VIA has launched the VIA Vinyl Envy VT1730 USB 2.0 Audio Controller, the industry’s first ever 2.0 audio controller.
The 8-channel, 24-bit/192kHz chip is built on several key modules
which include a 8032 MCU core, USB transceiver, five I2C masters, one
slave controller, an I2S controller, a serial flash controller, four
SPI ports, phase locked loop (PLLs) with internal oscillator, and a 3.3
V~2.0V regulator. The controller is ideal for streaming vast amount of
audio data between a host system and audio I/O system through the USB
interface for USB sound cards, headphones, audio hubs, recording
consoles, and MIDI devices.
“Over 10 years of experience in the audio component industry and
extensive knowledge of peripheral interfaces has enabled this
technology breakthrough,” said Richard Brown, Vice President of
Marketing, VIA Technologies. “Audio enrichment, through our successful
VIA Vinyl Audio line of controllers and codecs, has long been a core
element of VIA’s multimedia product focus, and the VIA Envy VT1730
further extends our reach beyond the PC into high-end audio systems.”
