Migration Path. Now Data General Nova, Eclipse and MV users can migrate to modern hardware while retaining existing devices and controllers without loss of function or performance. Systems that could not previously be moved to modern hardware now have a choice!
Cost Savings. Lower cost, higher-performance modern hardware can be used while retaining existing investments in hardware and software.
Time Savings. All original user software - applications, operating system and device drivers - are used without modification. No software conversion or rewriting is required.
Certification Savings. Original software is retained so certification and auditing of user application on modern hardware is minimized.
Full features. All DG I/O and DCH modes are supported, even original features dropped after the Nova 1200 line.
Reliability. Off-the-shelf hardware components are used and a comprehensive diagnostic set insures reliable system checkout and operation.
reGenerate provides complete support for:
- Programmed I/O: PIO data transfers, including DIA, DIB, DIC, DOA, DOB, DOC, S, C, and P signals.
- Interrupt facility: full interrupt handling, including INTR, INTA and MSKO processing and central processor IORST.
- Data Channel I/O: Standard common DCH data transfers, including read memory, write memory. MV extended DCH transfers are also supported. Options also supported include HSDCH and EXTMAP operations.
reGenerate works with the reNOVAte Nova and Eclipse, and eMV MV emulators to provide a complete software and hardware solution.
reGenerate enables Data General physical I/O controllers and devices to be connected to the reNOVAte and eMV emulators running on PCs. It supports both Programmed I/O (PIO) and Data Channel (DCH) transfers along with the full DG interrupt system features.
reGenerate consists of a single slot PCI controller that fits within a PC, and a six-foot twisted pair interconnect cable with corresponding paddleboard connector.
