How to build your own high speed parallel I/O board running on PCI bus

Hello,
In good old days it was very easy to build interface cards for PCs with the ISA bus. In these days it seems to be a bit more difficult/complex to make
PCI bus based cards.
Would any one suggest how to build a "simple" high speed parallel I/O board for the PCI bus ? And how to program (SW tools) this card?
Thank you.

Our 5I20 "Anything I/O" card will give you 72 TTL compatible I/O bits in a PCI card format.
This is a simple FPGA based card. One of the simplest supplied configurations is 3X 24 bit I/O ports. These are simple 24 bit ports with a Data direction register so the direction of each bit is programable. Other configurations include a 12 Axis host based servo motor controller and 8 Axis embedded microcontroller based servo motor controller (Microcontroller embedded in FPGA)
The 5I20 is $199.00 quantity 1
Our USB-JTAG programmer can be used for general purpose I/O (40 bits) from a USB port the USB-JTAG is $99.00 quantity 1

This seems like a *wonderful* card, until you also need ADC capability.
I will be having only a single PCI slot, and I would be interested in finding a card that has both digital i/o and at least 16 ADC channels. -- D. Jay Newman

Is there interest in similar device for 1/4 the cost ?
