Re: [linrad] Gibson Magic and their ADSP-21065L SHARC DSP -Based Evaluation Board
I ran across something in the digital audio world today that is very
unusual [at least to me], and I am not sure that it has any direct
application to Linrad. But since it is a means for moving wideband
'audio' around very quickly, I thought some list members might find
it useful or interesting. By wideband I mean "MaGIC uses
state-of-the-art technology to provide up to 32 channels of 32-bit
bi-directional high-fidelity audio with sample rates up to 192 kHz",
to quote from their information sheet.
Joe Keer, W3KJ, pointed out 'Gibson Magic' to me today.
Its a standard/system being championed by the Gibson Guitar Company to
set standards for the professional world in terms of networks for
digital audio devices and data transfer. They have a set of
evaluation boards using an AD ADSP-21065L SHARC DSP and 8 channel
audio with 24 bit CODECs.
The evaluation kit includes the DSP board, 8x8 Analog I/O, 40 pin
ribbon cable, power supply, documentation and application CD and
getting started guide. Apps include Router/Mixer and a suite of test
applications for the engineer. (sine gen, loopback, enumeration,
etc.). This requires a PC with a Serial port.
This is raw stuff, but I thought some on the list might find it
interesting, particularly those [not necessarily in the music
industry] who need to move large chunks of 'audio' data over their
networks and control various 'devices' remotely as well. Some of the
Specs [for the MAGIC standard] [with link to pdf file]

Feel free to email me to let me know if you find this interesting, or
if you think I've misposted and wasted your bandwidth.
