VME Byteswap

General Info

SgPCIe-VME from Solflower Computer, Inc. allows existing 6U form factor VME modules to be used with the StarGen Fabric network. The SgPCIe-VME makes use of flexible SG2010 PCI-PCI expansion via SCSI flat cable in conjunction with the PCI-VME Tundra VME-64bit interface and the PCI-VME Exilinx byte swap interface. The SgPCIe-VME has an advantage of providing high data transfer and a Solaris driver which allows existing Sun-4 VME software to be used transparently in the most applications.
