Audio Cards for Sun|
Audio cards for SPARC systems are available in
a wide variety of busses:- VME, SBus, PCI, PMC etc. Most cards are supported on
Solaris, but some are only supported on real-time operating systems.
main problem for buyers of Solaris compatible audio cards is the volatility of
suppliers in this product segment. Many companies have introduced products for
the Sun market in the hope of making a quick buck, only to withdraw them hastily
again when they discovered that the Sun market was smaller than they realised
and that Sun was not going to resell their product. Some manufacturers in recent
years have entered and exited the Sun market in as little as 6 months. That's
not much help to you if you're designing an embedded application and need
longevity of supply.
