Digigram has resized it's PCX924v2, PCX22v2, and VX222v2 stereo
sound cards to the compact short-length PCI format, which is requested by
a growing number of PCs. With a length of only 175 mm (6.875 inches), the boards
now fit even in the most compact computers with 5V, 5V+3.3V, or 3.3V PCI busses,
as well as computers with PCI-X bus. The new sound cards are fully compatible
with existing drivers for the longer versions of PCX924v2, PCX22v2, and VX222v2.
The PCX924v2 is a full-duplex stereo sound card for simultaneous and independent
record and playback. Embedded DSP handles the audio processing, freeing up
the computer's CPU, minimizing latency, and permitting an even greater system
reliability. The PCX924v2 features 24-bit converters, balanced analog and AES/EBU
I/Os, an external AES/EBU synchronization input, a headphone jack, as well
as WAVE and Digigram np Runtime drivers.
A playback-only card, Digigram PCX22v2 offers two analog or digital outputs
The VX222v2 includes balanced 2/2 analog inputs and outputs with 24-bit converters,
as well as a stereo AES/EBU input/output. It can be used with a wide choice
of audio applications using Digigram's np Runtime, Microsoft's Wave and DirectSound,
Apple's Core Audio, or Steinberg's ASIO. A Linux open source project following
the most advanced audio standard for Linux called ALSA (Advanced Linux Sound
Architecture) exists (www.alsa-project.org) as well.
