leagasy device that needs to run on PCI controller until a PCIe version
I know there are several companies the make PCIe-to-PCI bridge chips but I
can't find anyone who makes actual adapters.
Does anyone know where I can buy an adapter so that I can run my legasy PCI
Re: PCIe to PCI bridge needed
Think of the mechanical details. How could you plug an adapter
to an PCI card, and have it fit in the computer ? I'd have liked
to go into that business myself, but there is no easy mechanical
solution to packaging the cards, such that you could use an
adapter per card.
Now, there is an answer. This company has made PCI to PCI
expansion chassis in the past. Now they feature a PCI
Express to PCI expansion chassis. A bridge card plugs
into your PCI Express computer. The other end of the
bridge cable, plugs into the expansion chassis. Plenty
of room for cards this way.
The only question, is when it is scheduled to ship.
