Synthax has announced that RME's HDSPe ExpressCard is shipping. The HDSPe ExpressCard is compatible with all of the newest laptops with ExpressCard slots.
The HDPe ExpressCard uses RME's audio bus and operates with the Multiface II, Multiface, Digiface and the RPM DJ interface. According to the manufacturer, current RME interface owners will not lose investments made for HDSP breakout boxes when changing from Cardbus to ExpressCard interfaces.
The ExpressCard—based on the PCI Express Base Specification version 1.1—represents a 1-Lane PCI Express endpoint device and supports 2.5 Gbps line speed. The card can transfer up to 500 MB/s to 250 MB/s in each direction.
