Model PCI/PCIe 76C2

PCI/PCIe I/O & Comm Board

Three I/O and communication function module slots—
A variety of modules to choose from


NAI’s 76C2 is a PCI/PCIe multifunction I/O and communication board with three independent function module slots that can be configured with a variety of I/O and communication functions. Additional enhancements include FIFO data buffering for select modules. Using multiple DSPs, the enhanced motherboard enables higher processing power and dedicated pre-processing control for each module.

By eliminating the need for multiple, specialized, single-function boards, this unique design increases packaging density, saves enclosure slots, and reduces power consumption. The 76C2, a low-power/high-performance board, is ideally suited for rugged defense, industrial, and commercial applications.

Preexisting, fully-tested functions can be quickly and easily combined in an unlimited number of ways. Each I/O function has dedicated processing, unburdening the system Single Board Computer (SBC) from unnecessary data management overhead.

The 76C2 includes Software Support Kits (SSKs) for multiple operating systems. In addition, SSKs are supplied with source code and board-specific library I/O APIs to facilitate system integration.
