pci related question

Hi everyone!

I am developing the PCI based DAQ card and i have read the specifications, now i have two options, (1) to make the card as PCi master and (2) to develop the card as PCI target.

Where should i start from and waht should i select.

please guide me a little bit about either of option too as it is my final year project.


Regards,
Shan

I don't think you give us enough detail to make useful comments. But I guess PCI-based DAQ card means you're making a PCI card that will plug into a PC for data acquisition? If so, it will probably need to be a target not a master. Right? The PC motherboard will be the master I would assume. Maybe if you give more details you can get more help.
