The PCI 11W provides a high speed single slot parallel interface for PCI bus computers. The parallel interface conforms to the Digital Equipment Corp. DR11W. This interface is used for computer to computer or computer to device connection where speed is essential. The PCI 11W will support 8 Megabyte per second transfers.


The PCI 11W may be used to enable the transfer of data to or from PCI bus computers running Linux or Windows. Typical applications include graphics displays, A-D and D-A converters, disk drives, and telemetry and control systems.


Device drivers for supported operating systems are included with the board, as well as several utility and example programs and a C language interface library.

  • Precision impedance cables in 7,25, and 50 foot lengths
  • Cable adapters
  • Loopback diagnostic connector kit
