My understanding is that implementations of AMBE require a license, and most/all? of the implementations are in hardware. If you want to make a vocoder you buy a chip manufactured under a license. If that is true, even SDR radios would require a hardware AMBE vocoder, not certain. Perhaps the algorithm could be reverse engineered... but a compression algorithm is different than sniffing a network protocol.
Perhaps PNW Digital purchased their own AMBE license, to make their own high-quality hardware.
