RME offers several Expansion Boards, that add more or other I/O ports to the internal cards of the Hammerfall, HDSP, HDSPe and DIGI96 series. The OPTO-X replaces the standard coaxial MADI I/O of the HDSPe MADI FX by an optical MADI I/O. The AI4S-192 AIO and AO4S-192 AIO add additional analog inputs and outputs of true studio quality to the HDSP 9632 and the HDSPe AIO. The Word Clock Module WCM adds a word clock input and two outputs in professional quality to the HDSP 9632, HDSPe RayDAT and the HDSPe AIO.
The OPTO-X is an alternative extension board for the HDSPe MADI FX triple MADI card with full functionality. Like the standard extension board it comes with Word Clock I/O and a D-sub connector for MIDI and AES I/O. The standard coaxial MADI I/O is replaced by an optical MADI I/O. Using the OPTO-X the HDSPe MADI FX then has three optical MADI I/Os
1 x MADI I/O optical
1 x MIDI I/O via D-sub
1 x AES I/O via D-sub
