welcome to the Analog Devices SigmaStudio Graphical Development Tool!

SigmaStudio was developed specifically for use with our SigmaDSP audio processors. Recently, support was also added for SHARC processors. This graphical development environment allows engineers with little or no DSP coding experience to add quality digital signal processing to their designs. In addition, it allows experienced engineers to quickly create complicated signal flows while at the same time focusing on more complex signal processing algorithms. SigmaStudio offers a variety of signal processing blocks that can be wired together, as in a schematic, and generate production-ready code while providing a graphical control surface for fine tuning parameters.

This tool was originally tailored for engineers tasked with migrating analog sound processing systems to digital ones; yet it is powerful enough to satisfy more experienced DSP designers. SigmaStudio can help users reduce development times, lower costs without sacrificing quality or performance.

  • See what's new in the latest release of SigmaStudio.
  • To get started, follow the Quick Start guide.
  • To see what SigmaStudio can do, check out the tutorials.

SigmaStudio is currently compatible with the Windows XP (Service Pack 3), Windows Vista, and Windows 7, Windows 10 operating systems. Windows 8 support development is in progress, but at present, SigmaStudio will not work on Windows 8.

Before using SigmaStudio, read the SigmaStudio End User License Agreement.

Feature Wishlist

Feature Wishlist for requesting additional functionality in SigmaStudio

Bitwise logic support for ADAU170x chip

  • Description : SigmaStudio only includes “normal” logic for ADAU170x. The bitwise logic would be extremely useful for applications like Differentiated Parabolic Waveform generators in order to simplify phase handling of master sawtooth oscillators
  • Notes : N/A
  • Developer feedback :

Zero phase on VCO ON/OFF command

  • Description : when a VCO is turned OFF, it is simply a switch forcing the output signal to 0. The oscillator keeps running and when the VCO is turned ON, the sinus signal phase is completely random. The zero phase feature should allow the sinus phase to be reset when the switch goes from OFF to ON
  • Notes : N/A
