Abstract

This article describes a technique for supporting high-speed data transfers to a Micro Channel* attached subsystem that supports Subsystem Control Block (SCB) Architecture. This technique allows an otherwise slow subsystem to take advantage of the Micro Channel's high-speed data transfer capabilities (such as data streaming) in a manner that is simple and cost effective. The ability to support high-speed transfers reduces the bandwidth requirement of the subsystem which improves overall system performance. (Image Omitted)
