(This trend goes hand in hand with the growth of COM bus architecture, which is, by definition, a SBC board function.) Leading manufacturers like GE Intelligent Platforms exemplify this trend.
As the demands on PCI have increased, the limitations inherent in bus architecture are creating an overall system bottleneck.
The previous system utilized PLCs that were much slower and less powerful than the models offered today, and equally in need of replacement; the bus architecture was seriously out-of-date as well.
Advanced Micro Devices Inc is working with Concord, Massachusetts-based Alpha Processor Inc on the system bus architecture to be used first in its 64-bit Sledgehammer system bus architecture, disclosed earlier this week.
Starting at $2,499, the Echos notebooks include four Pentium-based models, PCI bus architecture with 256Kb L2 cache, 1.3Gb hard disk drives, high-resolution 800 x 600 Super VGA color displays and a multifunction bay with 6x CD-ROM, 16-bit sound card, a microphone, stereo speakers and a modular floppy disk drive.
This parallel bus architecture allows all of the drives to run at full speed simultaneously.
However, the processing bandwidth of the host microprocessor does not allow for the complete decommutation, processing and storage of PCM streams at these rates, as it is limited by the data transfer rate of the ISA bus architecture. The series 500 airborne telemetry packs employ much slower data rates of 256 Kb/s and are well suited for a PC-based system.
Coral's non-blocking bus architecture eliminated the hardware constraints on the internetwork.
If you read any recent journal, you are bound to see an article or two discussing bus architecture. There are now two competing bus standards for high-performance personal computers: the Extended Industry Standard Architecture (EISA) and the Micro Channel architecture (MCA).
He also surveys the growing number of architectures and concepts being discussed, and delves into areas rarely considered by similar textbooks, such as power bus architecture, guard rings, and floorplanning.
SynQor Inc, a supplier of DC-DC power converters, EMI filters and AC-DC power supply conversion solutions, announced yesterday that it has been awarded damages in its patent infringement lawsuit against 11 industry suppliers of unregulated and semi-regulated bus converters used in Intermediate Bus Architecture applications (SynQor Inc v.
