Customer Request Drives Development of High-Channel Count PCM Adapter

NEWCASTLE, DE (August 04, 2010) – AudioScience, Inc., a leader of professional audio peripherals for the broadcast and installed sound and entertainment industries, was approached by a customer with specific audio hardware requirements. AudioScience turned those requirements into reality with the release of the ASI5680; an analog, high-channel count, PCI Express (PCIe) PCM audio adapter.

The ASI5680 rounds out AudioScience 's outstanding multi-channel PCM adapter line by adding a PCIe analog adapter with eight stereo playback streams fed to eight stereo outputs, and one stereo record stream fed from one stereo input. The ASI5680 features AudioScience's unique 'anything to anywhere' mixing and routing, as well as SSX2 that allows multichannel streams of up to eight channels to be played and mixed. AudioScience's SoundGuard transient voltage suppression is available on all I/O.

"We were approached with specific channel count and power dissipation requirements," states Richard Gross, president of AudioScience. "After we confirmed that the project did not require our trademark DSP features such as TSX, MRX, and support for compressed audio formats, we went to work. The ASI5680s are now installed at the customer's site and are working flawlessly."

Drivers are provided for Windows 7, XP, Server 2003/2008, as well as for Linux. 64-bit drivers are available for Windows 7 and Linux. SDKs are available for Windows and Linux using either standard APIs such as DirectSound or ALSA, or the proprietary AudioScience HPI and ASX interfaces.
