SBus 16 bit parallel I/0 data interface. Used for computer to device connection where speed and continuous processing are essential. The S16D will support 10 megabyte per second transfers to computers or devices which can support that role. Typical applications include A-D and D-A converters, telemetry systems, and video systems.

  • Supports SBus 16-byte Burst mode
  • Supports buffered block modes with internal FIFO
  • Programmable Control Signal Configurations
  • 4 gigabyte DVMA Addressing

Hardware options.

  • Precision impedance cables in 7, 25, and 50 foot lengths
  • Cable adapters
  • Loopback diagnostic connector kit

Software:- Device drivers for Solaris 1.x (SunOS 4.1.x) and Solaris 2.x (SunOS 5.x). Driver source code is optionally available.
