  • Publication number: 20220253300
    Abstract: An external communication unit receives, from a server, update information including information indicating an update target device whose software is to be updated among devices and information indicating a generation source device among the devices, the generation source device being installed with generation source software that is a source for generating update data to be used for updating update target software installed in the update target device. An update data generating unit generates, on the basis of the update information, the update data using the generation source software installed in a host device of the update data generating unit, when the host device is the generation source device. A software update unit updates, on the basis of the update information, the update target software installed in a host device of the software update unit using the generated update data, when the host device is the update target device.

    Abstract: Communication devices and systems with correct regeneration of an audio signal are disclosed. In one example, a communication device measures a number of predetermined reference clocks included in one cycle of a frequency divided signal, on the basis of an audio master clock having a frequency obtained by multiplying a frequency of a sampling clock to sample an audio signal, a frequency division ratio of a frequency divided signal of the audio master clock, and a predetermined reference clock. A packet generator generates a packet including information including the measured number, a bit width of serial data (SD) conforming to an Inter-IC Sound (I2S) standard, the frequency of the sampling clock, a frequency division ratio of the frequency divided signal to the audio master clock, a frequency ratio of the frequency of the audio master clock to the frequency of the sampling clock, and the SD.
