For a laoboratory measurement control / data acquisition system I'd like to use a DSP board that plugs into a standard PC. A nice, low-cost card that fits the bill is this one:
However, it only comes with an ISA slot. All PCI cards that I could find are much more expensive and have tons of additional performance that I don't need.
Does anybody know of a simpler, cheaper model with PCI? I've actually seen stuff for "Compact PCI" or "PC104" buses -- but to use those I'd probably have to build te entire PC on this bus system which would cost more than a high-performance DSP board in a consumer PC.
The board must be supported by Linux drivers. The actual DSP hardware on the board is of no importance because I'm starting from zero anyway, as long as the development tools are not prohibitively expensive for a University project.
Thanks for any suggestions,
