View Full Version : Moving from PCI to PCI-e

10-28-09, 10:22 AM
Hi there,

I'm just posting my message again, I accidentally posted under WARP.

I'll be glad if anyone can help me. We bought a couple of PIKA Digital T1/E1 DSP PCI cards about 5 years ago (not sure if the hardware has changed since then), but now we want to possibly move to using the PIKA Digital T1/E1 PCIe cards because most new server only support PCI-e.

My question is, can we switch to using the PCI-e cards, and if we can, do we need to rewrite our IVR software or is the API layer the same?

The one card I took out of one of our servers in the lab has a product number of PIK-99-80732

The drivers we currently use is the MonteCarlo version 6.2

Hello Henk,

You are currently using MC 6.2 ... the latest is MC 6.6.

The API's for the DSP boards ( MM ) and the HMP boards ( PCIe ) are based on different SDKs.

However, there is a High Level API ( Grand Prix ) on the HMP PCIe boards that would make porting fairly quickly !

Aside: There are PCI chassis vendors still out there at a reasonable price.
Some options can be found here: DAX and eMicroSmart

Best Regards,
