MEV are technology partners with Broadcom, a major worldwide supplier of PCI Bridge chips.
The PCI Bus has now replaced ISA / EISA as the most popular bus interface between the host computer and peripheral devices. Most PCs are now manufactured without any ISA slots. MEV has extensive experience in PCI bus solutions.
MEV can supply
We can also help you develop Windows, Linux, DOS or LabVIEW device drivers, see our Device Drivers page.
MEV has designed a number of PCI Bus IBM PC plug-in cards using Broadcom PCI 9050, 9052, PCI 9030 and PCI 9054 bridge chips for a range of clients including Thales e-Security, Wavestore and Amplicon. We also designed the PCI 9052 RDK Lite for Broadcom.
Card designs range from simple IO slaves to fully featured scatter gather, bus master solutions.
32-bit, 66MHz PCI I/O accelerator
It is the most advanced, 32-bit general-purpose bus mastering device available for 32-bit, 66MHz local bus based designs.
32-bit, 33 MHz PCI bus mastering interface chip
A 32-bit 33 MHz PCI bus mastering interface chip with burst transfers up to 132Mbytes/sec and a flexible 50 MHz local bus. The 9054 I/O Accelerator is the industry's first CompactPCI® Hot-Swap Friendly PCI interface chip
32-bit, 33MHz PCI v.2.2-compliant device
A 32-bit, 33MHz PCI v.2.2-compliant device with burst transfers up to 132Mbytes/sec and 60 MHz local bus. The 9030 delivers high performance to new PCI-based adapters and those migrating from legacy designs.
32-Bit, 33 MHz Slave
The Broadcom 9050 family provides low-cost connectivity for PCI slave designs. It is specifically targeted at easing the transition of existing ISA designs to the more feature rich and performance oriented PCI bus.
The 9060 family was the first full featured PCI Interface Chip on the market. The 9080 has replaced the 9060 for modern designs.
