ARK is a set of software building blocks that can help reduce the time it takes to develop hearing aid fitting software. ARKbase is the ARK (Application Resource Kit) "starter kit". It must be installed before any other ARK package (i.e. ARKsdk, ARKfit) is. ARKbase contains all ARK components and several applications constructed using these components. It can be used to evaluate ARK, to learn about ON Semiconductor's latest hardware products, and to test components developed using ARKonline™. ARKbase also includes software that aids in the calibration and configuration of hearing aids that contain ON Semiconductor's digital hybrids, at the manufacturing level.
Important Installation Notes:
It is recommended that you uninstall any prior releases of ARKbase before installing this version of ARKbase.
Users who do not have Windows 2000, Visual Basic 6, or any applications that were developed with Visual Basic 6 installed on their computers must download and install the Microsoft Visual Basic 6 SP4 runtime.
This software is compatible with 32-bit Windows operating systems. Users of Windows 95 must download and install the latest version of DCOM95 from Microsoft Corporation before installing ARKbase.
Important Notes for ARK 5.0.0 and Above:
- Microsoft Visual Basic SPR runtime DCOM95.
- Microsoft Visual Basic 6 SP4 runtime.
Users running Windows XP or 2000 must install the .NET Framework 2.0 from Microsoft
in order to use the iLog application for datalogging on Inspiria GA3285. Selecting the Custom button will display a list of available updates. If the .NET Framework 2.0 is not installed, it will appear in that list. iLog is not supported on Windows 98 or earlier.
