Portland, OR (September 7, 2018)—Audinate has introduced a new line of pre-programmed Dante Adapter Modules for use in designing Dante audio adapters and low-channel count audio devices.
Designed with an eye towards reducing time-to-market, Dante Adapter Modules can be integrated into larger host devices to provide Dante network support without the need for PCB design and manufacturing, component procurement and programming.
The Dante Adapter Modules family contains six models – single and dual-channel analog input, single and dual-channel analog output, 2 in / 2 out AES3, and 2 in / 2 out USB. The modules can be used to create custom-featured adapters or incorporated directly into low-channel count endpoint products such as powered speakers, direct boxes and more.
The modules use the same components as the Dante AVIO adapter family, and are designed for over-molding, clamshell enclosures or mounting on a baseboard, enabling manufacturers to design products with their own physical enclosures, branding, and connectors.
Dante Adapter Modules feature sample rates up to 96 kHz (except USB), user-configurable signal levels (for the analog models), Power over Ethernet, and support for AES67 RTP audio transport. They can also provide a hardware master clock for a Dante network, and are Dante Domain Manager ready.
The USB Adapter Module can also be powered by USB and offers class-compliant audio enabling it to work without additional software drivers on operating systems like Windows, Mac, Linux and iOS and Android.
