PCI Express AM/FM/RDS tuner card
This PCI Express (PCIe) card joins the Audio Science broadcast tuner line. The ASI8821 has the same functionality as its existing cousin, the ASI8921, including half-length PCI size, AM and FM de-emphasis, and RDS/RDBS metadata monitoring. An F connector feeds RF signal from an external antenna to all tuners on the ASI8921. On the AM/FM module, each tuner may also be fed from an external antenna input per tuner. An HD50 connector makes available the mono or stereo line level audio of each tuner output. Drivers are provided for Windows 7, XP, Server 2003/2008 and Linux. 64-bit drivers are available for Windows 7 and Linux. SDKs are available for Windows and Linux using standard APIs such as DirectSound or ALSA, or the proprietary AudioScience HPI and ASX interfaces.
