Santa Clara, Calif. and Toronto--Jan. 22, 1998-- V3 Semiconductorintroduced its high-performance, second-generation family of PCI I2O Ready Controllers-V3x0EPC Rev. A0.
The two I2O ready members of the new EPC family, the V350EPC andV360EPC, are PCI 2.1 compliant and attach to 32-bit multiplexed ordemultiplexed buses respectively. They are completely backwardcompatible to the existing PBC Family and provide enhanced featuresand higher-speed operation.
The EPC incorporates a messaging unit to implement the communicationlayer required by Intelligent I/O (I2O), 3.3- to 5-V operation, 50-MHzlocal bus, hot swapping features, industrial temperature grade, andadvanced demand-mode DMA features for efficient and cost-effectiveembedded systems applications.
