Cstation PCI Bus Extension

 

Product Overview

Cstation non-proprietary bus extension technology lets you centralize all of your PCI-based computers for ease of maintenance and security; while still providing users with full PC functionality at the desktop. Available with either fiber optic or copper connectivity, the versatile Cstation technology delivers a PCI bus signal from a remote PC up to 2600 feet away.

C-Series

The expandable C-series model supports USB, PS/2 and most multimedia devices, ideal for environments requiring full PC functionality at the desktop such as financial institutions and secure government facilities. Additional features of the C-Series include a second PCI slot, offering the ability to add support for PC cards, SCSI, firewire, multiple serial ports, and multiple monitors. 

The solid-state Cstation appliance is located at each userís desk, while their PCs are relocated to a remote central location. Cstations are connected to a C-link PCI card installed in the remote PC, via copper or fiber cabling. This maintains the critical one-to-one relationship between a user and their assigned PC, preserving the PC experience for each user. The userís keyboard, monitor and mouse are plugged into the Cstation that also includes USB, audio, as well as serial and parallel device connectivity using the secondary PCI slot. An optional video card resident in the Cstation provides for true DVI support, and video quality superior to any other extension product on the market. Plus, the open architecture solution allows users to decide the computer type and graphics card desired.

L-Series

The smallest form factor and lowest priced Cstation is the 
L-series. The L-series is the ideal platform for many environments that do not require additional peripherals beyond USB and PS/2 devices, such as office automation, public kiosks and call centres. 
The solid-state Cstation appliances are located at each user's desk, while their PCs are relocated to a remote central location. Cstations are connected to a C-link PCI add-in card installed in the remote PC, via copper or fiber cabling. This maintains the critical one-to-one relationship between a user and their assigned PC, preserving the PC experience for each user. The user's keyboard, monitor and mouse are plugged into the Cstation that also includes USB, audio, as well as serial and parallel device connectivity using the PCI slot. A video card in the local Cstation provides true DVI support, and video quality superior to any other extension product on the market. Plus, the open architecture solution allows users to decide the computer type and graphics card desired.


The Cstation L-Series appliance and C-Link add-in card function as a standard PCI bridge connecting the Cstation to the remote centralized PC. Cabling is used for transport of the C-Link protocol, a point-to-point protocol with a peak transfer rate of 250 MB/s aggregate bandwidth (125 MB/s full duplex) between a C-Link interface card and a Cstation. The L1000 and L1100 contain a multifunction system board combining the C-Link protocol logic, PCI Bridge, I/O controllers, audio, USB, PS/2, and video (optional).
