Making systems scalable. That’s the job of Solaro XIO: the next-generation of Input/Output Expansion Frames from Xilica.
Designed to ensure Solaro & X2 DSP configurations are future-proof, and to continue the mantra of total flexibility introduced by these two revolutionary modular processor platforms, XIO features a dual model configuration. XIO 8 is an eight card slot, quarter-rack-width Expansion Frame, accepting all 1U Solaro I/O Option Cards, whilst XIO 16 is a 16 card slot, full rack width, 1U Expansion Frame.
XIO 8 offers a number of convenient, small-format mounting options to expand channel count in low-profile applications. The product delivers 4×4 Dante networked audio, with Ethernet and Dante RJ45 connections, alongside PoE powering capabilities. Its larger brother, XIO 16, offers an expanded 32×32 of Dante networked audio, with standard 19″ rack mounting.
- Deliver lower cost per input, and advanced system configurations with card-slot based Expansion Frames.
- Bring Expansion Frames directly into specific rooms, creating new overflow capabilities and signal transportation across a facility.
- Accept common Solaro Series I/O Option Cards, including two-channel analog audio in, analog audio out, AES/EBU and four channel GPIO.
- Expand a system's Dante capabilities with either 4x4 or 32x32 send/receive Dante transmission.
