Audinate and ADI Partner for Dante Embedded Platform for SHARC DSPs

danteAudinate, the Dante audio networking technology platform company, and Analog Devices (ADI) have collaborated to introduce something they’re calling the Dante Embedded Platform (DEP) for ADI’s SHARC audio digital signal processors (DSPs).

The collaboration is made possible by Audinate’s introduction of DEP — which offers Dante audio-over-IP as on-chip software. By adding DEP to the SHARC ADSP-SC5xx, manufacturers can deliver Dante connectivity with high performance, low latency and deterministic audio processing. The result is a single-chip solution.

Dante Embedded Platform provides software-based solutions with Dante audio networking already on board. The result is interoperability with Dante-enabled products — from hundreds of OEMs — already installed.

The Dante Embedded Platform for Analog Devices’ ADSP-SC5xx DSPs is validated by Audinate for Dante performance and enables OEMs to design for Dante. The ADSP-SC5xx offers an ARM Cortex core, up to two SHARC audio DSPs with high on-chip RAM and audio connectivity peripherals. This is designed for AV-over-IP applications and provides a single-chip system solution.

Additionally, ADI says the SHARC DSPs provide an existing ecosystem of audio processing algorithms enabled by Analog Devices’ Sigma Studio graphical programming environment that shortens customer time to market.

The Dante Embedded Platform SDK for Analog Devices’ ADSP-SC5xx processors is expected to be available by the end of May 2021.
