Independent direct memory access eliminates delays by allowing captured images to be processed at the same time other images are being captured.
Independent Direct Memory Access (DMA) on each acquisition channel eliminates delays by allowing captured images to be processed as other images are being captured.
The on-chip direct memory access (DMA) controller can then be used to transfer large volumes of data at high-speeds without imposing a load on the CPU.
PCIbus allows a direct memory access (DMA) technique called "bus mastering," which gets back most of the throughput lost in sustained transfers.
Mellanox Technologies, Ltd., a leading supplier of high-performance, end-to-end smart interconnect solutions for data center servers and storage systems, announced that its networking solutions for VMware vSphere enable virtual machine (VM) communications over 25Gb/s Ethernet with RDMA (Remote Direct Memory Access).
Algo-Logic Systems has released latest PCI express (PCIe) with Direct Memory Access (DMA) Gen 3x8 solution for the Accelerated Finance and the Datacenter industries, the company said.
Another feature is multichannel capability that can transmit multiple, phase- aligned audio streams between multiple devices and peripherals; the multichannel feature can also support phase-coherency, improved direct memory access (DMA) efficiency, and higher bandwidth via a reduced number of ports to simplify integration and improve use of limited board space in a device.
John is well known in the industry due to positions held within the various industry organizations, including SNIA (Storage Networking Industry Association) and RDMAC (Remote Direct Memory Access Consortium).
An SoC environment with a queue manager subsystem can relieve the CPU core from moving data in and out of high bit rate peripherals while eliminating the need for a direct memory access (DMA) master for peripherals that do not need routing.
To control devices such as GPIB boards, serial ports, and data acquisition devices, your program still needs direct memory access. This is a situation where using a C device driver in a .NET environment would be ideal.
Today, however, dozens of companies are enhancing 10-gigabit Ethernet (largely in collaboration within standards bodies such as the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), Internet Engineering Task Force, Remote Direct Memory Access (RDMA) Consortium, and others) to make it performance-competitive with the specialized alternatives.
This family of single-chip C-NIC devices simultaneously runs four specific functions including accelerated TOE for data networking, accelerated iSCSI for block storage networking, accelerated remote direct memory access (RDMA) for high-performance server clustering, and remote system management pass-through functions -- all over a single Ethernet fabric.
