FireWire Controller Enables High End Audio

Compatible with both IEEE1394A and FireWire 800 interfaces, the OXFW970 audio controller is designed to create high-quality surround-sound systems within Macintosh and Windows environments. The device, offered as an alternative to USB approaches, provides eight digital audio output channels and can receive and process 32-bit data, sampled at 48 kHz at streaming speeds up to 100 MB/s. Exploiting the FireWire interface's power source, speaker configurations do not require an external power supply. Other features include an integrated ARM7TDMI processor, buffer manager, UART and JTAG ports, eight programmable GPIO pins, and support for remote programming of the device's 512 kb of flash memory.
