PI2AES-LITE - Pro Audio Shield
FORM FACTOR – Raspberry Pi ® Shield Size w/40-Pin mating connector.
AES TRANSMITTER – The industry standard WM8804 converts the PI I2S stream to AES3/SPDIF formatted data at 24-Bit up to 192Khz.
AES COAX OUTPUT – A 1:1 Isolation Transformer provides 75-ohm Impedance Controlled Transmission of the Digital Audio Data via AES Standard BNC.
SPDIF OUTPUT – A 1:1 Isolation Transformer provides Bit Perfect Transmission of the Digital Audio Data via RCA Jack.
TOSLINK OPTICAL OUTPUT – Isolated Optical Transmitter Supports Consumer Level DAC’s and AVR’s.
HIGH RESOLUTION CLOCKS – A pair of Ultra-Low Noise NDK NZ2520SD oscillators allow the WM8804 to operate in non-PLL mode for the lowest possible noise.
ULTRA-LOW NOISE LDO’s – Dual, Ultra-Low Noise LT34042 LDO’s (0.9uV noise and 80dB PSRR) are used to supply the WM8804 AES Transmitter and the High-Resolution NDK Clocks for extremely low Jitter.
PI2AES-LITE FAQ - Frequently Asked Questions
Q: Do the PI2AES-LITE outputs work simultaneously?
A: Yes, all digital audio outputs deliver the same audio data at the same time.
Q: Which versions of the Raspberry PI is the PI2AES-LITE compatible with?
A: The PI2AES has been tested on the PI 3, 3+ and 4
Q: What power supply do I need for the PI2AES-LITE?
A: The PI2AES-LITE is designed to operate from the Pi 5V Power Supply via the GPIO 5V pins.
Q: Does the PI2AES-LITE come with a case?
A: Yes, an acrylic case is provided with two different right side and front plates for the PI3 and PI4. You just assemble which one is appropriate for you.
Q: Is the PI2AES-LITE compatible with the software for the PI2AES?
A: The PI2AES-LITE uses the same core design as the PI2AES and will support all of the same software. The same drivers can be used for both.
