CopperLan in brief
CopperLan is a networking system for command & control and streaming management that brings about a comprehensive solution to linking and interfacing pro-audio and musical equipment.
Its powerful virtual network definition can be applied to any physical transport specification present or future as well as running inside a computer, merging all participating members in a single pool.
The CopperLan protocol itself is a quantum leap in the interaction with equipment and applications.
Its full auto-setup, plug and play, universal remote editing, total setup recall, streamlined and unified user interface methods, clear and concrete identification of devices, to name just a few, all witness of its user friendliness.
For Ethernet embedded products, a commercial single-chip solution guarantees the system performance with zero overhead on the application firmware and no development hassle.
High-end hardware can be realized around our Linux embedded implementation.
USB peripherals can be created on the USB-capable microcontroller of choice, thanks to an innovative server/client relation that keeps the heavy part of the job within the computer.
CopperLan is available as a turnkey solution for quick and simple integration into hardware and software products (middleware, virtual network, computer drivers, and reference designs).
The CopperLan system is compatible with MIDI for a smooth MI market integration.
Conceptually engineered from the very start to stand the test of time, it provides room for future proofing expansion.
