Connect Tech has introduced a line of passive adapter engineering tools designed to simplify the development and testing process by eliminating the need for dedicated development systems.
The passive adapters allow developers to use standard PC bus slots to test CompactPCI, PC/104 and PC/104-Plus boards. The adapters are easy to use: simply mount your test card and place the adapter into a system's ISA or PCI slot. Additional configuration is unnecessary.
The ISA to PC/104 Adapter eliminates the need for a separate PC/104 development stack, enabling the test card to be mounted into a standard ISA slot. The card comes complete with a test card reset button, stack-through connectors, and a breadboarding area for electrical circuit assembly and testing.
The PCI to PC/104-Plus Adapter enables developers to mount a PCI-104 or PC/104-Plus module into a standard Universal PCI slot. Stack-through connectors enable probing on the front or back of the test card. In addition, the design allows cables to exit from the host PC for easy connection to external devices.
The PCI to CompactPCI Adapter eliminates the need for a dedicated CompactPCI development system, enabling developers to mount their cPCI test cards into a standard Universal PCI slot. This adapter includes a test card hardware reset button, and a breadboarding area for electrical circuit assembly and testing.
