An Overview of UVC and UAC class and USB Video Conferencing Device with Aikri-QCS610 Platform

Universal Serial Bus popularly known as USB is a Plug and Play interface used for computers to communicate with diverse types of USB peripherals. Keyboards, Mouses, Joysticks, Speakers, Webcams, External Drives are common USB devices. The underlying mechanisms for each of these devices are different. Some of them are mass storage devices, video devices, audio devices while others are human interface devices. UVC stands for USB Video Class and can transmit video over USB, similarly UAC stands for USB Audio Class and can transmit audio over USB. When user plugs a UVC/UAC device to the host, configuration, and enumeration of UVC/UAC device at host will be completed and its capabilities advertised to the host. USB Camera and USB Headset is an example of UVC and UAC Device, respectively.

Understanding the Dolby Digital Decoder (AC3) Technology

The Audio Encoders and Decoders are basically compression algorithms for multichannel audio, meant for storing/streaming music and the audio part of movies, with lesser storage place/bandwidth than the original content. Dolby Digital Decoder is one such algorithm developed by Dolby Digital Laboratories. The Encoders are almost, always used at the recording end in the studios, where the sound/music is created, to encode/compress the sound. The Decoders are generally present at the infotainment end, like home theater systems and car infotainment systems. The article here, describes the basic building blocks of the Dolby Digital (AC3) Decoder algorithm.
