Will you provide the software to communicate with mvXCell-8i under Windows OS?
At the moment, you could use the mvXCell-8i card in a Windows PC but the only communication possible between mvXCell-8i and the PC would be via Gigabit Ethernet. If you have a Linux PC, you can communicate via PCIe, which is faster. For Windows PCs there is IBM"s "CellAttach". This has not yet been released but should appear on IBM"s alphaWorks website before April 2009.
