PCI Interface Cards

   The PCI card is a card was developed to replace the previous ISA interface that had reached its limits. Now the current PCI cards are reaching their limitations and its time for a new interface and that interface is PCI Express.

    PCI Cards

       A standard PCI) standard bus, which has been universally adopted for use as a high-performance local bus in Pentium-based personal computers.

    PCI Benefits

       PCI provides a standard, high-performance local bus that will remain the same from processor to processor. Only the processor-to-memory bus need be modified.

        Performance, of course, is another key element of PCI. New graphics and GUIs, extensive use of imaging, video and faster communications have placed a major demand on processor, I/O, and system bandwidth. PMC will go a long way to alleviate the I/O bottleneck. With a bandwidth of 132 Mbytes/sec for a 32-bit implementation and 264 Mbytes/sec for a 64-bit version, PCI is capable of handling just about everything up through ATM and full-motion video.

        PCI put the focus on the main objective of the standard-bus community trying to provide a standard, off-the-shelf alternative to costly proprietary design. PCI will go a long way in providing that capability with a broad range of standard I/O.

       We have software drivers available for numerous operating systems including VxWorks, Linux, and Windows.
