Vital Studio Connection for Multiface and Digiface
Note: This PCIe Card is made for the RME Multiface/Digiface.
Based on the legendary Hammerfall PCI core with its innovative zero CPU load technology, the new PCIe core is even more optimized for more performance. Thanks to the latest chip technology internal hi-speed RAM can be used faster and more efficient than external SRAM. Furthermore the PCIe card includes two Sync-connectors for synchronisation of multiple interfaces.
The connection between PCIe card and I/O box is established using ordinary firewire cable (IEEE 1394, 6-pole). The data transfer does not use Firewire protocol, but RME's own proprietary bus protocol. The supplied cable is 4.5 m (15 ft.) long, a cable length up to 15 m (48 ft.) has been successfully tested.
