Overview

For the Hammerfall DSP System, RME developed a world-exclusive PCMCIA type II card in Zero wait state CardBus Busmaster technology.

For some time now, laptops have been powerful enough for even ambitious hard disk recording thanks to high computing power and powerful hard drives. Up to now, a powerful interface was missing though. USB is neither offering the necessary bandwidth, nor the desired compatibility. Available PCMCIA solutions at the moment are nearly always designed as 16 bit PC Card and therefore only make use of the ISA bus.

With up to 130 MBs transfer rate in both directions the same basic performance is provided on a notebook as a PCI card would offer on a desktop computer. Additionally the card offers highest compatibility by being 100% plug-and-play compatible under Windows and MacOS, and being able to share interrupts. The card itself will only use one interrupt (IRQ) for all functions.

Specifications
  • 100% plug-and-play compatible
  • Hammerfall hardware design: mono channels in block mode, organized in 32-bit ASIO double buffers
