AVB endpoint module

Post by fabra »

Hi folks,
I've build an avb endpoint module that can be manufactured in small series now. Thought it could be interesting for some of you, too.
It is based on the AVB reference design. My desire was to optimise the form factor and to provide flexible IO options like ADAT, SPDIF, AES3, analog, ...
More information can be found on my homepage/webshop: www.joyned.online
Looking forward to get some feedback.
Cheers,
Fabian

Looks cool. I see you support Milan interoperability specification ... just wondering if this code is up on github or if it's proprietary?

AAF support is available here: https://github.com/fabra/lib_tsn/tree/aaf/and I started to work on CRF. For full Milan support there is a lot of work left to do, but it is a starting point.
The code above can be run on the standard XMOS eval board.

Super, thank you. I am not fully up on Milan, does it specify 32 bit AAF only? I'd be most interested in 24 bit AAF.

Yes, Milan specifies 32Bit AAF. So I would recommend to use that format in your system as well. What would be the reason for you tuse use 24Bit?

(However, addding support for 24Bit AAF should be straight forward, if really needed.)

The reason I would be interested in 24 bit AAF is to pack 30% more channels in the same 100 Mbps daisy chain my hardware already supports. My effective number of bits is around 20 best case so I really don't need more than 24 bit transport.

this looks cool, the price is for the hardware only or a piece of simple source code to enabled AVB will be provided?

The module is delivered with flashed software.
You can build your own software based on XMOS' AVB reference design.

If you are interested to run your own software on it, we can discuss options. Please feel free to send me a PN.
