Paper Abstract

A fast full parallel interface adapted to VERSAbus has been designed and specifically optimized for image data transfers between a VAX computer with a DR11-W and a special purpose image computer. The interface has been built around a AM9516 chip, and contains all features to optimize the bus occupation, the data transfer speed as well as the microprocessor over-head. Special features of the interface are (1) easy handling of two-dimensional image ar-rays, (2) all communication via one parallel link including all commands (no additional serial link), and (3) high speed data transfer possibility of up to 600 Kbyte/sec. A software shell is being designed on the VAX computer to provide a userfriendly and efficient environment for the software and the application groups of our department. So, all communication between the VAX computer and the image computer will be made easier.
