Security and Connectivity for the IoT Edge


RomPlug® DTCP

Our suite of development toolkits offers flexible and robust technology to build state of the art UPnP and DLNA enabled consumer electronics and mobile devices.

RomPlug® Application Development Toolkits for Connected CE

Consumers now acquire, enjoy and manage an ever-increasing amount of digital content with consumer electronics. The scale, options, and size of content will only grow over the coming years as consumers look to UPnP and DLNA technology to deliver a seamless interoperable network throughout the home. Allegro’s RomPlug® suite of development toolkits offers your engineering team flexible and robust tools to create state of the art UPnP and DLNA enabled consumer electronics and mobile devices. Engineers save time and money with Allegro’s proven and stable implementations of industry standard protocols that comprise the UPnP and DLNA architecture. Allegro’s RomPlug® Core toolkits along with the Internet Gateway (IGD), Media (DMP, DMS, DMR, and DMC) and Link Protection (DTCP) toolkits all meet the latest interoperability guidelines and are field-proven in shipping products as well as ongoing industry interoperability plugfests.

System Requirements

    • Processor Architecture – Agnostic to any 16-bit, 32-bit or 64-bit processor
    • Operating System (OS) – Agnostic to OS vendor and will function without an OS if needed
    • TCP/IP Stack – Agnostic
    • Filesystem – Agnostic to vendor implementation and will function without a filesystem if needed
    • Compiler – ANSI C
