BB-FWB-PCIE1X11A PCI Express TI OHCI IEEE1394b Host Controller (800Mbits)






FWB-PCIE1X11A is designed with Texas Instruments XIO2213A controller.

The Texas Instruments XIO2213A is a PCI Express to PCI translation bridge where the PCI bus interface is internally connected to a 1394b open host controller link-layer controller with a three-port 1394b PHY. The PCI-Express to PCI translation bridge is fully compatible with the PCI Express to PCI/PCI-X Bridge Specification, Revision 1.0. Also, the bridge supports the standard PCI-to-PCI bridge programming model. The 1394b OHCI controller function is fully compatible with IEEE Standard 1394b and the latest 1394 Open Host Controller Interface (OHCI) Specification.

Deep FIFOs are provided to buffer 1394 data and accommodate large host bus latencies. The device provides physical write posting and a highly tuned physical data path for SBP-2 performance. The device is capable of transferring data between the PCI Express bus and the 1394 bus at 100M bits/s, 200M bits/s, 400M bits/s, and 800M bits/s.

FWB-PCIE1X11A provides full PCI Express and 1394b functionality and performance.
