The USB Multi-Channel Audio U16 Platform is a complete development hardware and reference software solution for multi-channel USB audio applications.
The hardware platform uses the XS1-U16 multicore microcontroller; an XMOS xCORE-USBâ„¢ device with an integrated High Speed USB 2.0 PHY and 16 logical cores delivering 1000MIPS of deterministic and responsive processing power.
Exploiting the flexible programmability of the xCOREâ„¢ architecture, the platform supports USB audio streaming of up to 20 channels at 192kHz, and includes 18in/8out audio mixing functionality.
The guaranteed Hardware-Responseâ„¢ times of xCORE technology always ensure low latency (round trip as low as 3ms), bit perfect audio streaming to and from the USB host.
Delivered as source code, the reference software provides a fully featured production ready solution, including support for: Full- and High-Speed USB operation, USB Audio Class 2.0 & 1.0, MIDI, HID and DFU classes.

Designing USB Audio 2.0 products
The USB Multi-Channel Audio U16 platform is based on the XS1-USB device. We recommend that new USB Audio 2.0 designs should be based on xCORE-200 XU (USB) devices instead of xCORE-USB devices. See the xCORE-200 USB Audio Multichannel Platform.
