The PCIe042b is an innovative interface design that addresses the need for 800Mbps data transfer rates over multiple bus interfaces. It allows for one standard 1394 copper as well as two glass optical fiber (GOF) connections. These Fiber connections support both the S800 transmission rates as well as long-haul distances (up to 100m) over LC Duplex 50/125um multi-modes optical cables.
And it uses the ever so popular PCIe interface standard and is fully OHCI compliant. The products accommodate off-the-shelf IEEE-1394 OHCI drivers from WindowsTM & Linux-based operating systems. No driver modification/installation is required.
For a more optimized API and/or operating systems without built-in support we recommend to use DapTechnology's FireStack. FireStack currently supports WindowsTM, Linux, VxWorks, IRIX and QNX. Please contact DapTechnology directly for operating systems not currently supported.
