The PCI - HIPPI interfaces have been developed for the CERN NA 48 experiment and as such they are optimized for use in High Energy Physics data acquisition. Some special features are foreseen to simplify event building using ( HIPPI ) network switches.
The interfaces are build as a two card set with the advantages that
