The ATX form factor board is expandable with three Bus Mastering
ATA E-IDE PCI slots, three independent channels for six IDE devices, and one AGP PRO slot (support up to 8x mode).
PCIbus allows a direct memory access (DMA) technique called "bus mastering
," which gets back most of the throughput lost in sustained transfers.
Powered by high speed PCI bus mastering
, scatter-gather technology, and double buffering, I-Color supports 120+ MB/second sustained PCI bus transfers to accommodate the most demanding video streaming applications.
The digitizer can transfer data through the PCI bus using a method called PCI Bus Mastering
. Using this method, no CPU mediation is required during the data transfer, and the digitizer can achieve sustained transfer rates of up to 100 MB/s.
IOtech has introduced a 16-bit, PCI-based data acquisition board that features synchronous analog, digital and frequency I/O, software support including Linux drivers and DMA bus mastering
. It is suited for applications with preconditioned voltage, frequency and digital I/O signals.
