miniDSP’s nanoSHARC 2×8 Plug-In is Now Live

HONG KONG, Sept. 14, 2018 – miniDSP (, a market leading designer and manufacturer of digital signal processing platforms and solutions for a wide range of applications, is proud to announce that the nanoSHARC 2×8 plug-in is now live.

“The nanoSHARC 2×8 plug-in is a DSP configuration for the nanoSHARC kit platform,” explained Tony Rouget, miniDSP CEO. “Fitted with the ability to process FIR filter banks, the plug-in also packs the most important algorithms. At the input side, one can select source between USB Audio (up to 192kHz streaming), Toslink (up to 192kHz), or I2S (Master mode). With its 2×8 matrix mixer, one can easily route and mix any inputs to any outputs to build a wide range of applications (2/3/4-way configurations).”

The nanoSHARC is a tiny yet extremely powerful and flexible digital audio processing circuit board intended for OEM applications and advanced DIY enthusiasts. It includes an onboard optical digital input and asynchronous USB audio input. Audio output and additional audio inputs are provided by the system integrator via I2S interfaces.

The nanoSHARC’s upgraded on-board 400 MHz Analog Devices SHARC ADSP21489 processor enables substantial processing upgrades previously available only on more expensive platforms, such as high-resolution audio capability and assignable FIR filter taps for sophisticated equalization, crossover, and room correction capabilities. All are accessed and programmed with miniDSP’s easy-to-use interface software. I/O capabilities get an upgrade too, with the addition of USB audio streaming up to 192 kHz and a TOSLINK digital input. With all I/O from XMOS and SHARC DSP exposed on headers, the nanoSHARC is opening a new arena of DIY/OEM application.

“The nanoSHARC is an evolution of miniDSP’s existing audio processing solutions,” Rouget concluded.
