Â The FM Radcap PCIe is a radio capture card designed for simultaneous recording of multiple radio stations. The frequency of each station is set in software and its audio appears as a standard Windows audio input device. RDS decoding is also supported.
The card uses a high-speed A/D converter to digitize the entire FM band, with up to 32 individual tuners implemented in a Xilinx Spartan 6 FPGA. Demodulated baseband audio is passed across the PCI Express link to the device driver, where stereo and RDS decoding is performed using the host CPU's SSE-2 instruction set. This division of labour between the FPGA and driver allows greatest flexibility in catering for future baseband technologies while minimising the CPU overhead of the card.
A WDM driver for Windows XP (SP2 or later), Server 2003, Vista, Server 2008, Windows 7, Server 2008 R2, Windows 8 and Server 2012 is supplied as well as software for setting the tuner frequencies and monitoring the received audio. A programming API and DLL for software control and monitoring are also supplied.
The card is factory-configured for 6, 12, 18, 24 or 32 stations, but may be expanded in the field for an additional charge.

Good quality product and excellent aftersales service. I can definitely recommend using both the Sonifex and BroadcastWarehouse.
