DGI Drummond Group Inc. Technologies (DGI), a premier supplier of long-distance and cellular switching products, announced today the availability of the DTI-3200 Digital Trunk Interface Card for E1 networks.
Designed for international markets, the DTI-3200 allows users of Motorola(a) EMX EMX - A programming environment for OS/2 by Eberhard Mattes <email@example.com>. EMX supports programming in C, C++ and Objective C. It works with gcc, g++, gdb, libg++, .obj linkage, DLL and headers. Version 0.8g.

It adds the interrupt-driven capabilities normally associated with a microcontroller to a DSP, which typically functions as a continuous process. See microcontroller and DSP. Communications), to utilize the latest digital techniques to upgrade their systems at a significantly reduced cost.
The DTI-3200 card is based on DGI's field-proven DTI Diffusion tensor imaging (DTI)

It offers total compatibility for use in Motorola and DSC standard E1 DTF (Digital Tape Format) A high-performance magnetic tape technology from Sony that was based on the helical scan transport and cartridge shell of Sony's highly successful 1/2" Digital Betacam. shelves and frames, as well as all DGI E1 shelves and frames. This compatibility, along with the additional benefits, allows the DTI-3200 to prolong the life of a customer's existing equipment. The DTI-3200 also significantly lowers operating costs and expenses by reducing power consumption and heat dissipation.
"We are very excited to offer an alternative to international business users of Motorola EMX switches," said Lyle Coffman, president and COO of DGI. "DGI products are designed using the most advanced technology, offering effective and competitive telecommunications solutions, that are supported by highly experienced individuals committed to exceptional service."
In addition to being pin-compatible, the DTI-3200 card provides two standard E1 interfaces with Alternate Mark Inversion (AMI) or High Density Bipolar 3 (HDB HDB Housing Development Board (Singapore government agency)
