3U cPCI to PC/104 and PC/104-Plus Carrier




The PC/104 ADAPTER is a carrier board, allowing the operation of virtually any standard slave PC/104 or PC/104-Plus card in a CompactPCI® system. The PC/104 ADAPTER acts as a PCI bridge, being electrically and mechanically a perfect interface between PC/104 and CompactPCI® . The PC/104 - Plus adapter directly connects to the PCI bus.

The PCI ADAPTER totally frees the system integrator from the need of a redesign of PC/104 cards already available. This is a great advantage, especially when time to market is critical, or the number of systems to be built is limited, or the function to be implemented has fast innovation cycles.

In order to fully comply with both, PCI and CompactPCI® specifications, the PC/104 ADAPTER is provided with a PLX PCI-ISA translator chip. By its built-in buffers, the bridge can speed up system data transfer rates significantly. Some modification of the PC/104 (ISA) driver is required. A complete reference manual is available. The PC/104-Plus adapter is a direct connect to the PCI bus and no driver software modification is required.
