"Quadron Corporation announces qCF for Linux, a software development toolkit for ARTIC communication cards installed in Linux servers or workstations."

"Quadron's qCF for Linux enables users to create an exact solution for their communication requirements. They can run async, bisync, HDLC or custom variations on their Linux/ARTIC system. The ARTIC card has its own on-board processor, making it a dedicated programmable communications computer that resides within the Linux computer system. Because of the smart ARTIC card, users will save their Linux CPU from protocol processing overhead while they maintain in-house security, support legacy systems and propriatory protocols, or simply craft an efficient use of resources."

"The qCF for Linux toolkit uses industry-standard C language. All ARTIC tasks have access to standard C library functions. The toolkit includes I/O drivers for HDLC frames (with and without DMA), bisync frames, and async (frame and character). These I/O drivers are interrupt driven and fully buffered. Development uses a high-level, task-to-task, server-to-ARTIC queued message interface based on simple read/write calls."
