Audinate, developer of the Dante AV networking technology, has announced the availability of a software development kit (SDK) for manufacturers of Arm-based audio products.
The Dante SDK lets manufacturers deploy Dante audio networking as on-chip software in their products, reducing costs and conserving on space while delivering world-class audio performance.
The Dante Embedded Platform SDK provides the tools needed to develop Dante-enabled products built upon 32- and 64-bit Arm Cortex-A processors using a Linux operating system, and supports online license activation for OEMs. The SDK allows manufacturers to validate their own designs for performance and capability, ensuring solid reliability for end users.
“We’re very pleased to offer the first SDK for Dante as software,” says Nick Mariette, Product Manager at Audinate.
“We’re just beginning to see the changes brought to the AV industry through families of software-based products. Arm-based audio devices are incredibly flexible and cost effective, and now Dante can be integrated in to deliver a truly great customer experience.”
In addition to the Dante support for Arm Cortex-A processors, Audinate says that it is working on a Dante Embedded Platform SDK for x86-based audio products. This SDK should be coming shortly, according to the company.
