Dante Embedded Platform | Audinate | AV's Leading Networking Technology

Announcing: Dante Embedded Platform for i.MX 8M

The Dante Embedded Platform Reference Design Kit for NXP’s i.MX 8M Mini QuadLite processor is validated by Audinate for Dante performance, and lets OEMs design with confidence.

It supports up to 64x64 lossless audio channels with latency between 2ms and 10ms and is fully interoperable with all other Dante-enabled products and Dante tools such as Dante Controller, Dante Virtual Soundcard, and Dante Domain Manager.

Bringing AV-as-software to life


Deliver powerful, flexible and cost-effective software-based products that come with Dante audio networking already on board.

Dante Embedded Platform addresses emerging needs for an industry transitioning to a more software-focused model of system and product design, providing the tools manufacturers need to make AV as software a reality.

Dante Embedded Platform lets you build the world’s leading audio networking solution directly into your Linux-based products using your UX paradigm for seamlessly integrated workflows. With minimal additional hardware and low marginal costs, Dante Embedded Platform preserves the smallest product footprint while enabling OEMs to deliver in-field software upgrades, so your products and your customers stay up-to-date.

Dante Embedded Platform Introduction


Develop with confidence


Dante Embedded Platform is designed to work in products that run Linux on compact ARM processors as well as large, powerful x86 CPUs, and includes tools that eliminate costly guesswork.

Dante Embedded Platform is ideal for developing families of interoperable products that range from petite ARM-based products up to large, x86-based designs that deliver high channel counts with low, deterministic latency.

Plug into the Dante ecosystem


Dante is the leading AV-over-IP solution in the world, with over 2000 interoperable products available from more than 430 manufacturers of AV gear.

With Dante in your applications, users get immediate access to any and all of these devices, making it easy to select equipment that suits every need.
