[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
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 URL's are:

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.
