Embedded computing adapter from ADL helps upgrade legacy PCI/104 and PCI/104+ to PCI Express/104

SAN DIEGO, 23 July 2012. ADL Embedded Solutions Inc. in San Diego is introducing the ADLPCIe-PCI bridge card to help systems designers upgrade existing PCI systems to PCI Express/104 single-board computers while maintaining legacy support for PCI peripherals.

Today's systems that use relatively old PCI/104 or PC/104+ single-board computers can design-in the latest second- and third-generation Intel Core embedded computing boards while maintaining legacy PCI support, ADL officials say.

The PCI Express/104 bus adapter converts one PCI Express link lane (x1) into as many as four 32-bit PCI loads operating at 33 or 66 MHz. This enables designers to connect legacy PCI-104 and PC/104-Plus cards in a PCI Express/104 system stack. The ADLPCIe-PCI also provides connection of an additional two USB ports routed from the host single-board computer over the PCI Express bus.

“The support for legacy PCI peripherals in PC/104-based systems is a critical factor affecting most systems looking to upgrade to Intel processors," says JC Ramirez, ADL embedded solutions product manager. "The ADLPCIe-PCI card solves this problem while also providing Intel Core products and systems."
