Nov 21, 2014 4:39 PM
COSTA MESA, CALIF.�Lynx Studio Technology''s new line of PCI Express Cards will be available in December.
The first two offerings are the E44 and E22 cards, which combine the connectivity of the Lynx AES16e PCI Express card with the audio quality of the Lynx Aurora converters, according to the company.
The E44 offers four analog input and output channels and four AES/EBU channels, expanding on the I/O offered by the LynxTWO-A card. The E22 offers two analog input and output channels and two AES/EBU channels, essentially the equivalent of the L22 PCI Card. A new software mixer, similar to the one developed for the AES16e and Aurora Thunderbolt, will be available.
The use of field-programmable-gate-arrays is another core technology pioneered for use in audio devices by Lynx. The E series uses the devices with a wealth of resources for parallel processing in our 16 X 8 mixer and V2 DMA engine which maximizes throughput on the PCIe bus while minimizing CPU workload. FPGAs allow for field-upgradeability to add features in the future.
