  EBS announces Control Point SDK for managing UPnP Certified Devices

  Groton, MA - August 16, 2004


EBS, Inc., an established provider of embedded Internet software since 1987 and a current member of the UPnP Forum, announces the release of their Software Development Kit for developing Control Point applications to manage UPnP certified devices. The highly portable SDK is designed specifically for resource crunched embedded systems. This small and robust SDK makes developing customized UPnP control point applications fast and easy.

The UPnP architecture is a distributed, open networking architecture which uses existing Internet standards and languages like TCP/IP, HTTP and XML to transparently enable peer-to-peer networking, in addition to control and data transfer among networked devices in the home, office and public spaces. The architecture enables control points to discover and control devices on a network, independent of particular operating systems, programming languages or physical network connections.

EBS SDK for UPnP Control Point sits on EBS's porting layer RTPlatform, which makes it independent of the underlying operating system or kernel. This gives developers the flexibility to choose the best platform for their device and still be confident that their products will be able to interact with the UPnP certified devices, regardless of their platform. The EBS SDK is 100% ANSI-C, easy to implement, lightweight, and can run in single thread or multi-thread mode.

"We are pleased to add UPnP control point SDK to our UPnP product offering," said Vikram Malaiya, UPnP product manager for EBS Inc. "This lightweight SDK will provide the developers with much needed flexibility in designing customized control point applications. Our SDK brings to the table features like extreme portability, easy to use APIs, tiny footprint, and comprehensive documentation which will make it stand out among the available UPnP solutions."

EBS SDKs for UPnP Certified devices are available now. For pricing please call or contact:
