125 MS/s,512 MByte (2 GByte),TTL,PCI Express x1,Digital I/O, M2i.7005-Exp
The M2i.70xx Express series of fast digital I/O boards offers a resolution between 1 bit and 64 bit with a maximum sampling rate of 125 MS/s (60 MS/s). All I/O lines of the card can be programmed for either input or output direction. The on-board memory of up to 2 GByte can be used completely for recording or replaying digital data. The internal standard synchronisation bus allows synchronisation of several cards of the M2i series. Therefore the M2i.70xx board can be used in combination with analog boards.
In contrast to the parallel PCI buses PCI Express slots contain serial point to point connections. Each connection pair (lane) is able to reach a burst connection speed of 250 MBytes/s. The Spectrum PCI Express cards base on the most commonly used x1 lane slot type. One advantage of the PCI Express technology is the direct connection of each slot allowing a full transfer bandwidth for each single card. On the software side there is no difference between PCI/PCI-X or PCI Express. PCI Express is the bus standard for PC based systems for the next couple of years. Today's State-of-the-art motherboards normally have a couple of PCI Express slots but only one or two PCI-X slots. Spectrum's PCI Express x1 cards can be used in any standard PCI Express slot be it x1, x4, x8 or x16. Only some dedicated PCI Express graphics slots may not work.
