Audinate announces Dante adapter module range
Audinate has announced the availability of Dante Adapter Modules, designed for the production of manufacturer-branded Dante audio adapters and low-channel count audio devices.
Dante Adapter Modules are pre-programmed and can be integrated into larger host devices to provide Dante network support without the need for PCB design and manufacturing, component procurement and programming, reducing time-to-market.
The Dante Adapter Modules family contains 6 models – single and dual-channel analog input, single and dual-channel analog output, 2 in / 2 out AES3, and 2 in / 2 out USB. These 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.
Using the same high-quality field-tested components as the Dante AVIO adapter family, Dante Adapter Modules enable fast development of professional audio products with proven components. The modules 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 are fully-functional Dante devices which can provide a hardware master clock for a Dante network, and are also 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.
