The new driver also offers USB connectivity, using a USB-to-parallel cable, as well as supporting older systems with Nubus
or PCI Parallel cards.
Over a year ago, FORE announced the ForeRunner NBA-200 NuBus
ATM adapter with drivers for MacTCP and AppleTalk, the first ATM adapter available for Macintosh computers.
He led an IEEE standards effort to codify the Nubus
and was instrumental in persuading Apple Computers to use the Nubus
as the backbone of their first "open" Macintosh.
It includes a NuBus
expansion card which provides the ISDN connection as well as an H.
Initial upgrade promotions include an early adopter program that extends low-cost upgrade paths to Media Composer XL for existing ABVB PCI-based customers that will offer significant new software functionality as well as the new Meridien hardware and a hardware trade-up program for existing Nubus
system owners that extends trade-up credits for the customers' old system that can be applied to the purchase of a new Media Composer XL system.
Not only does the move from NuBus
to PCI allow PC developers access to the Macintosh market, but traditional NuBus
developers can now leverage their solutions into the PC marketplace with very little additional investment.
an ISDN GeoPort telecommunications adapter; NuBus
and PCI versions of its Planet ISDN cards; and the Meet-Me Macintosh videoconferencing system.
Powered by a PowerPC 601 processor running at 66MHz, the Power Macintosh 6100/66 offers full storage, 256Kb Level 2 cache and expansion features (including one 7" NuBus
slot and an optional built-in CD-ROM drive) in a slim-line design.
, and PCI cards, as well as transceivers and hubs based on the latest 10BaseT and 10Mbps Ethernet technology.
The PCI cards from these vendors are intended to support a full range of peripherals including SCSI devices, mass storage and tape back-up products, printers, scanners, processor accelerators and NuBus
