Audinate today 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 integratabtle 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, two-in / two-out AES3 and two-in / two-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 field-tested components as the Dante AVIO adapter family, the Dante Adapter 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 excellent audio performance, 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 most popular operating systems like Windows, Mac, Linux and iOS and Android.
