Audinate announced the availability Monday of a reference design kit for Dante Embedded Platform on the NXP i.MX 8M Mini QuadLite SoC, which provides Dante audio-over-IP to OEMs as on-chip software. This means we will see these solutions as final products in Q1 2021.
Solutions developed for standard computing hardware platforms such as ARM are increasingly becoming the most cost-effective and flexible way to design and deliver AV products. With Dante Embedded Platform, Audinate provides a means to deliver Dante AV-over-IP technology in these modern software-driven devices. With minimal additional hardware and low marginal costs, Dante Embedded Platform fits where other hardware solutions won’t, giving manufacturers and customers alike immediate connectivity to thousands of available Dante-enabled products from hundreds of OEMs.
The Dante Embedded Platform Reference Design Kit for NXP’s i.MX 8M Mini QuadLite processor is validated by Audinate for Dante performance and lets OEMs design with confidence. It supports up to 64×64 lossless audio channels with latency between 2ms and 10ms. It is also fully interoperable with all other Dante-enabled products and Dante tools such as Dante Controller, Dante Virtual Soundcard and Dante Domain Manager.
The Dante Embedded Platform Reference Design Kit for i.MX 8M Mini QuadLite is available for order now and will be shipping July 2020.
