Product Description

The DRV11-J Interface for PCI Express (DCE-1400) is signal and connector compatible with Digital’s DRV11-J. Users can unplug their external equipment from their older PDP-11, VAX, MicroVAX or Alpha system and plug directly into a PCI Express slot in a new Itanium system.

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
The DCE-1400 provides the same operating features as Digital’s DRV11-J:

  • Four 3-state 16-bit parallel I/O ports
  • Acceptance of up to 16 external interrupt requests
  • Programmable vector addresses
  • Program-controlled input/output operations
  • Programmable operating modes

Provides an easy migration path
The DCE-1400 is a plug and play solution for users migrating from older Digital systems.

Space saving
The DCE-1400 requires only a single PCI Express slot allowing use of multiple modules in a server.

Easy to maintain
A module exerciser supplied with the device driver allows the user to verify DCE-1400 operation.

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.

The DCE-1400-AA package includes the following:

  • PCIe DRV11-J
  • 8′ 100-pin cable
  • 12″ 50-pin ribbon cable
  • DCE-1400 adapter panel
  • User manual
