DRV11-J Interface for PCI Express
The DCE-1400 is a parallel interface that provides 64 input/ output data lines. The DCE-1400 is software and hardware compatible with Digital’s DRV11-J Q-bus controller and can be used as a direct replacement.
The DCE-1400 includes an advanced interrupt structure with bit interruptability up to 16 lines, programmable vectors, and program selection of fixed or rotating interrupt priority within the DCE-1400.
The DCE-1400’s bit interrupts for real time response make it especially useful for sensor I/O applications. It can also be used as a general purpose interface to custom devices, and two DCE-1400’s can be connected back-to-back as a link between two systems. The OpenVMS driver and manual are available separately.
DRV11-J Compatible Provides an easy migration path Space saving Easy to maintain
The DCE-1400 provides the same operating features as Digital’s DRV11-J:
The DCE-1400 is a plug and play solution for users migrating from older Digital systems.
The DCE-1400 requires only a single PCI Express slot allowing use of multiple modules in a server.
A module exerciser supplied with the device driver allows the user to verify DCE-1400 operation.

Easy to maintain
General I/O Application: Use the DCE-1400 to connect a server to external user equipment such as data acquisition, A/D, telemetry or industrial control equipment supporting a DRV11-J compatible interface for 16-bit parallel data transfer or to provide interrupt services for up to 16 lines.
Parallel Computer Link: Use the DCE-1400 to provide a parallel data link to another system supporting a DRV11-J compatible interface.
