ADL Embedded Solutions Releases ADLPCIe-PCI: PCIe Bus to PCI Bus Bridge Adapter
July 19, 2012 - ADL Embedded Solutions Inc., a leading provider of customizable, high-performance embedded solutions for demanding thermal and rugged environments, today has announced the ADLPCIe-PCI. The ADLPCIe-PCI bridge card enables the upgrade of existing PCI platforms to PCIe/104-based SBCs while maintaining legacy support for PCI peripherals. Current systems utilizing legacy PCI/104 or PC/104+ SBCs can incorporate our latest second and third generation Intel® Core™ SBCs while maintaining legacy PCI support.
The ADLPCIe-PCI PCIe/104 bus adapter converts a single PCIe link lane (x1) into up to four 32-bit PCI loads operating at 33/66 MHz; allowing legacy PCI-104 and PC/104-Plus cards to be connected in a PCIe/104 system stack.
The ADLPCIe-PCI also provides connection of an additional 2 USB ports routed from the host SBC over the PCI Express bus.
According to Marin Kristof, Managing Director ADL Embedded Solutions GmbH, “The support for legacy PCI peripherals in PC/104-based sytems is a critical factor affecting most systems looking to upgrade to the latest Intel processors.
The ADLPCIe-PCI card solves this problem while also providing industry-leading Intel® Core™ products and systems.
