TWINLANe Network TWINLANe network
TWINLANe is a proprietary Yamaha network protocol for transferring multiple channels of digital
audio and control signals simultaneously over a single cable.
TWINLANe allows low-latency transfer of up to 400 audio channels over distances up to 300 meters
between devices via multi-mode optical fiber cable, and enables sharing between all devices on the
network. Input signals can also be shared between multiple DSP engines.
Ring topology allows redundancy that will keep the network running even if a cable fails.
400 channels of audio, control signals
44.1 kHz, 48 kHz, 88.2 kHz, 96 kHz
11 sample @ Fs = 44.1 kHz (0.25 msec)
11 sample @ Fs = 48 kHz (0.23 msec)
12 sample @ Fs = 88.2 kHz (0.14 msec)
12 sample @ Fs = 96 kHz (0.13 msec)
* If the number of connected devices is much larger, or if the total length of all cables is too long, the listed
value may not apply.
Use Neutrik opticalCON DUO multi-mode optical fiber cables. Optical fiber cable is easily damaged by
bending and pulling. Using cable that has a locking mechanism and strong insulation can help to reduce
Correct communication might not be possible if debris and/or dust has adhered to the ends of
optical fiber cables or the connectors.
Clean the equipment regularly by using commercially available optical fiber cleaning products.
Connecting a TWINLANe network card
The HY256-TL TWINLANe network card can be used with the RIVAGE PM10 system.

To connect devices, first install a TWINLANe network card in an HY card slot of each device, then
use fiber optic cables to connect the TWINLANe network cards in a ring network topology.
