STAR-System Performance

STAR-Dundee’s software suite, STAR-System, provides a high performance software stack for accessing STAR-Dundee interface and router devices, including the STAR-Dundee PCI Mk2, cPCI Mk2 and PCIe devices and the new STAR-Dundee Brick Mk3 device.

One of the primary goals of the STAR-System APIs and drivers is to provide high performance while keeping CPU usage to a minimum. This application note describes how performance of the system is measured, and how you can repeat these tests. Most importantly, it provides details of the performance that can be achieved.
