Welcome to our site! EDAboard.com is an international Electronics Discussion Forum focused on EDA software, circuits, schematics, books, theory, papers, asic, pld, 8051, DSP, Network, RF, Analog Design, PCB, Service Manuals... and a whole lot more!

You can use PLX solution. PLX 9052 chip provide a PCI solution in a single chip. Also, you can use a CPLD solution, but is more expensive. For experimental solution view this url: h**p://elmchan.org/works/pci/report_e.html
If you'r really determined to gain some experience in using PCI, have a look at w**.hardware.elv.de and there PCI-Development-Board (20-372-64)
It's not cheap (about 280 Euro), but nowhere you'll get more then you paid, and a PCI start with 5 or 20 US$, i don't know.
The advance is, you get a complete buy & start board based on PSB 4600(i.e. 24 bit I/O a.s.o. are mounting yet)
Also including is a nice 400 Pages book. You learn a lot about the Win core like WDM, PCI-specs a.s.o., all you need to get your application running.
if its youre first PCI design ,I strongly recommend you to use PLX chips ,because they are very easy to use and also you won't have much problem in preparing your device driver ,since they give you Jungo WinDriver with support of their chip
there is a relative ;-) cheap (EUR 236) PCI Prototype-card (PROTO-2 PCI-Karte) available at:
**broken link removed**
You can also buy only the programmed PCI-Chip (Lattice ispLSI 1032E) for about EUR 39.
The German Elektor Magazin has published an article (Elektor, February 2001, page 16) about this Chip and the above mentioned PCI Prototyping-Card with a complete schematic and a good explanation, as well as the appropriate software.
So one should be able to build up his own PCI I/O card or what ever you want to do with such a card. I use it my self also for own designs and i am very pleased with it.
For your request i send the "pci system artchitecture" book ..
I say you before I download this file from another forum and its not mine!!!
If You need any book or pdf about "pci design" i can send more
