According to Metromatics , SBS Technologies continued its role as an embedded computer market leader by introducing the conduction-cooled 3U 1394B-3CP1 CompactPCI IEEE 1394B input/output card.
The 1394B I/O card is engineered to support a maximum data transport speed of 400 Mbits/second (S400B). The versatile 1394B-3CP1 offers a maximum data rate of 100 Mbits/second (S100B) for designs that require transformer-coupled bus isolation.
The 1394B-3CP1 is ideal for data communications, avionics, navtronics, vetronics, LAN networking, and telecommunication applications that need the versatility, high throughput and flexibility of 1394-based connections.
Using a PCI bridge to interface a CompactPCI bus to the card, the 3U 1394B-3CP1 card uses four high-performance 1394B nodes with two ports per node for a total of eight 1394B ports. Four user-defined, general purpose 1394B I/O ports give system designers the flexibility to support various data speeds up to 400 Mbits/second. In addition, the 1394B-3CP1 supports the USB 2.0 data transport protocol with one USB node containing two USB 2.0 ports, providing the 1394B-CP1 card with added versatility.
