• Summary

    1394 PCIe S1600

    The PCIe0161b is a typical example for this product line: It is the only host adapter card in the market with S1600 capabilities. It incorporates DapTechnology’s innovative 1394 IP solution FireCore™ (i.e. the combined IP building blocks for LLC IP (FireLink®) and PHY IP (FireGateTM)) and thus allows for unmatched data speeds.

    The new card works best in conjunction with DapTechnology’s software stack FireStack®. It features an innovative 1394 packet handler, whose objective is to reduce resource burden when receiving and transmitting 1394 packets. The consistent utilization of zero-copy operations greatly enhances the overall system performance. FireStack® provides memory buffers accessible by both the user application and the 1394 Link Layer DMA engine. FireStack® is available for a variety of operating systems like WindowsTM, VxWorksTM, LabVIEWTM, Linux, QNX, etc. Please contact DapTechnology directly for availability.

    1394 PCIe S1600 software

    Standard OHCI Link Layers and FireStack

    FireStack® is DapTechnology’s homegrown 1394 software stack. Initially developed in conjunction with the company’s 1394 Link Layer Controller FireLink®, the product was architectured from ground up in order to support the advanced features of the FireLink® IP (Basic and Extended) solution. Since then additional mechanisms have been added to FireStack® to enable support for generic OHCI compliant Link layers.

    FireStack® is an alternative to using general purpose SW implementations with standard OHCI I/O interfaces as it offers a more deterministic approach. Modern plug & play solutions are not always recommended for use in enclosed systems since they typically add undesired bus traffic, latencies, etc... The ability to customize FireStack® modules allows focusing on the task requirements without unwanted system, traffic and data overhead.
