Abaco Systems / SBS Model 616 PCI to VMEbus Adapter

  • Remote Bus Mastership
  • Bus Error Timeout
  • Single-Level or Four-Level Arbitration


The GE Fanuc / SBS Model 616 PCI to VMEbus Adapter is an easy-to-use, cost-effective way to share memory and special purpose cards between a PCI bus system and a VMEbus system. The Model 616 adapter provides high-speed data transfers between the two systems, and requires minimal software support. Model 616 interconnects the PCI and VMEbus systems at the physical layer. Working at the lowest level, the bus, the adapter allows the two systems to share memory; memory appears to and is treated by each system as if it were its own. Therefore, a card only available on one bus may be accessed and directly controlled by a system using another bus. For example, an Array Processor board in a VMEbus chassis can be directly controlled by the processor on the PCI bus.

The Model 616 supports Memory Mapped inter-system communications. Memory Mapping supports bi-directional random access bus mastering from either system. This allows Programmed Input/Output (PIO) access to VMEbus RAM, dual-port memory, and VMEbus I/O, and provides an easy-to-use, flexible interface with low overhead. A PCI bus master can access memory in the VMEbus system through a window in PCI memory address space. Conversely, a VMEbus bus master can access PCI memory from a window in VMEbus address space. Memory mapping is accomplished through 12,288 Mapping Registers that are used to steer memory accesses on one bus to the appropriate address on the other bus. The Mapping Registers allow PCI devices to access up to 32M bytes of VMEbus address space and VMEbus devices to access up to 16M bytes of PCI space. Model 616 does not link the timing of the two buses (so that activity on one bus slows down the other). Instead, the adapter permits each bus to operate independently. The buses are linked only when a memory or I/O reference is made to an address on one system that translates to a reference on the other system's bus.
