Networking TI`s C40s and the PCI bus
Transtech Parallel Systems` TDMB414 PCI to C40 interface card provides a way to transfer data between networks of the Texas Instruments C40 processors and the PCI bus. The board can communicate with a PCI host by mapping the C40 com port to the PCI bus via a 1024-byte FIFO. Alternatively, 32 kbytes of dual-ported memory can be used to connect the C40 global connector and the PCI bus. Five com ports are used for connections with other Transtech carrier cards to provide a total of 500 MFLOPs in two slots. Compliant with Rev. 2.1 of the PCI spec, the $1695 TDMB414 is a standard half-size card.
