Overview

The Lynx AES16 PCI Card offers excellent AES/EBU channel capacity and routing flexibility in a single add-on PCI card. With support for up to 16 channels of input and output at sample rates up to 192kHz, the AES16 card turns your computer into a powerful digital router or patchbay with extensive flexibility and minimal cabling. Most importantly, the Lynx AES16 supports the emerging single-wire 192kHz standard and is compatible with existing dual-wire AES/EBU devices. Install up to 4 Lynx AES16 PCI Cards in a single computer.

Features
  • 16-channel AES/EBU digital I/O
  • 192kHz / 24-bit single-wire and dual-wire modes
  • SynchroLock jitter attenuation
  • Word clock and multi-card synchronization
  • Powerful mixing and routing engine
  • Low-latency drivers for Windows and Macintosh
Specifications
  • General
    PCI Bus: Version 2.2 compliant
    Data Transfers: Up to 132 MBps using custom 16-channel zero-wait state, scatter-gather DMA engine Bus mastering supported
    Size: 5.0"H X 7.4"W X 0.75"D (half-size PCI card)

    Digital I/O
    Number/Type: 8 stereo inputs and 8 stereo outputs, 24-bit AES/EBU format, transformer coupled
    Channels: 16 in/out in single-wire mode
    Sample rates: All standard rates and variable rates up to 192kHz in both single-wire and dual-wire modes

    Architecture
    Core: FPGA-based core contains custom PCI interface, data routing and formatting, device control, digital mixing, clock routing and control, and a DMA engine; 256KB of onboard RAM for data buffering; support for field upgrades of firmware
    Audio devices: Card is visible to host applications as 8 record devices and 8 play devices (Each device has two channels and can be used independently for multi-client functionality)

    Clocking
    Sources: Digital inputs 1-4, external word clock (with XLR cables only) on BNC, internal word clock on header, onboard low-jitter crystal oscillator
    SynchroLock: Multi-stage, VCXO-based clock generation system with high jitter attenuation (Wide mode tracks off-frequency clocks, narrow mode generates ultra-low jitter output for standard frequencies)

    Onboard digital mixer
    Type: hardware-based, low latency
    Routing: Ability to route any input to any or multiple outputs
    Mixing: up to four input or playback signals mixed to any output, 40-bit precision
    Status: peak levels to -114dB on all inputs and outputs

    LStream expansion ports
    Compatibility: Supports Lynx LStream expansion cards including the LS-ADAT 16-channel ADAT I/O card
    Type: High-speed serial, up to 16 channels @ 24-bits on 14-pin internal connector

    Connections
    I/O ports: Two bracket-mounted 26-pin high-density female D-sub connectors (Can be configured to support eight channel or four channel AES connections)
    External clock: 75-Ohm BNC word clock input and output provided on XLR cable set
    Internal clock: Two 75-ohm board-mounted 2-pin headers for word clock input and output

    Software
    Windows Drivers: for Windows 2000 / XP platforms: MME, ASIO 2.0, WDM, DirectSound, Direct Kernel Streaming, and GSIF
    Macintosh Drivers: CoreAudio for OSX
    Mixer Application: multi-window GUI provides complete control of digital mixer and all hardware settings
