EIA709.1 for Rolling Stock


The japanese enterprise Koito Industries, located in Yokohama, manufactures technical equipment for railway systems. Lots of components with a LonWorks communication interface have been developed for trains of type R143 and R160 of the New York City Transit (NYCT).

Koito Industries has licensed DOMOLOGIC's ANSI/EIA/CEA-709 technology to be able to realize systems with a significant higher amount of address table entries. Moreover, this technology will be implemented in certain kinds of diagnostics systems.

In this project DOMOLOGIC has transfered this technology to Virtex II-Pro FPGAs with Power-PC core and Mind-Linux.
