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.

Powerful mixing and routing engine
Low-latency drivers for Windows and Macintosh
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)
