RME TEB TDIF Expansion Board
Works with: HDSPe RayDAT, DIGI9636/52, HDSP 9652, DIGI96 Series
The RME TEB TDIF Expansion Board adds an 8-Channel TDIF interface to all ADAT-capable RME cards. Special features include manual choice of clock reference, status LEDs and a word clock output.
The RME TEB TDIF Expansion Board is designed for maximum flexibility. Used with the Hammerfall series and the HDSP 9652, it can even be used at sample rates of 88.2 kHz and 96 kHz. Meeting the TDIF specification, Double Line mode uses two channels in single speed to get one channel in Double Speed. Therefore at 88.2/96 kHz up to 4 channels are available.
Installation is done in a convenient manner using the supplied bracket. No PCI slot on the motherboard is required. The integrated Clock Select Switch selects the TDIF reference clock, thus avoids any clocking problems even with 'problematic' TDIF devices.
Using the Expansion Board is very easy to do, thanks to the clearly structured and informative Settings Dialog of RME's cards. The TEB operates like any other converter with ADAT input and output, but is connected internally. Therefore the input selector has to be set to 'Internal'.
The RME TEB TDIF Expansion Board receives its clock either from the card or the external TDIF device. This is selected via the switch at the bracket. The Input Status displays the selected input (Internal), the current sample rate (44.1/48) and format (Adat).
The ADAT output of all cards operate in parallel to the TDIF output. When Hammerfall or HDSP 9652 are operated in Double Speed mode, the TEB automatically converts the audio data to 4-Channel Double Line format.
