Interface unit is intended for data exchange between multiprocessor computer block consisted of basic modules and master controller. Since data transfer formats in multiprocessor computer block and electric parameters of signals in master controller are different, so interface unit converts data formats and reconciles them with electric parameters.

Interface unit is set into connector (slot) of PCI-Express bus of main board of master controller and converts data for transfer to multiprocessor computer block via LVDS channels.

Technical specifications (PCI-Express mode 1-lane)

- write rate, MByte/sec – 120

- read rate, MByte/sec – 140

- rate of data exchange via LVDS channel, MByte/sec – 312,5
