GAO Research Inc.'s Software Modem Replaces Chipset in CEIVA's Connected Digital Photo Frame.

October 12, 2007 (PRLEAP.COM) Technology News
Toronto, Canada –– GAO Research Inc. (, a leading provider of embedded communication software, announced today that it has licensed its embedded modem software solution to CEIVA Logic Inc. ( for use in its patented connected digital photo frame.

In order to provide connectivity for the device's automatic online photo updates, the suite of GAO modules chosen by CEIVA includes ITU-T standards V.34 compliant softmodem, V.42 error correction software, as well as various telephony modules and Linux drivers. The software allows the digital photo frame to be plugged into an existing phone line and silently dial a local number each night to pick up or send new photos, without interruption to one's phone service, and without charges to the line.

"This is a typical scenario we encounter with many of our customers," said Dr. Frank Gao, president of GAO Research Inc. “By replacing the modem chipset in their design with GAO's highly optimized software solution, CEIVA is able to achieve significant cost savings."

Jim Sepe, Chief Technology Officer, at CEIVA logic said, "When CEIVA decided to upgrade our connected digital photo frames and switch from a hardware to a software based solution, we needed to ensure we retained functionality and remained highly competitive. Our choice of GAO’s software modem solution allowed us to do both." Sepe also commented that, “CEIVA is very pleased with the results. The optimization and performance of GAO software far exceeded our expectations and their after sales support is excellent.”

GAO’s embedded soft-modem and fax packages include a full range of ITU-T compliant modem and fax data pumps and protocols. Modem data pumps include V.92, V.90, V.34, V.32bis/V.32, V.22bis/V.22, V.21, and other standards. Fax data pumps include V.34, V.17, V.29, V.27ter, and V.21 ch.2. GAO’s embedded modem and fax software are fully optimized to run on DSPs and microprocessor platforms including Texas Instruments C5000 and C6000 series, Analog Devices ADSP 218x and Blackfin, ARM7, ARM9/E, and Pentium among others.
