Send any data with sound.

Chirp technology encodes data into a series of audible or inaudible near-ultrasonic pitches and tones to form a ‘sonic barcode’. Data is encoded on a sending device before being transmitted, over the air, to a receiving device, or group of devices where it is decoded.

Chirp's technology suite of interoperable standard SDKs works on many different technology platforms and they can develop custom SDKs for our partner's specific requirements. Powerful error correction and patent-pending decoder technology makes Chirp technology bulletproof.


Why audio data encoding
• Does not require an existing audio signal to operate on.
• Encode and decode information in real-time, without external components
• Good fit for compact, dynamic payloads - appropriate for creating network-like communication links between devices
• Relatively high throughput making it suitable security-critical applications


Developer friendly
Easy to set up and integrate in an app or product.

Arduino
Arduino
Arduino is an open-source prototyping platform based on easy-to-use hardware and software. Arduino boards are able to read inputs - light on a sensor, a finger on a button, or a Twitter message - and turn it into an output - activating a motor, turning on an LED, publishing something online. All this is defined by a set of instructions programmed through the Arduino software. Arduino was born at the Ivrea Interaction Design Institute as an easy tool for fast prototyping, aimed at students without a background in electronics and programming. As soon as it reached a wider community, the Arduino board started changing to adapt to new needs and challenges, differentiating its offer from simple 8-bit boards to products for IoT applications, wearable, 3D printing, and embedded environments.
