Help with CompactPCI Controllers and CompactPCI Processors specifications:

Controller Type Controllers are special computers that are used to control the CompactPCI / PXI network.  They are used to control the data transfer between devices in the network, the status of interrupts, IRQs, registers, triggers, etc.  Also they are used to control instruments in the network for testing and analysis.  Controllers are the most important single element in a CompactPCI / PXI system.
   Controller Type:      The most important types of controllers are:
  • PC-based controllers or Remote controllers.
  • Embedded controllers.
  • Real-Time Embedded Controllers
   Your choices are...         
   PC Controller (Remote)       PC controllers (or remote controllers) make use of a personal computer connected through a link to control and manage the system. 
   Embedded Controller       Embedded controllers are computer boards integrated with the CompactPCI / PXI system.  The controller is packaged to fit in a CompactPCI / PXI chassis, which allows the controller easy access to system devices and resources (memory, triggers, DMAs, IRQs, etc.) without the need of an external command module. 
   Real-Time Controller (Embedded)       These controllers are embedded controllers using a preinstalled real-time operating system, rather than a general-purpose, not real-time operating systems like DOS® or Windows®.

   Form Factor:      Card format is given in terms of (height x length). The height is expressed in units of 'U'.  The 'U' is a unit used for the front panel of cards.  Each 'U' is equal to 1.75 inches.  The length normally is in mm (millimeters). The most popular heights are:
  • 3U = 100 mm
  • 6U = 233 mm
The CompactPCI specifications recognizes two types of cards: A single height board, also known simply as a 3U card, is 100 mm x 160 mm with one 96 pin DIN connector (the J1connector) on the rear that plugs into the backplane.  A double height board, also known as a 6U card, is 233 mm x 160 mm and has a second 96 pin DIN connector (the J2 connector). Note: Normally the height of the card is measured in units of 'U'.  The length of the card is measured in terms of millimeters (mm).
   Your choices are...         
   3U       3U cards, also known as single height boards, are 100 mm x 160 mm with one 96 pin DIN connector (J1 connector) on the rear that plugs into the backplane. The bus width of a cPCI or PXI card with a 3U form factor is 32 bits. 
   6U       6U cards, also known as double height boards, are 233 mm x 160 mm with a second 96 pin DIN connector (J2 connector). The bus width of a cPCI or PXI card with a 6U form factor is 64 bits.

   Clock Speed:       Clock Speed is the speed at which the processor executes instructions. This is also known as the clock rate. The internal clock of the computer regulates the rate at which instructions are executed by the CPU and synchronizes the operations of the computer components. The processor uses a fixed number of clock cycles to process one instruction. Clock speeds are measured in terms of megahertz (MHz). 1 MHz is one million clock cycles per second. 
   Search Logic:      All matching products will have a value greater than or equal to the specified value.

Ports and Interfaces
   Ports and Interfaces       
   Your choices are...         
   Serial Interface (RS232, RS422, RS485)       A port, or interface, that can be used for serial communication, in which only 1 bit is transmitted at a time (serial binary data interchange). There are several serial standards available. Some of the most important:
  • RS232: Standard interface approved by the Electronic Industries Association (EIA) for connecting serial devices. The device that connects to the interface is called is Data Communication Equipment (DCE), and the device to which it connects (the computer) is called the Data Terminal Equipment (DTE).
  • RS422: A balanced serial interface for the transmission of digital data designed to replace the older RS232. It supports greater distances, higher Baud rates, and greater immunity to electrical interference than RS232.  RS422 is intended for point-to-point communications like RS232.
  • RS485:  Similar to RS422, but is used for multipoint communications.
 
   Parallel Port       A channel capable of transferring more than one bit simultaneously. 
   PCMCIA (PC Card)       PCMCIA devices or PC cards are credit card-sized peripherals used mainly in laptop and notebook computers. They plug into a 68-pin host socket that is connected either to the motherboard or an expansion bus. An adapter takes the place of a COM port and translates the PCMCIA signals into a format that is usable by the computer’s bus. PC cards adhere to standards developed by the Personal Computer Memory Card International Association (PCMCIA). Originally, these standards were designed for adding memory to portable computers; however, standards now apply to many types of devices. There are three types of PC cards: Type I, Type II, and Type III. All types have the same width (54 mm) and length (85.6 mm), but vary in thickness. 
   USB       Universal serial bus (USB) is a 4-wire, 12-Mbps serial bus for low-to-medium speed peripheral device connections to personal computers (PC), including keyboards, mice, modems, printers, joysticks, audio functions, monitor controls, etc. The USB design is standardized by the USB Implementers Forum (USBIF), an organization that includes leading companies from the computer and electronics industries. The current USB specification is USB 2.0, which supports data transfer rates of up to 480 Mbps. 
   GPIB Interface       The general-purpose interface bus (GPIB) is designed to connect computers, peripherals and laboratory instruments so that data and control information can pass between them. It was originally developed by Hewlett Packard (HP) and called the HPIB bus. GPIB is also know as the IEEE 488 bus, and is electrically equivalent to the IEC 625 bus.   
   Ethernet       Ethernet is a local area network (LAN) protocol that uses a bus or star typology and supports data transfer rates of 10 Mbps. The Ethernet specification is the basis for the IEEE 802.3 standard, which specifies the physical and lower software layers. To handle simultaneous demands, Ethernet uses carrier sense multiple access / collision detection (CSMA/CD) to monitor network traffic.
