Interfacing to, and using PCI devices.

Postby Ondra » Tue Nov 27, 2007 5:36 am

Hi I would like to know if anyone knows what would be the process, if at all possible, required to build a PIC based module that would communicate to a PCI device. That is, using the PIC device as the Processor controlling the device. I want to control if posible a PCI modem device.

Hello Ondra

It probably is possible but may take you a long time to work out the high level protocol used by the PCI bus (though I have neve looked into this). It may be far easier to buy an off the shelf modem module designed for embedded use.
