The ASI6316, a PCI Express CobraNet sound card with dual RJ45 connectors, was on the
drawing board when several customers approached AudioScience requesting specific
additions to the ASI6416, AudioScience's first CobraNet sound card. Those requests for the
ASI6416 made it into the ASI6316.
"Our customers were in the right place at the right time," said Richard Gross, president of
AudioScience. "We incorporated some very key features into the ASI6316, allowing for even
greater flexibility in a diverse field of installations. The ASI6316 was built with direct input
from our customers."
Besides having a PCI Express and dual redundant CobraNet interfaces, there is support for
up to eight ASI6316s in one system. With new Intercard Sync, one can start or stop audio
across multiple ASI6316s with one sample accuracy. A programmable selection of either
word clock input or word clock output has been added, along with a serial bridge that is
exposed as an internal USB header.
"We appreciate the feedback we get from our customers and the ASI6316 is proof that ASI
does listen,' added Gross.

drivers are available for Windows Vista and Linux. AudioScience's application, ASIControl,
