The bit Drive software application is Audison’s latest tool for calibration, configuration, and tuning bit DSP processors in the automotive environment. It is compatible with select Audison bit devices:
AF C8.14 bit
AF M12.14 bit
AF M5.11 bit
AF C4.10 bit
AF M8.14 bit
Future bit devices will added as they are introduced, thanks to the “future-proof” architecture of the bit Drive software.
Using bit Drive software successfully involves the following steps:
1. Software and firmware
Installing the software
Updating the bit device firmware to the latest firmware
Opening the bit Drive software and updating to the latest version
2. Configuring the bit device for first use.
3. Input and Output Setup using the Configuration Wizard
The Configuration Wizard includes automated testing for Polarity, EQ, and delay on the input signals. The user can elect to use the Wizard’s automated correction for EQ and Delay, or perform those manually in the next step.
4. Using the Input tools, including the Electrical RTA
to confirm the automated signal correction and add phase correction if needed. Also, if the automated process was skipped over in Step 3, the de-EQ, de-Time, and de-Phase processes can all be performed in Step 4.
5. Using the Output tools
including the Acoustic RTA, to achieve the desired acoustic result (“tuning”).
6. Configuring optional functions of the bit device.
