01.08.2001 - The new high performance technology of its NT960 adapter

Connect Tech Inc., a leading manufacturer of quality serial communications adapters, is pleased to announce that the high performance technology of its NT960 adapter is now available for the PCI bus compatible computer. This RISC-based intelligent multi-port subsystem offers one of the industry’s most flexible solutions for demanding serial I/O requirements. Robust and efficient, the NT960/PCI is built around a 33 MHz Intel 80960 RISC processor, with 1 MB of RAM. These features substantially reduce serial I/O bottlenecks on the host CPU, resulting in improved operations for your system. In combination with our modular ACM technology, one NT960/PCI host adapter can accommodate up to 128 flexible, high performance ports. Serial Line Interface Modules ensure your system comes with the electrical interface combinations that are right for your requirements. Add the ease of Plug and Play, and support for all the most popular operating systems and the NT960/PCI subsystem is the logical, reliable choice for your complex communications needs. The NT960/PCI can be purchased as a PCI host adaptor replacement for an existing Intellicon-NT960 ISA bus system, or as part of a new serial I/O subsystem.

10.08.1999 - QNX driver for Hilscher-CIF-cards of Cogent

Hilscher CIF-cards offer even access to field bus systems (CANopen, Interbus, ModConnect, Profibus, etc.) over only one single driver! This simplifies the things dramatically in two ways:

  1. On the programming level: you can exchange cards as you like with out the need of modifying the type of access
  2. On the program selection level: you only need a single configuration and diagnostic program

This revolutionary concept was available so far only under Microsoft operating systems. Now Cogent offers for the first time a driver for QNX.
