PCI32 1.6

Posted on Thursday, December 20 2007 @ 17:49:21 CET by

In brief, this is a suite of tools for hardware developers, engineers, programmers, system builders and the insatiably curious, that allows exploration of your PCI/AGP/PCI Express/CardBus/CompactPCI/PCI-X/PCI HotPlug/etc. hardware at the lowest level. Full source code is of course included, and is 100% freeware.

Some possible uses for these tools include the following:

- Fully Automating hardware recognition during Operating System installation via the -I option.
- Discovering what an "unknown device" is (both by manufacturer and model), so you can obtain drivers and support. A regularly updated database of over 19,000 entries lists virtually every known PCI device and manufacturer on the planet, even those that no longer exist.
- Examining your exact hardware configuration for curiosity or troubleshooting purposes (e.g. Latency, IRQ routing, AGP speed, resource conflicts and many more common problems can all be solved with these tools)
- Assisting with driver development and hardware design - examine your hardware 'live' as the OS/Driver sees it within Windows, and as the BIOS configures it within DOS via the -D option
- Exploring the source code for assistance with developing your own PCI code or hardware drivers
- Keeping up with modern hardware - with full PCI Express and multiple root-bus support via the -R option, PCI32 outperforms older tools tenfold.
- Auditing systems for hardware change: reports can be saved/printed/emailed/etc for reference and auditing purposes
- And much much more! Download and try it today!

Although nearly two years since the last release, I have been working on PCI32 on and off. I do try to keep the code current e.g. whenever a new feature comes out (such as a new 'new capability', Vista recognition) I do add support. But I have been very lax in releasing updates - so my apologies.

Version 1.6 adds mostly bug fixes and support for the very latest generations of hardware. There are no new major features, but there are lots of small improvements, especially when using the -r (bus tree display) feature on the latest generation machines.
