Audio card specialist AudioScience is aiming high with its new ASI5812 card. The new PCIe card is capable of generating a 192 kHz MPX signal for direct HD Radio duties.
The ASI5812 offers two stereo record streams from either a balanced analog input or AES/EBU digital input and four stereo play streams mixed to a balanced analog output and two AES/EBU digital outputs. The second AES/EBU output includes a sample rate converter and independent sample rate clock.
Sample rates range from 11–192 kHz. Conversion is at 24-bit.
Other features include GPIO in the form of four opto-isolated inputs, two relay isolated outputs and AudioScience’s MRX multiple sample rate mixing technology. Up to eight cards can be handled at one time. Windows and Linux drivers are available.
