UMAC Turbo CPU with PC/104-bus interface

Recommended Posts

I'm planning to use UMAC Turbo CPU with a PC/104+ (PCI + ISA busses)SBC through PC/104-bus interface. A high performance SBC (e.g. VersaLogic sbc supporting Windows 7) is used to host PMAC NC Pro2.

 

Q1: Can Windows 7 (and beyond) be used with this configuration? Windows 7 is not officially supporting ISA devices, so what does this mean for UMAC Turbo CPU with PC/104 bus?

 

Q2: Does PCI/104-ISA bridge give any help in this respect if used between PCI/104 single board computer (running Windows 7) and the UMAC CPU controller?

 

Q3: How UMAC CPU w/ PCI/104 connector is comfigured in Windows 7?

 

Regards,

Our ISA drivers work in Win7 for 32-bit only.

 

The PC/104 is set up the same as ISA in our driver. This is not a "Plug'n'Play" driver so the setup is done in the Windows Device Manager. This is described in the "PComm32 Driver Installation Intsructions" file in the common directory of the installation ("DT Driver_Install.pdf").

Hi Steve,

 

Thank you for answering quickly!

 

Just to summarize please comment the following statements:

 

1) UMAC Turbo CPU/Communications Board (3xx-603766-xHxx) with PC/104 Option is fully supported by Delta Tau as it comes to 32-bit version of Windows 7. This card with PC/104 option will have support in the future, too. Correct?

 

2) Windows 7 compatible Non-plug & play 32-bit ISA kernel driver + .inf-file are provided by Delta Tau and can be manually installed by W7 Device Manager. Correct?

 

3) 64-bit ISA kernel driver for Windows 7 is not available by Delta tau. Correct?

 

4) Base address, DPRAM memory configuration, IRQ assignments and mode of communication (Basic Configuration 0-3) can be configured via Windows 7 Device Manager. Correct?

 

5) PComm32PRO is fully supported in Windows 7 and works seamlesly with UMAC Turbo CPU/Communications Board (3xx-603766-xHxx) with PC/104 option. Correct?

 

6) UMAC Turbo CPU/Communications Board (with PC/104 option) + high performance 3rd party PCI/104+ sbc (say 1,6GHz cpu + 2GB RAM) running Windows 7 is the best UMAC option for high blockrate & speed cnc applications if Power PMAC is not counted. This is due to the fact that PCI/104 ISA bus is superior to Ethernet/USB communication. Correct?

 

7) How Power Supply Connections (UMAC Turbo, PC/104+ SBC) should be arranged in UMAC rack when Turbo CPU card is stacked with a PC/104+ sbc?

Tuomo

..........................................................................................................

Yes we will continue to have ISA driver support for the foreseeable future.

..........................................................................................................

Yes - This is described in the "PComm32 Driver Installation Instructions" file in the common directory of the installation ("DT Driver_Install.pdf").

..........................................................................................................

 

3) 64-bit ISA kernel driver for Windows 7 is not available by Delta tau. Correct?

..........................................................................................................

This is correct - we do not support ISA in 64-bit Win7.

..........................................................................................................

 

4) Base address, DPRAM memory configuration, IRQ assignments and mode of communication (Basic Configuration 0-3) can be configured via Windows 7 Device Manager. Correct?

..........................................................................................................

Yes – see the “PComm32 Driver Installation Instructions”.

..........................................................................................................

 

5) PComm32PRO is fully supported in Windows 7 and works seamlesly with UMAC Turbo CPU/Communications Board (3xx-603766-xHxx) with PC/104 option. Correct?

..........................................................................................................

no – only PComm32PRO2 is supported.

..........................................................................................................

This is due to the fact that PCI/104 ISA bus is superior to Ethernet/USB communication. Correct?

..........................................................................................................

Yes - ISA communications is faster than USB/Ethernet.

..........................................................................................................

 

7) How Power Supply Connections (UMAC Turbo, PC/104+ SBC) should be arranged in UMAC rack when Turbo CPU card is stacked with a PC/104+ sbc?

..........................................................................................................

The UMAC power supply can provide the +5V, +12V and -12V.

..........................................................................................................
