Audinate has unveiled the Dante Brooklyn II audio networking module cost-effective, high-performance application of its Dante digital media network and control system.

The Dante Brooklyn II module is a low-height, small mini-PCI form factor module that provides a ready-to-use Dante interface for a networked audio product, with the addition of a range of new features and interfaces for even more flexibility of design. Brooklyn II is also designed to be upgradeable to AVB networking standards. ’We have a wide variety of customers, with more signing up every day, using Dante in new and exciting audio products and solutions,’ says Mary Cudmore, Director of Products. ‘Our new Brooklyn II module is designed to deliver a rich set of features and functionality that our OEM customers can use to create their own innovative Dante-enabled solution, in a configurable, efficient and cost-effective package.’

Brooklyn II’s features include sample rate support from 44.1kHz to 192kHz, up to eight configurable serial audio lines, a range of module interfaces (including SPI, I2C, serial ports and configurable GPIO), plus a choice of single, redundant or multiport switched Ethernet network implementations, including an AVB-compliant option.

As the latest addition to the Audinate Dante product range, Brooklyn II interoperates with all other Dante devices, including the Dante Virtual Soundcard, incorporating all the core Dante features such as low latency, tight synchronisation, and automatic device discovery and system configuration for simple network set-up.

The Dante Brooklyn II module supports product development by providing all the core networking and control functions needed for products like DSP processors, amplifiers, digital snakes and break‐in/break‐out boxes. In addition to high performance Dante audio networking functions, the module contains an embedded microprocessor for control functions and allows manufacturers to run applications directly on the module.

Manufacturers can use the Dante control and monitoring framework to easily and quickly develop product specific or vendor specific control functions like gain control and metering on the underlying hardware without having to develop a complete control protocol implementation.
