Cirrus Logic is developing Gigabit Ethernet audio chips, with the aim of sending hundreds of uncompressed audio streams over the wire at the same time. The chips will supercharge the company's existing CobraNet audio networking technology, and enable heavyweight audio users to aggregate as many as 600 or 700 professional-grade sound channels onto a single connection. "The current generation uses 100Mbit/s switched Ethernet, and allows 64 channels in and out of each network node - many facilities now want bigger networks though," said CobraNet marketeer Steve Bassett.
