Audinate has announced the immediate availability of the Dante Analog Output Module, a complete, small form factor PCB that allows for rapid development of Dante-to-analog endpoints. Manufacturers can use this module in a variety of small footprint enclosures with appropriate analog connectors to rapidly bring finished products to market.
The Dante Analog Output Module supports one RJ45 Dante input, and one or two balanced analog outputs. The module can receive audio channels from a Dante network and provide studio-quality, low-latency audio via balanced output connectors to analog audio equipment. Any audio available on the Dante network can be routed via the outputs to an amplifier, powered speaker, mixing console, digital signal processor (DSP) or other analog audio device. Adapters (for example XLR-to-RCA and XLR-to-phono) can be used to connect to audio equipment without the required built-in connectors.
The Dante Analog Output Module features a high-quality digital-to-analog converter and supports a range of sample rates and bit depths. It can provide a hardware master clock for a Dante network. Other features include:
- Compact form factor
- Complete board for rapid product development
- One or two output channels
- Supported sample rates of 44.1 kHz, 48 kHz (default), and 96 kHz
- Power-over-Ethernet (POE)
