The PA-ISA104 is a form factor adapter between PC/104 industry standard format and the ISA standard format. It is a peripheral product of the PMC-53100 step motor controller and is designed to provide a full interface solution for that card using the on board connectors and the provided cables. It can also be used for general PC/104 to ISA purposes (in this case the on board connectors are not to be used). Using this adapter allows you to use any PC/104 card on any PC with an available ISA slot. In today’s market many PC models do not support the industrial format of PC/104, but using the PA-ISA104 adapter you can use your PC/104 almost on any computer.
|The PA-ISA/104 is transparent to the system, it does not cost you in performance or reliability, in fact the OS see the PC/104 as a standard ISA card.|
|The PA-ISA104 works together with PMC-53100 PC/104 Step Motor Controller to directs all motor and digital I/O lines to connectors on the back of the card for easy interfacing from outside the computer. The motor lines goes to a 25 Pin D-TYPE connector through a special 20 pin flat connector that is located on the PAISA104 circuit, and all digital I/O lines to a 20 pin flat connector through a special connector on the board circuit.|
