Hi Bumpei,

Well - you need not wait unless you choose to.

This year has been one where my time for my audio hobby has been curtailed by a number of things. A new career position, deaths in my family, and taking care of a parent who is now alone.

I have myself gone through a couple of prototypes - so I am not idle - just not yet satisfied.

I basically have started from scratch again last month when XMOS contacted me about their new chip which is now optimized for this application - including an on-chip PHY and power management. This is a very big departure from my initial plan, but much better.

At the moment I am actually waiting on XMOS for some particulars regarding firmware and drivers. This will be a better solution than any of the existing XMOS implementations.

Jan. 1 can't come soon enough - time for a new - much better - year.

Cheers!
Russ

The long and cherished board
That leads to your sounds
Will never disappear
I've seen your post before
It always leads me here
Lead me to your sounds.

The weird windows side
That the gain dashed away
Has left a pool of pears
Twisting for the day.
Why leave me standing here?
Let me know the way.
Many times I've been thrown
And many times I've cried,
Anyway you'll never know
The many ways I've tried.

But today they lead me back
To the long, cherished board
You made me thinking here
A long, long themes are go
Don't blame me for raving here
Lead me to your sounds.

Default Thanks...

For the update Russ. I am taking my time with my new B-IIIse build, to get it "perfect" and to build it integrated with the new USB interface. I will be patient and listen to other stuff in the mean time.
I hope that you will allow for Trident(s) for the oscillators modules on the USB board, this will likely be a popular option, especially for those of use who prefer to run the B-IIIse synchronously...
Best to you for a great 2013!

Default USB2 high speed mode galvanic isolation

This might be interesting for a future version of this adapter. The research from Silana has apparently resulted in a workable device.

Thanks for the heads up. I wonder if/when it will be a commercially viable product?

I expect right now if you contact them at the link below

High Speed Digital Isolators


Silanna is developing a range of digital isolators able to handle high data rates from 100Mb/s to several Gb/s per channel. They are being designed to outperform all products now in the market.

These isolators will provide high voltage (5kV+) galvanic isolation to a new generation of high speed data interfaces.

Furthermore, Silanna's isolators offer the option of integrating high numbers of channels into a single small footprint chip.

Contact us if you have an interest in an application for this product.

Sounds interesting, but at some point one must finally choose which compromises to accept and push development without looking back. For me, there is no interesting program material above 192kHz, but the multi-channel aspect might be interesting paired to a Buffalo III 8 channel. I need 6 minimum - three 2-channel XMOS boards seems a little power-hungry... but doable.

There doesn't have to be material to use sampling rates above 192 Khz. Software upsampling to higher rates can make other material sound better.
