NEXUS DSP & Controller Card XACI
The XACI board is designed as a universal board for advanced interface solutions, protocol converters, intelligent interfaces and other such tasks. Typical interfaces such as USB and Ethernet as well as an optional SSD hard disk make countless applications for the computer-like module conceivable.
NEXUS – XACI – The concept:
With the XACI board, NEXUS users have a board at their disposal that meets universal requirements with an integrated processor and an optional SSD hard disk. Depending on the programming implemented, the card performs complex interface functions such as working as an EMBER+ gateway or as a web server that is tailored for dedicated applications such as the remote web control of the ON AIR Flex mixing console, etc.
Devices that exchange bidirectional control commands and statuses with the NEXUS system can be connected via the USB and Ethernet ports. Almost unlimited amounts of data can be stored on the SSD hard disk, which can be transferred to or output from the system as required.
NEXUS – XACI – Features:
Self-sufficient computer system To implement dedicated control solutions, the XACI card contains a self-sufficient computer system (SMARC) with an ARM processor as central unit.
USB and Ethernet interfaces Communication can take place via the two USB or three Ethernet interfaces.
Optional memory expansion through SSD hard disk
For applications that require larger amounts of data, an SSD hard drive can be mounted in the designated mSata slot in addition to the integrated 4 GB RAM memory.
Buffered supply voltage The SMARC computer system is buffered by a capacitor to ensure that access and write operations can be safely terminated.
Electronic fuse of the module The XACI card is protected by an electronic fuse. When this is activated, the module is deactivated until the next switch-off/on. This state is indicated by an LED.
NEXUS – XACI – Use cases:
Connection of the ON-AIR-flex system Workflows are increasingly being adapted to IP technology. For the EmBER+ control protocol, the XACI board is a starting point for controlling the input parameters of the microphone inputs or switching crosspoints. As a multi-function board with control intelligence, the XACI board can be the host for the On Air flex modular mixing console system, connecting the control modules and communicating control commands to the XCMC mixing console board in which DSP-based audio processing is performed.
